“...When you get yourself into these situations, you drink a lot of wine, and you say, I’m just going to do the best I can do.
I’m going to get out of my comfort zone. Who cares?! It’s 500 people in the audience, if I humiliate myself, if I trip…they’ll have a good laugh, and it will be water under the bridge; and my life will go on.”
- Jenna McCarthy, The Moment HQ podcast
Meet Author, speaker, relationship expert Jenna McCarthy. Jenna has authored more than a dozen funny books for kids and adults, as well as being a popular keynote speaker at events across the United States. In fact her TED talk was what became a key life changing moment.
I had the pleasure of first connecting and interviewing Jenna 2012, and later wrote a review for her book, which said: She's witty, intelligent and downright funny without trying. Today, I can say…this still stands!
Listen to our very humourous conversation as we discuss writing, children, and her TED talk.
