Jenna Elfman on Life, Marriage & Making it all Work.


I first fell in love with Jenna Elfman in the late 90’s watching Dharma & Greg. I remember wanting to be more like Dharma – carefree, confident, really tall. It’s 20 years later, and I’m killing 2 out of the three :-). When I crossed paths with Jenna’s work again recently, I re-crushed. I just love her attitude toward life, and I wanted to bring some of that to you. When we got together, we recorded our conversation where we talked all about marriage, kids, jobs, self-care and trying to make it all work. Join us 🙂
