The Portlander’s story is fascinating, inspiring and oh-so real. Molly McConnell is one of the last honest fighters …in the ring and out. The truth hurts and so do Molly’s punches. And, believe me, she doesn’t pull any! Get to know one of Portland’s best-kept secrets on the Earth2World Network.

Tell Me About It: Balancing Work and Life Ep.16

Join host Francine Raften as she welcomes two inspirational women to “Tell Me About It!” – Cinda Stevens Lonsway is a writer, speaker and author of “ROAR!” and Jayne Dearborn, CEO/designer for JayneMax handbags and founder of the nonprofit Blue Butterfly Foundation for childhood leukemia research talked about whether work / life balance is achievable, or a myth! Folks on the streets of downtown Portland had strong feelings about this one! One hundred years from now, how do you think historians will remember us? Our panel, and Portlanders at large struggled with this one…would it be ideas? leadership? technology? or poverty, environmental issues or our treatment of children and animals?  Plus, the pro’s and con’s of requiring community service before high school students can graduate and the movement to eliminate standardized testing.  That and so much more on this week’s episode of “Tell Me About It!” with Francine Raften!
