Embrace WA (0:00:00) Many of us have friends or family who have been impacted by foster care. Maybe they’ve taken kids into their home, or maybe they were foster kids themselves. For any of us who are familiar with the system, we know that despite all of the good it does, there is a long way to go before these kids get all the help that they need. Luckily, there are organizations like Embrace Washington who are working to support kids in the foster care system in any way that they can. For this week’s JustServe spotlight, we’re joined by the Executive Director of Embrace Washington Alene Alexander. Talking to Your Kids about Drugs (0:13:02) Imagine sending your child onto a battlefield without any protection whatsoever. No one would do that! But, how many of us allow our kids to happily go off to school, or to start their first job, without properly preparing them to face all the challenges that might be there? Challenges like drugs and alcohol. These are things we need to start preparing our kids to refuse early. With us is Pat Aussem, Master Addictions Counselor and spokesperson from the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. Prepping for Job Interviews (0:32:30) Sitting in a job interview, we all want to come off as confident and qualified even though we may be sweating and shaking. Josh Doody, expert in job-interview strategy, joins us to discuss exactly how we can prepare for and nail our next job interview. Indoor Air Pollution (0:50:29) We talk a lot about air pollution—as we should—but have you ever thought about what the air quality is like inside? We spend a lot of time indoors, especially during the wintertime, but the air inside might not be all that much better than the air outside. In fact, the US Environmental Production Agency has named indoor air quality as one of the top five health threats in the country! Here to tell us more about causes and cures for indoor air pollution is Tony Abate, certified indoor environmentalist and Vice President of AtmosAir Solutions. Brand Love (1:05:07) In a world dominated by big brand tycoons like Apple, Google and Coca Cola, making your own brand stand out to consumers can seem daunting. But, don’t give up just yet, because our next guest might have the secret to your future success. Anne Candido is the founder of Go for 2, a Brand “Love” Building consultancy that helps more people fall in love with your brand by connecting to their heart, mind, and soul.

Repairing Family Bonds (1:25:01) Families aren’t always perfect and sometimes we have disagreements, fights, and even become estranged. With so many different personalities in families, conflict is bound to arise. It’s how we deal with this conflict however, that’s most important.
