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.

In a round of interviews for her first job in economic media she was given ten minutes to prepare a ten minute presentation. She was petrified. She didn't have any qualifications for the job and everyone else in the room seemed so much smarter and better equipped. She spent five of those ten minutes in the bathroom with her handbag in her hands deliberating whether to pull out and go home. But she chose to stay and it changed her life.

Out of hundreds that applied for the job and a gruelling round of interviews in two capital European cities she was one of four people to get the job, and the only woman.
