Have you looked through your closet lately? Have you closely examined the people around you? Today’s guest’s father married the two once, when he told her, “Your friends are like the clothes in your closet.” Jen Principe is a stylist for the stars, whose passion for fashion started at a young age. While now her life seems perfect, Jen’s childhood was a horrible mix of abuse, alcohol, getting kicked out of school, and more. Still, it was fashion that saved her life and to use her words, her “soul.” She’s here today to share her story and the personal and professional lessons we can use to brush up our wardrobe.
During our headline segment, we share some sad news about Robinhood, and their announcement that they’re laying off a large part of their staff. While the CEO said it’s his fault (which doesn’t help the employees who were let go), there’s still much to sort out. The guys talk about what to do if YOU are ever laid off and how to cope. We also answer Joe’s question about downsizing from two trucks to one and Doug shares his trivia.
