Need some help crafting an advice request? Check out our Good Question Recommendations and some Sample Questions below. 

Advice Request Form

There are two ways to compose your question: #1: In letter form. "Dear Momma B..." and write your question how you would like it read on the show (if selected) #2: Notes-style. We hope this option is easier for you if you are still forming your exact question. You can tell us free-form about your situation, and we can follow-up* with specific questions (if selected) *Make sure to include a follow-up email below if you pick #2
We address all our listeners by pseudonyms. If your question is selected, your nom will become the title for that episode. So we recommend choosing a name that relates back to your question. Or we can choose one for you.
Sometimes we might need to address you in the third-person in giving you advice. What pronouns do you use?
Please include any information that will help Momma B understand you a bit, so she can provide the most useful advice.
If your question is selected, we may have clarifying questions that require a quick email. This also lets us send you a private audio track with your advice before the podcast goes live.
This podcast is for informational purposes only and is not intended to offer diagnosis or treatment of any medical or psychological condition. All treatment decisions should be made in partnership with your health professional. *

Good Question Recommendations

Interested on what we think makes a good advice question? Awww, aren't you sweet to ask! Length-wise: your question doesn't need to be long, just enough to get the important details across.1 or 2 paragraphs usually does it!

3 Steps to Question Greatness:

  1. An interesting way to deliver facts about yourself (age, gender, profession) as they apply 
  2. A brief synopsis of your current situation and how it makes you feel
  3. End with a clear question that you have about your situation

Bonus: Give yourself an awesome nom de plume that sheds a little extra light on who you are or what your question is about. If you can't think of a pseudonym, we are happy to help with that if your question is selected.

This year I graduated from art school and I’m proud to say I’m fully-employed as a junior product designer. Sometimes, I miss doing art projects, but now I don’t know what I want to draw, paint or sculpt. In college, we always had fun projects to work on, but now I'm at a loss. But on the other hand, I'm also at a loss for time...Is it possible to get back into art with a full-time job or will I have to wait until I’m old and have earned it, then pick up a paintbrush and become the next Wayne Thiebaud? ;-)

How do you know when it's time to *move on*? Is it when you first ask yourself the question? Is there a time limit to how long you should stay somewhere? Like at a job?
I’m a thoughtful and quiet single guy. I’ve had the same job for 10 years and lived in the same place for 14 years. I’m in the midst of an emotional week: I felt humbled by coworkers, celebrating my work anniversary. I felt sad and regretful after coming across my grandparent’s obituary and not visiting them more often. And I’m fearful that I will soon be evicted when the building I live in is finally sold.
I’m trying to balance the anxiety of not making a change, while everyone around me moves on. It's a question of making a change for the sake of change,  but I don't really know where to go.

I'm a female creative professional, working in tech industry for the past 8 years. A few years ago, I left a terrible work situation at a "hot" tech start-up. Employees were pitted against each other and rewarded for gutting their peers' projects, sexual harassment was shrugged off on the daily, and shipping projects depended on currying favor with the higher ups' boys club rather than work, data and merit. I've had the good fortune of having plenty of good experiences and projects since I left, but I find my first instinct with people is still to assume they are trying to trick me, or prove that I'm not competent. I'm trying to be less suspicious, but there's a part of me that hangs onto the idea that I was supposed to 'learn' something from all that bad joojoo. What can I do to accept and validate my own experience without condemning all of humanity to the garbage heap?

I'm a normal person with a normal job and a pretty normal life. Like many people this election season, I was motivated by fear to step out of my comfort zone and get political. I made calls for the Hillary campaign, wrote #ImWithHer letters, and even wore business-casual clothes to Las Vegas where I stood outside for 12 hours as a poll observer. The thing is, I LOVED it. I loved that feeling of working hard for something that mattered, and it was about 10x more satisfying than the sizable paycheck I get from my corporate marketing job. Now the election is over and I'm doing all the things I'm supposed to be doing... reading ALL the news, calling my local and national representatives, becoming a member of the ACLU, etc. But I feel like I'm permanently changed, and now everything in my day job seems so ridiculous and utterly meaningless. I used to think my job was fun, and that I was lucky for getting paid to be creative. Now I come home feeling disgusted with myself for wasting my brain, my time, and whatever meager semblance of talent I have left. (Yep, I'm in THAT kinda dark place.) My question is: What do I do now? How do I know if this feeling is a real sign to make a change or just a fleeting fancy of some 32-year-old with the social consciousness of a freshman at a liberal arts school?
