In a brand new show, I dive into my first episode of what Bonjour with Blythe is supposed to be about: the wins, losses, and lifestyle around being a present-day entrepreneur.

Contrary to popular belief, freelancing and entrepreneurialism are not all working out of coffee shops and taking insta-friendly vacations. There are real challenges (and tears!) involved with running your own business. But there are also a lot... Read more

ABOUT THIS SHOW

The Jaguars snapped their 7 game losing streak with a 6-0 victory over the Colts. The team now heads to Nashville to face off against their arch nemesis in the Tennessee Titans in a Thursday night game no one wants to see--which begs the question, are you ready for this season to be over with?

We discuss this topic plus the fallout from Kareem Hunt's domestic violence incident with KC Star&#... Read more

ABOUT THIS SHOW

With the Jaguars disappointing season which has led to 7 straight losses, many fans who once thought a Super Bowl appearance was likely now expect the team to lose out; thus securing a higher draft slot. 

The trouble with this concept is when you expect your team to lose, it sets the tone of a loser mindset that can take years to fully get rid of. Former Cincinnati Reds GM Brad Kullman says the ‘lose ... Read more

ABOUT THIS SHOW

For as long as I can remember, football games have had an emotional toll on me. But when you start working in sports, they say the “fan” in you decreases a bit while the more logical side starts to take over. Now...don’t get me wrong, I still hate losing. But when the Jaguars lose 4 straight, I just don’t want it to affect my day, my life, my work, my entire week any more. At least that’s the case with this... Read more

ABOUT THIS SHOW

One of the topics on this week’s show was a CNN article asking “is your sports team killing you” 

And lemmie just tell ya, after Sunday’s embarrassing loss against the Dallas Cowboys I can say with certainty this Jaguars team is trying to kill me along with many others. Therefore, another therapeutic vent session is needed. 

On this week’s Helmets and Heels, we attempt to dissect what’s wrong wi... Read more

ABOUT THIS SHOW

Just when you thought the days of 'Bad Blake Bortles' were behind us, he reared his ugly head again on Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs.

We begrudgingly break down this game plus talk about Donna returning to the show post-baby, the Redsox ... Read more
