Throughout our lives we have many conversations. With friends, family, co-workers, strangers, etc... The question is, how are you entering those conversations? Are you waiting for your turn to talk or are you genuinely listening and making connection?
In this episode we explore conversation and connection, how we can easily slip into judgement or simply wait until our turn to talk, how to build an awareness of that, and specific areas we have seen this in our lives.
Listen in and let us know your thoughts, and remember, if you find value in this episode, share it with just one friend!

This topic came from our good friend and listener Josh Carasquillo as he was talking to Drew about how he began to become aware that the energy he brought into the home each day effected the his wife and child. We break down how our energy (positive or negative) can effect relationships and atmospheres, how to build an awareness of what type of energy you're carrying at certain times and in certain situations, the difference between "faking it" short term and long term, the importance of communication between you and the people you care about, and how we might be able to positively change our energy in the moment.
This was a really fun discussion and we look forward to your feedback... so listen in and make sure you BRING THE ENERGY!

In the past week there have been four active shooter events in the US. A work place violence situation at a WalMart in Mississippi, the Garlic Festival shooting in California, a shooting at a WalMart in Texas, and the morning of this recording was a shooting an hour away from our studio at a bar in Dayton, OH.
Aaron has spent the last decade learning about and teaching on the subject of Active Shooters. In the last four years he has taught seminars across the country, written a book on the topic, and done numerous podcast interviews. He spends a lot of time talking about this topic.
The following episode is not to give answers or take sides, but more importantly to explore the complexity of talking about this subject. We endeavor to identify issues we have in communication, and try to give insight into how we might have more meaningful conversations to help us begin the journey to truly create some type of positive change.
We genuinely hope you find value in this conversation and look forward to exploring it with you.

This week we dive into the topic of money. What story do we tell ourselves about money? What are our core beliefs around money? How do these beliefs guide our lives? We discuss service vs sacrifice, self fulfilling prophecies, money as a tool, and much more!

This week we break down the book Nonviolent Communication and the process of NVC laid out by the author Marshall B. Rosenberg Ph.D. Don't let the title distract you from the root of the message. The book is about distinguishing between what we observe and how we evaluate, learning to separate judgement from discussion, identifying ours and others needs, and learning how to request what we need to satisfy those needs. The book is very eye opening and one that we have already found value in implementing into our lives and we imagine that you will as well.

In our very first episode we talked about the idea of "What makes you think your thoughts are real?" It's an interesting thought. we often don't realize just how much our imagination shapes our reality. We tend to fill in the blanks with our thoughts that may or may not be true. This can be a gift and a curse. In this episode we talk about three distinguishing between Noticing, Imagining, and Feeling and how these words/concepts are how we shape our reality.
