54: Codeswitch Real Talk (Part 1 of 2)

54: Codeswitch Real Talk (Part 1 of 2)

October 28, 2019

In this series, we have a heavy conversation around the topic of.... conversations. More specifically,  how individuals in minority races and ethnicities have to use codeswitching in order to fit in with, gain traction with, or simply get treated equally among dominant groups. Darryl shares his stories about how he first learned codeswitching and now, how he has to do it on a daily basis. This episode is part 1 of a 2 part series, and trust me, you don't want to miss either this week's or next week's episode.

53: Get Over The Bull-Shift

53: Get Over The Bull-Shift

October 21, 2019
Some life changes happen quickly and you have to learn to adapt fast in order to survive your new circumstances.  However, most life changes happen over time, in a shifting pattern that is barely recognizable until you are on the other side of the change.  In this episode we talk about how life-shifts occur in work and in your relationships, and how to navigate them so you are stronger on the other side.

51: Have You Defined Your Values?

51: Have You Defined Your Values?

October 7, 2019

"Last night, we were supposed to record this episode.  Instead, we had to have a long, heart-to-heart conversation about something that was bothering Darryl:  really laying out our family values for ourselves and our children."

See, we've been down this road.  We lead values-based workshops, we've determined and set our own values for ourselves and our relationship; yet, we realized that we really needed to set them for our family. 

In this episode, we talk about HOW we do this in our workshops (even grab a FREE copy of the values elimination sheet we're talking about in our Level-Up Portal - HERE) and Darryl talks about his used-to-be-very-lucrative-nightlife working in the clubs and how that's changed now that he's a family man.

49: Go After What You Want

49: Go After What You Want

September 23, 2019
Are you in the driver's seat, making the decisions for your life?  Or do you sit in the passenger seat and let circumstances dictate your life? In this episode, we talk about why it's important to have intention and be deliberate in how you achieve your goals.
 
We also discuss how we have to work around our VERY different personality tendencies when we set intentions or work towards achieving something in our relationship, our business, or as parents.  You'll hear how we had to go with the flow when we were expecting our first child, how we meticulously planned for our second child, how we deliberately worked the system for our destination wedding, and our usual tips and takeaways so you can put deliberation and intention into your lives on a daily basis!

48: Setting Boundaries When Sharing Information

48: Setting Boundaries When Sharing Information

September 16, 2019
Back when we found out we were expecting our first child, we realized that not only would it be life-changing, it would also be... work-changing.  Because we worked together, we could feel the gossip-mill turning before we ever even announced that we were pregnant (mainly because we hadn't told many people we were even dating... the pregnancy was bound to be a HUGE surprise). 

In this episode, we discuss the boundaries we've learned to set surrounding sharing personal information at work.  You'll not only get a very personal story from us, but you'll learn how to navigate sharing personal information with colleagues, clients, and customers.

47: It’s Okay To Let Your Guard Down

47: It’s Okay To Let Your Guard Down

September 9, 2019
Letting your guard down can be scary.  So many people will build walls to protect themselves from getting hurt, but then wonder why they aren't successful in their relationships or even in their careers. 
Vulnerability is the key to success, because without it, you can't ever begin to build strong relationships with your partner or with coworkers, friends, or family members. 

In this episode, we get (*gasp*) vulnerable discussing letting our guards down.
