We are living in a time where we are being forced to take a time-out, be reflective, and re-prioritize what we thought might have the most important. During this time K and I think it's important to inspire us to be aware of the current events which are happening and to also use this time to bring on guests and discuss topics that will encourage you to your greater purpose. Honestly, things are scary now and the events unfolding are unprecedented. However, they also present a unique time to re-evaluate, re-focus and re-energize. Out of scarcity and turmoil, often comes great ingenuity.
Please listen in as K and I interview Karyn Pettigrew CEO and Founder of Zoe Goes and Beyond Blind Spots - Karyn has a special story that will resonate with you. She discusses how she learned to lean into her inner voice and intuition as she shifted from Corporate life into Entrepreneurship. Her company Zoe Goes was designed to create sustainable fashion with high-quality clothes that are easy to wear. It's fashionable wear for moms, and easy for those of us who travel frequently with just a carry-on. But, yet her clothes will appeal to those of you who want to be fashion-forward without having to overthink your wardrobe choices. Karyn has also expanded her to work to develop an organization to help others live a life that is tied to their personal and spiritual purpose.

COVID-19 is top of mind for many of us and your feelings about it have likely intensified over the last several weeks. While we don't want to add to creating additional anxiety around what is happening, we thought it would be a good time to think about ways to look at your relationship and do things that can help to nurture it. Like COVID-19, there will always be outside, external forces that we can't control that will come along that will challenge the fabric and framework of your relationship. It's important to find ways to use factors outside of your relationship to keep it nourished, thriving, and healthy. Listen in and let us know what you think.

Entrepreneurship can add another layer to a relationship. The demands of running a business and being responsible for bringing in revenue for your business and employees can add additional pressure when your workday doesn't end like the usual 9-5 job role. However, entrepreneurship has its rewards too. Being enmeshed in doing something in which you are passionate, or being able to create your legacy with your trademark on your business endeavors can't be understated or underrated. There is pride in establishing and forging your pathway independently. It takes lots of grit, determination, and doggedness, but we've seen over and over again with innovative businesses that it's possible.

Having a family, which includes their triplets, has continued to impact how they approach the legacy they are building for themselves and their family.

You and I live in a world of instant gratification. Many things are readily available at the click of a button, the use of a credit card (instant pay via your phone) along with many other conveniences that life affords us. Sometimes instant gratification can be a good thing. However, in other times the beauty and joy in receiving something that you have worked hard for can come as a result of delayed gratification. Whether you are single, in a new relationship or a more mature relationship sometimes delaying gratification is critical in having a relationship that is healthy, fulfilling and long-lasting. Listen in as K and I discuss how and why delayed gratification can be a good thing.
We have a new episode of Bedtalks for you.
This topic came to mind because K and I were having a discussion about a friend of ours who was married over 20 years who is now going through a divorce. She stated that even though her divorce isn't yet final, that she has prayed and manifested that she will be married in 2020. As a relationship coach, I wanted to delve deeper into this topic because this isn't uncommon, but it also got our wheels spinning regarding how people perceive marriage versus single life.
Does being married make you feel more significant versus being single? Do we inadvertently attach more status to being married? Is it true that you will be happier and less lonely in a marriage versus being single?
K & I dig deeper into this topic and answer these questions and many more during our podcast discussion.
Until next time, XoXo
