Best Practices for a Healthy, Wealthy and Financially Successful Marriage w/ Stacy Francis (Ep.7)

How you manage the finances in your relationship is a good barometer of your relationship health… Yes, a bold statement.

The thing is that finances equal the relationship’s resources and ability to realize the couples’ Best Life… Now, I’m not claiming that you need a ton of money to have your Best Life, nor that if you have a ton of money that you are realizing your Best Life… It’s not about the amount…

What I am claiming is that how you manage the finances in your relationship is an indicator of the strength of your partnership and what kind of life you are able to realize…

When there is lack of transparency, collaboration, and partnership in money management the same can potentially be found in other areas of the relationship…

In today’s episode, I have a compelling and resourceful conversation about how to manage finances in our relationship with our partner and how to create a secure and wealthy future. And, who knew, almost anyone can become a millionaire!

Listen to the Podcast Episode!

Hope this information serves you and helps you get on the path to your Successful Relationship.

How to Thrive this Holiday Season by Managing Expectations, Temptations, and Family Dynamics - Emma Solo (Ep.6)

Do you find the Holiday Season stressful and overwhelming, wonderful and magical, or all of the above? You are not alone in feeling ambivalent about the holidays. There is so much that takes place and that we experience in a short amount of time. And yes, I know- first world problems…

None-the-less this is part of our experience and to deny it or minimize doesn’t serve us.

The opposite is true. In having awareness of how we are operating and feeling we can have our own back, address what’s not serving us, and create the magic we seek…

The holidays, just as anything else in our life, are what we make of them. Do we make them more challenging than they have to be? Do we create bondage we are approach? Do we trigger ourselves? Do we give our power away? Do we create misery? All this can be avoided and the opposite created.

We can have a smooth end-of-year, magical holidays and exciting new year only if we are intentional and proactive about what we create…

In today’s episode, I fly solo to help you have your own back. I cover the things that make the holidays challenging and offer ways to manage, anticipate and get ahead of them so a smoother and more enjoyable, joyful and magical season…

About Men: Don't Let Anger Issues and Toxicity Affect Your Holidays w/ Richard Heller (Ep.5)

Do your holiday plans and activities get derailed? Have you ever wondered about the impact of the feminist movement on the romantic relationship and on men?

I have, a lot, as a part of the work I do with couples… Because we not only have all the emotional and psychological aspects at play in our relationship dynamics, but we have all sorts of other influences affecting how we get along… And gender and our own individual energies play a huge role in how we experience the relationship and each other, and what kind of relationship we are able to create at the end of the day.

The key is always to bring awareness to all we do and to all our contexts. This is especially important in the relationship with our life Partner. For bringing more awareness, and higher levels of consciousness, to our interactions helps us more easily understand each other and connect more deeply. It allows us to transcend the social constructions and other minutia of life and revel in our love. It allows us to create a more joyous, harmonious, and loving relationship.

In today’s episode, we have a very special guest, Richard Heller, and we discuss the male / masculine experience in relationship and what this means for them, for the female / feminine, and the relationship as a whole. We tried our best to be as inclusive as possible in our conversation and ask that you tailor the pronouns and other relevant gender aspects to fit your situation and relationship constitution. The intention is to address and help navigate the differences between partners and not necessarily the social constructs around gender…

We have a meaningful conversation around what man / male / masculine needs in relationship, what they contribute, and how to collaborate in partnership for mutual satisfaction and to create a successful relationship.

Simple, Sexy and Super Generous Money Management w/ Christine Luken (Ep.4)

Whoever said that budgeting, crunching numbers and money management is dry and boring?

Finances and money management can be a source of conflicts in many relationships. Partners bring their own backgrounds, experiences, and habits to their relationship when it comes to finances, and they have their own relationship with money.

Top this with their own programming around abundance, worth, value and so on, and their relationship dynamics to make things more complicated, and not for nothing money is a hot topic for many couples.

Usually, one of partners is savvier or more interested in crunching the numbers, tracking the money, and managing the finances. Which leaves the other at odds with the whole process and money matters. This is not their strength and find the whole thing tedious, which frustrates their partner even more.

In today’s episode, we have a very special guest, Christine Luken, and we discuss how money is emotional, how our unconscious programming plays a role in our money management, how the partners can create a money management system that’s mutually satisfying and actually fun and sexy! We also covered the importance of being generous for creating more abundance and for its own sake. A fabulous mindset around the holidays but in life in general.

Use Your Strengths to Have a Huge Impact on Your Relationship w/ Nermine Zakhary (Ep.2)

Did you know that our strengths can have a huge positive impact in our relationship, as well as a negative impact? Yep. We can influence, create change, and spearhead transformation in our relationship with our strengths. But if we are not intentional about how we use them, they can also be misused and be detrimental to our relationship…

It all starts with having awareness of our strengths, owning them, and understanding how to use them… For then we can capitalize on what they offer making our interactions smoother and more meaningful.

When we intentionally operate from our strengths we radiate, entice, and invite others to a wonderful dance with us.

We have impact in the moment, on our partner’s experience, and on their heart.

When we lead with our strengths, cultivate them, and use them to complement and align with our partner in our mindset, communication, interactions, connection and collaboration we have a huge impact on creating the relationship of our dreams…

Today we have another special episode with a wonderful guest, Nermine Zakhary, speaking on how to discover and use our strengths.

We have a fabulous time delving into strengths and how they impact our relationship, and we explored mine to illustrate the power of using our strengths intentionally.

The Secret Ingredients for a Successful Relationship w/ Carole Cullen (Ep.1)

Who says being in a committed relationship is hard? Though relationships can be challenging they don’t have to be if we are intentional about how we go about creating our successful relationship.

There are some key ingredients that we need to bring to our relationship for it to be gratifying and successful.

Research shows that successful couples demonstrate some key ingredients that we’d be remiss not to emulate. And, according to John Gottman, renowned relationship researcher, the opposite is also true. There are key characteristics that when found in a relationship are strong predictors of break-up or divorce.

Committed relationships, marriage, are special, delicate, and very important to our overall wellbeing. They are the pillar of our society as they stabilize the family unit, and are the strongest influence on our children.

This is why it’s my mission to cater to the wellbeing of couples. After 20 years of working with couples and helping them create their successful relationship, I embraced a longtime dream of hosting a relationship podcast. Which I’m proud to launch today!

Today’s video is special as it’s a video of my first podcast episode- I’m so excited to launch our new podcast…
