When it comes to confidence, we can too often sit in a state of waiting - waiting for something to  magically happen or shift to finally get over our fears and anxieties. But confidence is something that has to be built, honed and practiced. And the only way to practice is to simply do the thing for the first time, no matter how scary. 

Today we’re talking about how to build the confidence to pursue your n...

My guest on this episode is my partner, Kelly Gardner. He and I met when he was a guest on this podcast  (Episode #359 “Building A Community Of Better & More Present Fathers” With Kelly Gardner) talking about his work as a Personal Growth Coach and Men’s Group Facilitator. At the time, it was just an interview. But, things quickly changed, and I can honestly say this is the best romantic relationship I’ve ever experie...

When we try to force a relationship with someone who isn’t a good fit, it’s time to do some serious work on our own self-worth. People often end up “chasing” the same type over and over, hoping they’ll uncover something about ourselves we just aren’t seeing. But to have a healthy relationship with someone else, we first need to recognize our own innate self worth - with and without them. 

It may involve a ...

Trust is like the oxygen that fans the flames of a relationship. When you can fully grant trust to your partner, it allows each of you to fill each other’s needs within the relationship.

Not trusting your partner is often not a sign of their untrustworthiness, rather lack of trust in yourself - which is where the work then needs to happen.

Usually when we think about hormones, we think about mood swings, bloating and weight gain. But our hormones play a massive factor in everything from emotional control, to alleviating pain, bloating and inflammation, better sleep, steadier eating patterns, stress management and sex drive. 

And knowing how to control our hormones means having much greater control over how we show up physically, mentally and...

Writing is one of the most powerful things you can do to heal and grow. Having just penned a book on relationships (coming spring 2024) with my incredible friend and host of the Next Level Human podcast, Dr. Jade Teta, we’re taking you behind the scenes to explain the whirlwind physical and emotional process of writing an entire book in just 9 days.

But we’re not just talking about outlines, story arcs and...

This short episode covers two very fundamental questions I ask my self routinely that have completely changed my relationships and the way I communicate:

  1. Am I acting out of fear or out of love right now?
  2. How can I show up in a way right now that I’ll be proud of 5, 10, 20 years from now? 

Both questions likely require a lot of unpacking, vulnerability and digging insi...

Like the saying “once burned, twice shy,” a healthy relationship can be hard to trust if you’ve been burned in the past. The best relationships might even bring up more resistance because they can feel like unfamiliar territory. 

But one of the best things we can do to heal from past scars is to lay our defenses down and be open to allowing love and all its potential beauty the chance to come in.

This time, I’m answering the questions. 

This special episode of Room to Grow™ was taken from my guest appearance on the Between Heaven and Earth podcast hosted by Intuitive Coach, Lisa K. Lisa invited me on her show to talk about how to successfully approach dating, including how self love, intuition, trust, loneliness and playfulness all play a major factor in both new and long-term relationships.

Fear of change can often leave us dangling on the cusp of our own massive success. Consequently, instead of unleashing our full power to the universe, we lock ourselves in the subconscious “safe zone” of the things, relationships, situations and habits that minimize our power. 

Change is indeed scary as hell. But stepping into your full power requires letting go of the doubts, uncertainties and people hold...

“How do I know if they’re the one?” I get this question more often than I can tell you. But truthfully, I don’t believe there’s only one person in the world for us. And trying to fit that perfect someone into your preconceived love story presents a number of challenges and very, very often keeps people in bad relationships longer than they should be.

Instead, we should all focus on how we can become the on...

Not everyone deserves a place in your heart. But closing ourselves off isn’t the answer either. Boundaries can become fortresses. And then we wonder why no one can ever break through. 

Yet it’s not always about setting every boundary under the sun with each individual person in your life. It’s about showing up as the person you want to be, and watching the magic that unfolds as a direct and specific result...

The journey to self-love begins with liking yourself first. But doing this work can present one of the biggest battles we all face as humans: loneliness. It's one of the things that keeps us in mediocre relationships far past their expiry dates, because being in the company of another seems, in theory, better than being alone.

But relationships with others are not the cure to loneliness. And believe it or ...

There are more “labels” than ever floating around out there, especially in the areas of self-help and personal development. Occasionally, labels can be helpful by helping us to feel less isolated and alone in our “weirdness.”

But identifying too strongly with any particular label has the potential to do more harm than good. They prevent us from viewing individuals (including ourselves) as a whole, complex ...

This conversation is hands-down one of my favourites to date on this podcast.

We’re speaking with Traver Boehm, an author of two books, 2 time TEDx Speaker, men’s coach and founder of the UNcivilized Men’s Movement, which is radically redefining the way men around the globe experience their masculinity by uniquely blending both primal elements of manhood with massive doses of consciousness.

Can people change? The short answer is yes. The real question is: can we have the compassion to see one’s (including our own) potential, versus forever holding them to past behaviors and actions?

Honouring one’s potential to change doesn’t mean erasing the wounds of the past. But there’s incredible healing power in forgiveness and in recognizing one’s humanity - especially your own.

When we make decisions that we know are hard now, but will be worth it in the end, that’s choosing your hard. On the outside, what looks like hard work, messiness and sacrifice, means taking the time to properly grow the roots needed to live your most abundant, unshakable life. 

It can feel like hunkering down for a long, dark winter. But your winter won’t last forever, because spring always comes.  Those ...

If the dating pool is feeling smaller and smaller for you, ask yourself: why is that a bad thing? What if it actually means a better chance at the relationship you’re looking for? 

This requires a reframe of what “abundance” truly means when it comes to dating and relationships. 

The fact is, not everyone is a match for you. But you don’t actually want MORE options, you want the RIGHT options....
