As a busy entrepreneurial family, you are faced with hundreds of ways to invest your time, money, and energy daily. But are you investing where it really counts? 

We believe the best investment we can make as spouses and parents is always in our own personal growth and self-development. But what happens when one person in the couple grows more than the other?

Welcome back to another episode of the Family Brand Podcast! In this show...

Nothing leads to better conversations like traveling on the open road. 

Recently, we were traveling for a quick work trip and our four oldest kids were hanging out with friends for Christmas Break. We took our youngest to friends about an hour and a half away so we found ourselves with some alone time in the car. 

We started talking about our kids individually and how we can love them more intentionally in 2023. It led to one of th...

Light, love, and positivity. 

In our opinion, these are not just “new age” buzzwords.

These are some of the most important things we can spread worldwide. And we all have the power to do it!

Do you agree? 

If so, we probably can agree that it can be easier said than done. 

During the Holidays, it’s easier to keep things like that at the top of your mind, especially as you buy gifts and start creating memories with your family.

Relationships are the most fulfilling part of the human experience. It’s clear that none of us were designed to be alone and that’s one of the reasons why marriage is so powerful and life-giving for those who do it right.  For those who do it wrong, marriage and relationships can be stressful and traumatic.

How do we know? Because we have had it both ways! We have experienced firsthand how handling conflict can make or break a rela...

Authenticity. It’s a word that gets thrown around and overused these days. But what does it really mean? Today we want to talk about how to let your kids be themselves and how to feel like a less “controlling” parent.

Don’t get us wrong, it’s important to have a healthy level of authority in your kids' lives as they grow up, but there is a difference between parenting, and infringing on one's free will and the ability to ex...

WARNING: We know a lot of our listeners listen to our show with kiddos in the car or in the room.

We won't go into graphic detail or anything like that, but our conversation is more geared toward the parents or guardians of kids.

If you are a parent or have been in any sort of long-term relationship, there is a good chance that you have experienced a fight or misunderstanding because the root of the issue wasn’t addressed sooner…

There is nothing like getting a workout AND listening to a great podcast. It’s like an exercise for your body and mind at the same time and it’s one of our favorite ways to start the day.

The morning of this recording we hit the gym and listened to a powerful conversation with the one and only Jocko Willink. Obviously, that sparked up the conversation of discipline and what freedom really looks like.
