So many of us are chasing goals—achieving them and STILL never feeling satisfied! I started noticing that the need for MORE MORE MORE was masquerading as wanting “growth” in my life—and it was leaving me feeling drained and crappy! So we’re diving into how to root out whether your goals and dreams are rooted in the healthy, empowering place of GROWTH vs the draining need for MORE! It has helped me be braver to try new ideas and helped me be bolder in making decisions! And I know it can do the same for you, so I’m excited for you to listen up!

Whether you’re on social media for friends and family, using it to build a business, or have sworn off of it all together, social media affects all of us BIG TIME. There’s no denying it! So I wanted to share my story, and all I’ve learned about how to use Instagram in a way that enriches my life and business, rather than drains it. It’s been a long road! My life, of course, is not actually ruined, but for a while, I absolutely let my performance on Instagram determine my mood for the day, how I felt about my business, and without realizing, I let it affect how I valued myself as a person. I open up quite a lot here, it's ROUGH, haha, but I really hope that sharing what I’ve learned serves you, or helps you feel less alone and empowered. Come have a DTR with us and help make IG work for you! Eric's Closing song is "I'm Still a Stupid Kid" by Valentine & the Regard.

I love listening and becoming more "awesome"with you both! I'm a special needs mom and listening has helped me be more content with my now and to see that I can progress mentally and improve any situation with my attitude and big picture vision. Thank you for bringing a balance to my crazy life where too often I was battling myself to feel like I was achieving and progressing. My vision has changed, my goals have changed, I feel more "awesome" than I ever have!

I LOVE this podcast! Alison is fun and crazy, and Eric is calm and easygoing. They're both so smart, and optimistic, and honest/open that I feel like we're actual friends in real life. Listening to this podcast brings me peace, and light, and delivers so much good information about self confidence and self improvement... I already feel like a better person just by sitting here and listening to them. I just can't get enough!
