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!'s Closing song is "I'm Still a Stupid Kid" by Valentine & the Regard.

What does it EVEN MEAN to be yourself? It seems like something that should be effortless and easy right? But instead of it being more effortless to “be yourself” the older you get, sometimes it actually feels harder. Add having kids, relationships, school, work, or who you think you should be vs. who you want to be! And oh man! What is life?! But before you have a Zoolander-esque breakdown, (“WHO AM I?!”) in this episode we are going into what it even means to “be yourself”, why it’s easy to feel lost, and then giving you 4 awesome ideas for how to be MORE of yourself, no matter where you are showing up! Eric's closing song is "Into the Black Hole" by Valentine and the Regard. The instrumental is in the Lofi Dream Pop Collection at Pleasant Pictures Music Club. pleasantpictures.clubUse code: AWESOMEWITHERIC for 20% off

“Your best opportunity for connection is when your emotions are negative.” When I heard parenting and relationship expert Georgia Anderson say that, I screamed, “I WILL GET HER ON THE PODCAST!” And boom baby I did! In this truly life-changing episode, I ask Georgia to use her 30 years of experience in relationship and parenting education to help us see how we can employ emotion coaching on ourselves when we FEEL LIKE CRAP! She shares HOW to use negative emotions to build stronger relationships and a greater connection to self! It’s so good guys. She also gives Eric and I a little bit of relationship and parenting coaching, helping us see how we can better navigate my BIG feelings and our daughter’s too! If you’re a human, who has negative emotions, you’re going to freaking love this episode! I’m so excited for you!

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!
