It's holiday season (wait, again, already?!) and for most of us, that equates to GIVING season. We're talking today about why we're 100% here for that...we think giving (and giving back) are vital to happy living. In this episode we talk about why we think the giving mindset is so important and how it builds connection and community. Whether you're a check-writer, a soup-kitchen worker, or just a smile and "thank you" giver - we're talking to you. Listen in as we chat about all the different ways we've witnessed the giving spirit lately; we promise at least one smile for your day!
We're chatting about IMPOSTER SYNDROME! It's the worst! What exactly is this affliction? In this episode we dive into what imposter syndrome really is, how to recognize if you have it, and most importantly - how to get OVER it. Whether you're 20 or 70, you're going to want to give this episode a listen because it might apply to you!

Let's talk about COMMUNICATING! Effective communication is a vital part of any relationship. In this episode, we're talking about why you should care about the messages you're sending, what you'll want to consider before your next conversation, and HOW to make yourself a better communicator. Saying what you mean to get what you want is ALWAYS important. Whether you're working on those personal relationships or building your business and want to be taken more seriously, you'll want to tune in to this one. Plus, we're sharing our 5 Tips for Effective Communication!   
Let's talk about the notion of "busyness"... Have you, like us, found yourself complaining about being so crazy busy? Like, "good, but SO busy..."? In this episode, we're breaking down the idea that "Busy" is some sort of badge of honor we wear. We're talking about the ways people regularly misuse the idea of being “busy". We explore how people (us, too) often use the term as a reflex excuse instead of saying what they REALLY mean, and we share how breaking the habit of "busyness" can truly help you live better.   Links referenced in this episode:  https://www.johnshopkinshealthreview.com/issues/spring-summer-2016/articles/the-cult-of-busy www.betterwithsisters.com/podcast  
Let's face it; we can be REALLY good at being strong, independent women. But, what if that tendency to "handle it" all by yourself is actually hurting you? Today we're talking about how reaching out for help sometimes can mean good things for you AND your loved ones. As always, we're sharing how we've struggled with and learned from this lesson in our own lives. We invite you to listen in and gain a little insight from our sisterly perspective.  Links referenced in this episode: https://www.betterwithsisters.com/resources/get-help/  
Today's conversation is about all things BACK TO SCHOOL! Summer vacation is coming to an end for all of us with kids, which can mean mixed feelings. Do you celebrate getting the kids out of the house and back into the classroom, or do you hate summer coming to an end?  In this episode, Cathy and I are chatting about how we've spent our vacation weeks with our kids and how back to school definitely feels different for us with kids in elementary school vs. college. Plus, we're sharing what the first day of school was REALLY like for us last week...those idyllic "first day" pics on social media don't always tell the whole story, right? Join us for another fun conversation and don't forget to share your own back to school stories with us! www.betterwithsisters.com FB & IG: @betterwithsisters

Let's talk about PARENTING! It's a tough job, and because we love our kids, we want to do our best at it, right?! But, what goals are we specifically working towards?
