In this episode, you will gain valuable insight into how to start the dreaded money conversation with your partner or spouse. Adam Kol and I discuss the ways in which you can start this conversation and why it's so important. Listen in for all of Adam's amazing advice and expertise.Here is the Couples Money Personality Type Quiz! bit.ly/LoveMoneyQuiz...Who is Adam Kol?My Journey into Couples Financial CounselingI started this business because I believe that much financial stress is avoidable. You can have the peace and financial freedom you want and deserve, and I will help you get there.So, how’d I end up here?Well, I’ve been a finance geek since Day 1 thanks to my grandfather ceaselessly watching CNBC, AKA the stock market channel. Sitting by his side daily led me to study Economics at the University of Miami. While there, I took a job at a financial services company called Northwestern Mutual. There, I developed a love for working with families to build healthy financial futures.Later, I graduated from Duke Law School and got a Master’s Degree in Tax Law at NYU. I strengthened these skills at a large accounting firm, Deloitte, and later at a nonprofit focused on ending homelessness.Along the way, I began providing coaching of all kinds, as well as gaining conflict resolution experience and becoming a Certified Mediator. Eventually, I realized that financial stress was a huge stressor for so many couples. Thankfully, my unique background as a Mediator, Financial Advisor, and former Tax Lawyer perfectly positioned to profoundly impact this area.I began to focus on providing individually-crafted Couples Financial Counseling and trainings, and that’s how you found me here today..AHK Coaching, LLCContact@AHKCoaching.com(954) 263-5719https://ahkcoaching.com/Adam on Instagram...Ways to connect with The Whole Veterinarian!Instagram: @thewholeveterinarianFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thewholeveterinarian/Email: thewholeveterinarian@gmail.comwww.thewholeveterinarian.comSIGN UP for the The Whole Veterinarian Newsletter HERE!....Music Credit: Journey of Hope by Alexander Nakarada

Sign up at https://www.peacewithinmindfulness.com/join ...Episode description - Savoring the PositiveFocusing on the positives in our life doesn’t mean we turn away from our negative experiences or the challenges we face - rather we take time to honor the good things that exist alongside the challenges - we purposefully give our brains and bodies time to soak up and enjoy the positive experiences and emotions we have. Recent research on neuroplasticity has shown how our experiences and what we focus our attention on shapes our brain. Our brain is always changing and evolving. We can counter our biologically driven negativity bias and deliberately take in the good.Purposefully paying attention to our positive experiences and emotions can have clear outcomes on our daily lives both personally and professionally. For example, research has shown that being in a positive mindset as opposed to negative or neutral can support focus and attention, which can impact accuracy and decision making regarding patient care."Savoring the Positive" is a practice in which we specifically direct our attention to a positive experience we've had - and really take the time to savor our feelings regarding this experience. This practice can then be applied to moments throughout our day. ...Ways to connect with The Whole Veterinarian!Instagram: @thewholeveterinarianFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thewholeveterinarian/Email: thewholeveterinarian@gmail.comwww.thewholeveterinarian.com....Music Credit: Journey of Hope by Alexander Nakarada

Grief is not the easiest topic to discuss. I'm generalizing here, but I think most of us would like to avoid it completely. Unfortunately, we will all face loss and grief at some point in our personal lives and many of us have already met it head on. Veterinarians deal with grieving owners all of the time; we may not be professionally trained but we get pretty good at helping clients through this. But, have we made any effort to help ourselves deal with these emotions? Today I speak with Rachel Liepman, DVM, MS, DACVIM about her personal experiences with loss and what she is learning along the way. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your story and for helping to normalize the discomfort!...About Dr. Liepman!Dr. Rachel Liepman is an equine internist in Cave Creek, Arizona at Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center.
