    This was GREAT. Listened to it all!!!! While sorting out my clothes. Love from Amsterdam. Going to the market and getting a margarita soooon

  • Kate, Mike, I just had a breakthrough in my personal development journey after listening to this and journaling. My limiting belief has been I need to fit in, and it’s coming from events that happened when I was in second grade.

    Thank you for sharing your hearts.

    I’m a bit behind on listening to the podcast. Promise I’ll catch up soon!

  • Loved hearing a man embracing his role as a husband and father and in her company! GO mike! So many women prob felt the same resentments staying home and all that is costs them. I’m launching my business too as a mother and wife now that my daughter is 4. I’m hoping and praying for my husbands support and not resenting me for the success that’s bound to follow. I’m wondering if my husband has similar triggers and that’s the source in addition to mine of our issues. Loved seeing you guys work this out amen both do your own personal work!! Love to you!
