EP 44: Melting the Ice (Sometimes Change is Invisible)

Hello, World!

IMG_5307.JPG

I’m pleased to share a mini solo episode about the nature of positive change today! Cynthia was busy interviewing an AMAZING guest (stay tuned in 2019), so I grabbed the mic and shared some of my recent learnings from a truly excellent book: Atomic Habits by James Clear.

I’ll explain why change is often invisible for a long time when we make a positive change in our habits. If you’ve ever given up on a new habit because you weren’t seeing results quick enough, this episode is for you.

Hint: Meaningful change is usually very slow and we often quit before we can get to the good stuff.

Here’s to helping you melt the ice in your life!

Onward,
Brennen

EP 43: Healthy Parenting With Claudia Morandi

Claudia Morandi is the mastermind behind Wholesome Mom a blog where she shares her experience, tips, and tricks for getting her children to eat healthy and stay active, while also helping parents who may need some extra support getting themselves back in shape.

Originally from Venezuela, Claudia’s inspiration for Wholesome Mom came from watching her children adapt to the American lifestyle, which included more processed food options and less activity. But as her children started adopting some of the American culture and ways, Claudia started talking to them about how food can affect their health - both physically and emotionally - and realized that she was truly passionate about food and wellness.

As Claudia noticed what worked with her children to get them to eat and behave better, and what didn’t -  she saw this as an opportunity to teach others how they can help their families live healthier lives. Claudia is now dedicated to helping others with children live healthier lives through her business Wholesome Mom.

Prior to Wholesome Mom, Claudia lived in Venezuela with her husband and 2 daughters. She was the owner of Fibras Clothing, a fitness clothing line for women, which was widely successful. Her line was picked up by a retailer but sadly, Claudia’s political situation was not ideal, as she built her dream in the middle of a political crisis. She and her family sought asylum in the US in 2015, and has been here since.

In this “best of” episode, Cynthia reflects on Thanksgiving and tells the story about how she landed this big interview with author Maureen Sherry before we had published even a single episode of GOAL MAGIC. It’s a pretty cool story of having faith and reaching out. We hope you enjoy the backstory, and also the wonderful interview with Maureen Sherry!

EP 41: Cynthia Breaks Free, Part 2

 Cynthia and Ray are enjoying life and feeling free in Florida.

Cynthia and Ray are enjoying life and feeling free in Florida.

Cynthia and I recorded this episode the week of Thanksgiving. Cynthia updated us on her big move to Tampa, Florida, and we dug deep into how in some ways she had to “break her own heart” to make the change. We both decided that it helps to have a little (or a lot) of faith when choosing the road less traveled. Meanwhile, we are grateful to you for being here for our journey!

Today’s episode is brought to you by Brennen's long-time friend Liberty Heise and her brand new soap company Bee Somebody. A teacher and school administrator by day, Liberty created Bee Somebody as a fun side-hustle after she started to keep bees at her home in San Antonio, Texas. 

Liberty sent me a box of bee somebody bars, and folks they have got to be the best-smelling soaps in the world. Homemade with all-natural ingredients and pure essential oils, her oatmeal and lavender soap is my absolute favorite, but I also love her prickly pear and rosemary & peppermint scents. To get your hands on these wonderful soaps, visit Bee Somebody by Liberty Heise on Etsy.
