Ep 55: Scheduling Social Media like a Boss

Scheduling instagram posts has helped our business tremendously, and these tips work for instagram or any social media. You can even modify it for blogging or even podcasting! With this, we've had richer content on social media, leading to increased interactions with clients, and therefore more bookings. It also saves us a ton of time in the long haul, especially now that instagram allows auto posting! This method also allows for easy outsourcing. I have someone do steps 4, 5, and 6 for me...

Ep 53: Side Hustle Ideas

There are some pretty terrible lists of side hustles on the internet. For me, a big attraction to a side hustle is that it can be on the side... minimal back end work, but to make a quick buck. There are a lot of reasons why someone might want a side hustle- whether it's to turn it into full time, or its to fund your full time hustle dream, or just to make some quick cash for vacation. Today we're discussing our favorites and what to look for in a side hustle. CreditLoan.com did a survey...

Here are some facts on Jon: Jon Chalden has been playing professionally for over 35 years. After graduating from the nationally-recognized...


Ep 51: Travel on a Whim with Hazel Fowler

One of the most attractive things about owning your own business is the flexibility in your schedule. Last week when the governor gave us a mandatory evacuation for a hurricane, we took it as a chance to go to New York City! That's definitely something we weren't able to do before when we had traditional jobs. Today we're going to share how we did it, the finances behind a last minute vacation, and we're interviewing our daughter, Hazel, about it as well. Here's a link to the blog post we...


Ep 50(!!!!): Chasing a Big Dream with Ed Bley

We're celebrating pretty hardcore about hitting 50 episodes! Today we're doing a little trivia about the 1950s and making Josh guess all the answers... and the 5th question is quite surprising. We also chat about what's new at the end of todays episode. Let's just say we're highlighting a big milestone for Josh, and a terrible milestone for myself. Today’s guest, is Ed Bley, and unless your one of Josh's bourbon pals listening to this, you probably have no idea who I’m talking about. And...

Ep 47: Unscripted, Working Together

With 'working from home' becoming a realistic life for many people these days, we decided to strip down the walls and throw our plans out the window to share some overly real talk about life and marriage while working together. What's New: Here's the episode of Planet Money Susan was talking about! Peak Sand is the title.


Ep 46: Part 2- How to Work the Room

If you haven't listened to the first part of this episode, click here to catch up! Now last week, we talked about communication, but today we're going to talk about the confidence piece. We said on our last episode that you can have the gift of gab beyond anyone you know, but if you aren't confident, people won't trust you. In fact, they'll usually doubt you. And you can have all the confidence in the world but if you can't communicate effectively, you may come off as cocky or arrogant, or...


Ep 45: How to Work the Room (Part 1)

Josh is the kind of guy that can walk into a room and be friends with everyone by the end of a party. It's an awesome skill to have, and here are some of his not-s0-secret insights! A lot of this is more about how than what. 1.) Genuinely care about the interest of other people. 2.) Always start with a smile and warm greeting. 3.) The best way to start things off is by asking a question. Beyond small talk. Ask something personal. 4.) Close the conversation before moving on. 5.) Make and...

Ep 42: Our Big Fat Family Vacation

We just took 3 weeks off for a family road trip around the southeast! That's something we never thought possible a few years ago.

You’ve Been Punked!

Just kidding. We had some technical difficulties with this week's episode, so we found it very fitting to re-broadcast one of our favorite episodes to date: Ep 24: Vacation... When You Love to Work. Why share this episode? Because we're on vacation right now, and implementing all of these methods, except #4! We did say #4 wasn't for everyone, and really that's because it's not for us at this stage. But for some people it is their favorite part! —— Connect with us for access to more resources...


Ep 40: “Can I Have a Discount?”

How many times do you get asked, "Do you offer discounts?" If you are like us, it is nearly constant. A few guiding principles can really help navigate the minefield of discounts. Decide at the outset what you will do so you have an answer when you get asked...and you will. The way we see it, giving back is part of business BUT we don't give a percentage discount to specific groups, because there are so many people that are worthy or a discount, and we don't want to get into picking and...


Ep 39: Taking 3 Months off of Your Business

We thought it was impossible. I couldn't even take a week off before this. 2017 we adopted our son. With Hazel we had limited maternity/paternity leave and it was something that we regretted. So if we're our own business owners, we definitely needed to make this happen. Two months for adoption, one month for surgery. It's possible! Here's how we took 3 months off of our business... -We saved $$$$ ahead of time-- importance of saving because you don't know when an emergency will make you take...


Ep 38: Producing Income Vs Online Engagement

It doesn't quite matter how many followers you have unless you can utilize them. On the flipside, you can not have many followers but have a great successful income producing business. Instagram + Facebook presence doesn't necessarily equal sales. Popular is cool but it doesn't pay the bills, and I've never been good at being popular. ------ Connect with us for access to more resources about business + life!

Ep 37: Why Business Cards?

Honestly, I loathe business cards, but Josh loves them. I pitch them in the trash as soon as I can. Josh keeps them forever and refers back to them. But it doesn't matter what we think-- it matters about who we're talking to and who we're handing them to. What are they going to do with it after we leave, and what is the best way to use business cards for impact in our business? There are two parts today: First we talk about why on earth business cards are needed in the digital age. Then...
