The digital age really took a swing at the perception of information and the people who provide it. It's easy to believe it's all 1) Good Information and 2) Owed to us whenever we want from whoever we want it from.

Check it out!

The 80/20 rule is considered a cultural "gem" when it comes to finding value in relationships, but it seems that the very thing we think is helping us may be doing complete opposite. In this episode we discuss the concept, its roots in the Pareto Principle and why we may have this whole thing backwards.
It can seem like as a man you’re supposed to be born confident. Lie. That you look in the mirror and like everything you see and go on about your day with an unmatched level of self-esteem. Lie again.

So today with my friend Rup we're discussing parents; the benefits of only having one, the downsides of having two and everything in between from finances to religion. Check it out!
Permission is tricky. It can be hidden in words like "inclusion" or "acknowledgment" or "approval". I think the goal is to find the balance between "permission" and guidance.

Using the power we have and building a lasting sense of confidence whether...
