Why Beating Addiction is Not About Quitting

This week on the IGNTD Recovery podcast, I let you in on some of the secrets that separate the IGNTD Recovery method from other methods of recovery from addiction. The focus that everybody puts on quitting (or on abstinence) is actually causing more failure than success. It’s causing more addicts to lie, overdose, relapse, and no longer continue to seek a course of treatment. The number one piece that makes IGNTD Recovery different is that it doesn’t require quitting — because quitting is...


Taking off layers and getting clean

Today we’re talking about rituals, inspired by our recent birthday-filled weekend getaway. Sometimes the connection between you and your partner can be stifled with the addition of other little humans that need attention. So recently, we had to shed some layers back, rejuvenate, and cleanse. Speaking of, we have Lan Belinky on the show today to talk about another type of ritual (that involves lots of rejuvenation and cleansing): skin care! Lan serves as the General Manager and sits on...

How to work with your partner without killing them, or your business
