Hi, we're Russ and Mika Perry. We live together in Scottsdale, Arizona with our three beautiful daughters. We have devoted our lives to building a solid foundation for our family through entrepreneurship and healthy practices, with the goal of living a successful, balanced, family-focused lifestyle.
Good To Be Home is a weekly exploration of entrepreneurship, family, marriage, sobriety, and how we balance our business and life.
Let Go to Grow
This episode is all about letting go.
Just over two years ago, Mika wrote a blog post that struck a chord with a lot of people and ultimately led to the creation of this podcast.
Recent changes have inspired her to write another post on her blog that has resonated with people in an entirely different way.
In today's podcast, you'll hear why Mika has decided to leave social media completely, how that decision has improved our lives, and why we've decided to close the chapter on Good to Be Home.
Revisiting Some of Our Favorite Moments on the Podcast
We have been recording Good to Be Home for over two years now, and in that time there have been so many unforgettable moments that we have experienced in the process.
This week, we thought it would be fun to look back at some of our favorite moments from the first 100 episodes of this podcast.
On today's show, you'll hear highlights from some of our most memorable episodes, as well as some fresh perspectives about some of the most popular topics that we've discussed in the past.
Examining Your Relationship with Alcohol
Alcohol sales have soared recently, and it should come as no surprise that many people are turning to alcohol right now to help them alleviate stress.
For some of us, this can seem totally fine, but it can quickly turn into a slippery slope if we're not careful.
Today's episode is all about evaluating your relationship with alcohol, getting to the root of why people choose to drink, and how to take the necessary steps to change that relationship for the better.
Small Home Organization Projects for Quarantine
A lot of people are stuck at home right now, and feeling the pressure to spend their time in productive ways.
While this can be a great time to implement some new systems into your everyday life, we know that the idea of taking on a big project right now can be overwhelming.
This week's episode is all about the little things that we can do to make some progress toward our goals.
These are small projects that can help you get organized, and feel a little bit better about the space that you're in
How Pain Can Help Us Grow
The past several weeks have been full of upheaval and uncertainty for so many of us.
One thing that we do know for certain is that quarantine and social distancing have brought about a lot of pain for people of all walks of life.
With so many of us experiencing some painful circumstances at the moment, we wanted to take some time today to talk about pain.
In today's episode, we are talking about the purpose of pain, why we naturally try to avoid it, and how painful experiences can help us grow.
Intermittent Media Fasting
Russ recently published an essay to his mailing list about something he likes to call Intermittent Media Fasting.
It's based on the practice of Intermittent Fasting, which is all about reducing your caloric intake to certain parts of the day.
In today's episode, you'll hear all about what Intermittent Media Fasting is, why it's important to limit our media consumption, and how you can build your own Intermittent Media Fasting schedule.
