We’re Jason and Caroline Zook, a husband and wife team running two businesses together and trying to live out our version of a good life in the process. In this business podcast, we share with you advice and conversations that will help you grow your online business with more intention, creativity, and keep you rooted in your own values as you pursue your goals.
114 - How can we make this easier?
The mantra this week in our household is, “how can we make this easier?” There are so many decisions being made as we’re just 4 weeks away from moving to Europe!
113 - Embrace the chaos
What happens when you’re getting ready to completely uproot your comfortable lives to become full-time travelers? CHAOS. Let’s chat about how we’re embracing that chaos this week.
112 - We've entered... the stressful season! (2022 travel update)
The departure date for our year of travel is QUICKLY approaching and we’ve left the “Excited Season” and moved into the “Stressful Season” of our trip. We don’t want this episode to come off like complaining as we know being able to go on this trip is an amazing privilege but we did want to share the reality of feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
111 - How long could you survive in the wilderness?
Hello, friends! This week we’re sharing a handful of random/silly questions as it’s Thanksgiving week and wanted to do something a bit more light-hearted.
110 - You are not a machine
Our capitalistic culture is driven by efficiency and productivity. It’s extremely easy to feel guilty when you notice you aren’t working “enough” or as much as other people. We want to help shift our collective mindset in this episode. You are not a machine, dear listener.
109 - No right way to transition from clients
Many people want to tell you making the transition from working with clients to selling digital products (or anything else besides clients) is as easy as 1-2-3. However, we want to acknowledge it’s NOT that easy and it’s okay if it takes you longer to make the leap.

Be prepared to laugh while learning how to run an intentional biz
Jason and Caroline help provide my husband and I the energy we need to continue trying to grow and take over my parents online businesses. We love listening to their advice and putting their ideas to work!
For the overwhelmed or underwhelmed entrepreneur
Well, all of the 5 out of 5 stars reviews I think says it all. I have been listening to Jason and Caroline obsessively now for days, weeks. They are a perfect mix and balance of business advice and guidance, with huge splashes of humor, plus realness and honesty mixed in. They are transparent about their business financials and what they’re presently trying to figure out or how far they’ve come. And while they’re very successful in my book, you don’t feel like they’re far off bajillionaires that you just can’t relate to. Their business model is SO generous I feel that they are truly activist minded at heart. They are so giving and it comes through in their charitable giving but also in talking about race and social justice and working on themselves kind of way. I love their relationship as a couple and as business partners. It’s full of respect, thoughtfulness and tons of laughs and giggles. Thank you both for all your hard work and giving to us newbie entrepreneurs!
