    Episode 127: SEXY MONEY with Mel O

    This week on Bringing Intimacy Back, host Dr. April and co-host Coach Kay welcomes Mel O discussing SEXY MONEY!

    “A boss screamin’ in my ear about who I’m supposed to be Get a 3-piece Wall Street smile and son you’ll look just like me” Youth Gone Wild -Skid Row I want to be myself in an industry confined by stuffed suits, confusing jargon and general lameness. I want financial literacy to come to the many and close the gap between the 99% and the 1%, and I want to drop some F bombs while I do it. Is that so bad? SO, I wrote a book (Finances the Other F Word-Another F Word to love, find it on Amazon) and started this podcast under the same name. Despite the fact I have a background in media I was not onboard with the podcasting gig until Stormie called me and basically forced me to do one. I invited him and another friend, Zoe, along to make it happen. That being said, we kick ass and it reminds me how much I missed the media sector. Welcome home Mel. I love money, I love my money, and I love your money, and I want you to have more of it. The first step of this is to understand it, and I want to bring financial literacy to the masses in a way that doesn’t bore you or speak over your heads. I love music, all music with few exceptions. You, the creative types who make the music I love, I want to help you! The music business is a BUSINESS, and you need to have a basic knowledge of the ins and outs of money if you are going to survive, even if you self-release. So, listen to this podcast, and subscribe, and rate and review us. Quite frankly, LOVE US. We love you and we bust our asses, (well, not Stormie so much), to give you the information you need and deserve. You are a Rockstar and I am your advisor, so let’s f*****g rock n roll! Rock On- Mel O CFP www.hotmoonfinancial.com

If you like what you hear, rate our content and leave us a review on any social media platform you listen to us. Andre has been studying people his entire life. Over a decade ago, he was compelled to teach his findings and knowledge to the masses for they kept asking him “why things seemed to be so hard or confusing” when dealing with relationships, people and life. Since his studies and understandings of Relationships dynamics is so vast, Andre’s knowledge expands across all types of subjects such as: - Love/Life relationships with Men and Women, Regardless of gender and/or orientation) - Child Rearing (Married or single), - Workplace dynamic negotiations - Negotiating Wants and Needs - Effective Communication Strategies. Communication Tools and so on. Often, relationships can seem to be a power struggle. The magic is to be fully aware of the energy mechanism in place in these dynamics and learn to negotiate the terms to reduce power friction. This truly is the basis of Andre’s work. Married for over two decades and proud parent of two teens, Andre’s expertise spans not only over his knowledge studies, research and expertise as a Coach, Teacher, Educator, Mentor and public Speaker, but also over his actual life’s experience in dating, love, parenting and business.
