    270. Not made to DO IT ALL - Season 2 Finale

    270. Not made to DO IT ALL - Season 2 Finale

    Welcome to the Challenge Yo Self Season 2 finale. Sorry not sorry… we are taking a long break. We have decided to go on hiatus to focus on various individual projects. Perhaps you are in a season of transition too.

    Don't fret, We have left you with a plethora of free podcasts, wisdom and information and we hope you take full advantage of these resources.

    We want to end this season by challenging the idea that we were meant to do it all. No one can or should try to do it all. So with that, define what your "All" looks like and do it!


    Thank you for all of your support and love, we look forward to hearing from you soon directly!

    Challenge Yo Self!

    Joy and Ashley

    267. Cussing Love!

    267. Cussing Love!

    NEW EPISODE! Do you remember those classic reality shows: Real Housewives of...., Love and Hip Hop, or maybe even Love Island for those of you who are new to reality relationship shows. Looking back, do you ever remember seeing healthy relationships? Or even calm conversations at that? Well there was no lack of yelling and fighting but to us this is not what relationships should be. Come along on this journey as Ashley and Joy discuss the realities of the ugly cussing love and the alternatives that will help you keep your peace. Jump in as we talk more in this season of Relationships, Passions and Obsessions.

    Challenge: Where do you need to make peace in your life? Do you need to let some relationships go? Or have hard conversations?

    Leave us a voice message or email to let us know what you noticed about yourself.

    The theme this season..... is RPO pronounced "REE-PO" (Relationships, Passions, Obsessions).

    This season the Challenge Yourself will encourage, empower, and motivate you through the often mysterious, mesmerizing, and sometimes misleading world of relationships - relationships with yourself, relationships with others and intimate relationships. Whether talking about our own personal relationships and lessons or gaining perspective from the line up of highly-esteemed special guests, you will have the opportunity to become empowered with INTENTION in a world of "Whatever" and "YOLO".

Amazing Podcast!!

It’s refreshing to hear confident women come together and support one another while providing the very gems we need to navigate this life. As a 20 something year old, I find this podcast extremely thought provoking. I’ve been challenged to better myself and live my life on my terms. What more can you ask for in a podcast? Absolutely love it! Thank you for this ❤️
