    How to Be a Power Couple - Entrepreneurship 101 with Nichole Lynel and Tony Robinson

    How to Be a Power Couple - Entrepreneurship 101 with Nichole Lynel and Tony Robinson

    We are often told you have to sacrifice your career or slow down to make room for a relationship and that it’s impossible to balance both (queue Hollywood movies showing unhappy, unfulfilled couples that work too hard and don’t have enough time for their relationships).
     
    Honestly I think it can be challenging… BUT, what if you find your person, and they are equally ambitious and can actually help support you and your career? Well, get ready to meet a couple that has done just that.
     
    Nichole is a fashion designer with her own label as well as a creative director, author and motivational speaker. Tony Robinson, aka The Closer (find out what that’s all about in this episode), transferred his success in real estate into creating powerful, wealth-generating courses for all called Rona Proof. He’s challenging the concept that only wealthy people can get into real estate, and Nichole is showing Black women that they can be their own boss and create the brand of their dreams.
     
    I hope you’re as inspired by their love story and the way they support one another's thriving businesses and ambitions in a non competitive loving way.
     
    You can find Nichole at @nicholelynel on IG/Tiktok, her brand at @nlthelabel, and her shop at @shopnicholelynel
     
    Tony is on IG at @tonythecloser_ @ronaproof and Tiktok at @tonythecloserofficial

    Scheana Shay Gets Real on the Struggles of Motherhood w/ Brock Davies

    Scheana Shay Gets Real on the Struggles of Motherhood w/ Brock Davies

    Get ready for all the feels! We are so grateful that Scheana and her new husband, Brock, were willing to get so vulnerable with us. Maybe it’s because they’re used to having the whole world watch them on Vanderpump rules - but we actually feel like they know this conversation could help others not think love, relationships and parenthood has to be perfect.
     
    The highlight of this episode is when Scheana admits sometimes she doesn’t feel like a good enough Mom and that had Iskra tearing up because it’s so relatable and yet there’s so much shame around saying it.
     
    Excited for you to listen and let us know in the reviews your thoughts!
     
    Check out Scheana's podcast and follow @Scheana & @brock__davies for more Scheananigans.
     
    Thank you so much for downloading, your support means the world - for more of us follow @iskra and @philipapayne on IG and TikTok.

    Surviving the 7-Year Itch with MTV OGs, Amber & Ethan Diamond

    Surviving the 7-Year Itch with MTV OGs, Amber & Ethan Diamond

    Our first ever Coupleish guests are our friends, Amber and Ethan, who met 9 years ago on the first season of MTV's “Are You The One?”. Then, Ethan surprised Amber on the reunion show by proposing, and fast forward - they now have two beautiful daughters and live here in Austin, Texas. We are so grateful to know them because they truly are the most kind, loving family and we can’t wait to share this episode with you.

    We not only talk about the reality of reality TV and the manipulative ways they produce and edit the show, but the near death experience that changed Ethan’s life and how they raise their daughters to respect and cherish their Taiwanese and American heritage.

    You can find Amber, Ethan and their adorable family on IG https://www.instagram.com/amberleediamond/

    https://www.instagram.com/ethan.g.diamond/

    And follow for more of our couples content on TikTok + IG @iskra & @philipapayne

    Can’t wait to hear what you think of the episode, see you next week!

    And if you have a burning question or a jaw dropping confessional you’d like to keep anonymous drop us a voice message at www.speakpipe.com/coupleish
