    2.8 | The Transformative Power of Community-- It's More than a Buzzword!

    2.8 | The Transformative Power of Community-- It's More than a Buzzword!

    Brands, social media platforms, self-proclaimed gurus, and bloggers have all been chanting about community for years at this point, and it's usually leveraged as a tactic to make consumers feel like they're missing out if they don't get in on something. By buying this product, you're in the in-crowd. If you don't buy it, you're not.

    Let's step away from the buzzword factor and think about what community actually means.

    2.7 | Wondering if You're Addicted to Your Phone? with Special Guest Jason Shiers

    2.7 | Wondering if You're Addicted to Your Phone? with Special Guest Jason Shiers

    Most of us have behaviors that we default to on autopilot. Without thinking about why we're doing something, our actions become habits. From there, the consequences of those actions can vary wildly. Sometimes our habits start to feel like things that control us rather than behaviors we control, and we may even wonder if we're developing a form of addiction. This week's guest can shed some much-needed light on that. 

    Jason Shiers is a certified Psychotherapist and Certified Transformative Coach working with addictions, eating disorders, and mental health for over 2 decades. Also in recovery for 27 years, his understanding of addiction is ever-evolving.

    You can find Jason at www.wideworldcoaching.com.
