    Faith It Till You Make It

    Faith It Till You Make It

    Demetrius has built his life on “faith it ‘til you make it,” and Dhayany says that he also built their
    relationship on this philosophy. Today, the two talk about what this phrase means and how we
    can use it to strengthen our businesses and relationships.
    Demetrius starts out by expressing his thankfulness to God. His faith has been structured
    around God’s principles, and this has allowed Demetrius to achieve everything that he has. He
    then shares a story about the conversation he had with God after losing his job, provoking
    Dhayany to talk about her very similar experience. We hear about how entrepreneurs need to
    make things happen for themselves and are not able to depend on anyone else.
    Dhayany begins to share some ways that we can increase our faith, starting with simply writing
    down goals. Another tip is to accept that mistakes will happen, and Demetrius adds that life is
    all about getting tested. He leads us through a test of his own and challenges us to think of a
    situation that we did not make it through. We learn that having faith in ourselves is just as
    important as having faith in the process.
    We need to control which thoughts we are focusing our attention on. Dhayany reflects on a
    time when she prayed and promised to herself that she would refuse to live her life in anxiety,
    which allowed her to leave behind the negative thoughts that were chained to it. Always trying
    to reach the next level, the couple say that any entrepreneur’s life is full of risks that are
    necessary and can be handled in a healthy way. Instead of fretting, Dhayany asserts that now
    she always believes that what she and Demetrius have set out to do will happen by the grace of
    God. She refuses to put any negative energy out into the world. Demetrius comments on
    Dhayany’s growth from his perspective.
    Dhayany recalls an old ex once telling her that their life wasn’t a fairy tale, which made her
    realize that he was not the one. Demetrius agrees that if we are around people like this, we
    need to get rid of them. To have a power couple lifestyle, we must believe in ourselves. This
    thought prompts Demetrius to tell us one of his daily prayers and discuss how to evoke
    confidence in ourselves. He explains how God snatched everything from him when he was in a
    great place in life, but that his faith allowed him to rebound and find greater success.
    Ultimately, life is like a puzzle. Dhayany declares that we don’t meet people or make mistakes
    by accident, but that these events all come together to form our desired version of life. We
    must strongly believe that we deserve what we want, and Dhayany says that April can be a
    fantastic month for us if we take on this view. Joy will manifest like never before. This is the
    positive energy that she is putting into our lives that she wants us to recite every day moving
    forward. Positive vibes only

    Secure the Bag

    Secure the Bag

     
    Dhayany and Demetrius have realized that a lot of couples don’t understand that you cannot secure a new bag successfully without getting rid of the old bag. Meaning, you cannot grow as a couple until you make all of your internal issues known to your partner. Dhayany and Demetrius want us to do this exercise with our partners tonight and guide us through how it should be approached.

    The first point discussed is Bondage, with Demetrius stating that it cripples a lot of relationships. Dhayany says that when they see one half of a couple in bondage, that person often doesn’t even realize it. She adds that another aspect they don’t realize if how bondage affects the people around them.

    The next facet is tearing down the walls. After they are torn down, Dhayany encourages learning to build with a vision which she says can be accomplished through affirmations. The two then relate this to becoming a power couple.

    The healing process is the third topic of discussion, and Demetrius begins it by talking about how it can be fun. Dhayany asserts that even though it can be fun, it’s also scary. However, she claims that if we know that our partner wants what is best for us, we need to trust the process. A discussion then begins about forgiveness.

    Dhayany and Demetrius had to go through this exercise themselves, so they reflect on what that process looked like for them. Demetrius recalls that an important part was understanding the benefits of doing it instead of just making sure it gets done.

    Going the Extra Mile

    Going the Extra Mile

     
    A concept that Dhayany and Demetrius use in their relationship as well as their business is going the extra mile. To go the extra mile, you have to prepare for it, and preparing for it takes practice. If you prepare yourself for the extra mile while everyone else is just preparing for the finish line, you’ll blow by them.

    In following this philosophy, Dhayany says that she and Demetrius prepared for their relationship in some ways that other people deemed unnecessary. We listen in on a discussion of what this preparation entailed, including the pre-marital counselling that the couple participated in. They then talk about how we will often go the extra mile for our business but not for our partner.

    Dhayany asserts that she is in business with her husband to create generational wealth, but this goes beyond just money and opportunity. The two say that we must go the extra mile to maintain our family in the same way that we would go the extra mile to provide our customers with great value. Going the extra mile goes deeper than expecting things from our partner just because we think we are entitled to them.

    To finish this episode, we are provided with a walk-through of the five steps to follow to go the extra mile: practice for it, prepare for it, understand what your partner or market likes, communicate the message effectively, and be consistent with your messaging.

    Remember, when you go the extra mile, there’s no traffic. There will be a huge benefit because not many people are willing to go there.

    Putting Your Mouth on Your Man

    Putting Your Mouth on Your Man

     
    Putting your mouth on your man is all about speaking things into his existence. If you have a man that’s trying to accomplish something, are you downplaying his goals or uplifting them? Don’t make your man feel like what he’s trying to accomplish is not the right thing to pursue. As soon as you put your mouth on him the wrong way, it could all be a wrap.

    Dhayany says that she hasn’t always struggled with what Demetrius has been doing, but has always had an opinion. At times those opinions have came off as negative, making Dhayany realize that she needed to check herself. She asserts that a woman needs to be her man’s biggest cheerleader and we are treated to some roleplay to convey this message.

    Supporting your man is sometimes easier said than done. Particularly, when you’re in a relationship with an entrepreneur and they’re trying to figure out their path. Dhayany expresses that she definitely gets that and then asks Demetrius to provide some advice for women in situations like this. He encourages focusing on progress instead of success, and Dhayany then dishes some of her own advice to male entrepreneurs.

    Next, we learn about how men can put their mouth on their woman the wrong way too. Demetrius says that men sometimes accuse their woman of not supporting them enough, thus being the driver of their failure. Even if things don’t turn out how the man wants, he still needs to applaud his woman for having his back.

    Nobody else should like your accomplishments more than your partner. Dhayany provides some final advice, including her stance that we should always encourage each other even when the situation looks a little bit bleak.

Amazing

Me (21 years old) and my Lady (19 years old) just got finished listening to season 1 and we loved it! We even learned a few important things about each other and how we can build our relationship and build WEALTH together. We both realized that we are both EAGLES!!!! (That’s my favorite episode) And we realized we are a power couple already Even though we’re FAR from where we want to be as far as success. I can NOT wait until season 2! I know we will apply everything we learned from this podcast into our real relationship going forward! Thank you so much Dhayany and Demetrius!

Love and business “is it worth it”

I liked the pod cast because it expressed the importance of honesty in business and relationships and how the success is dependent on this fact. I was encouraged by the idea of partners looking to become entrepreneurs and not let the fact that they were not pursuing the typical 9-5 job mentality.

Keep it going it’s a gold mine “in the making”.
