After thirty years as a psychotherapist, entrepreneur and business consultant, Rick Breden, CEO of Behavioral Essentials, realized that many of the issues that impact work performance aren't related to work at all- Depression, anxiety, taking care of aging parents, chemical dependency, breast cancer, raising children, conflict- actually, everything that happens outside of work can have a huge impact on how you feel and perform at work. Our simple mission is to "help a lot of people." On Natural Tendencies we tackle the tough stuff with real people, and provide them with a place to process, learn and grow. We also provide practices and support materials that can help you overcome, or at least better manage, whatever is holding you back. Join Rick as he guides people through issues we all face, and hopefully learn something that brings more joy and productivity into your home and work life.

I love the truth and realness behind this, hearing the stories of interesting people who have undergone personal and professional struggles. As unique as the stories are, I found several moments to be very relatable... and the analysis of those situations to be applicable to myself and probably many others. Worth a listen!
It took a lot of courage for our friend Matt to be the first in our new podcast series and I think this episode kicks off just right.
I want to thank everyone for the hard work and dedication put forward to make this dream of "helping a lot of people" a reality.
