Tammy Hill is a licensed marriage and family therapist, sex therapist and a professor for the School of Family Life at Brigham Young University.

    We talked about common stumbling blocks parents face when addressing these issues, advice for teaching young children, older children, teens and young adults about sex and money and concepts that are often overlooked. The goal for this episode is to help you feel empowered to be your children's best resource for information about topics that are hard to address.

    We hope this will be helpful to those of you who are parents at any stage. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions that come up for you as you listen to this interview.

Entrepreneurship and love advice that helps

Monica has done a wonderful job of curating experts who know what kind of challenges entrepreneurs face in their love. Listening reminds me that I’m not alone and that there is always hope when I’m willing to turn some attention to my marriage.
