    762: Communication Methods by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How To Communicate Effectively

    Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle shares different methods of communication.

    Episode 762: Communication Methods by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How To Communicate Effectively

    Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.
    Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else.
    He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook.

    761: How to Stop Being Mean to Yourself by Rose Lounsbury on Self-Compassion & Being Kind To Yourself

    Rose Lounsbury teaches us how to stop being mean to ourselves.

    Episode 761: How to Stop Being Mean to Yourself by Rose Lounsbury on Self-Compassion & Being Kind To Yourself

    Rose Lounsbury is a keynote speaker, Amazon bestselling author, simplicity coach, and still-sane mom of triplets. (Yes, you heard that right!) She helps overwhelmed people create open spaces in their homes, workspaces, and more importantly–their minds–by letting go of the excess stuff that gets in the way. Rose started her own simplicity journey in 2012, after getting fed up with spending all of her free time dealing with my stuff. As she slowly let go of everything that didn’t matter to her, she discovered some amazing things: free time, peace of mind, & clarity. Rose became a simplicity coach to help others do the same thing.

Kaila D. Q. ,

Spotify ad is so annoying

I love the actual articles and the narrator’s voice. Def give a listen if you’re debating.

My 1 nitpick that’s keeping this from being 5 stars: The Spotify ads

The reoccurring Spotify ads are super annoying because they keep attempting to sell me on paying for Spotify’s premium download feature. Apple podcasts lets me download episodes for free.

Does the script writer realize that what they’re advertising makes no sense to the Apple demographic/customer base? Maybe they could add some other reason for switching to Spotify or elaborate on why Spotify’s premium download feature is superior, but the current reason is nonsensical where it’s left.
