    Ep 24: Feelings, Fluffers, and Forever Forward

    Ep 24: Feelings, Fluffers, and Forever Forward

    We're overdue for a check-in on our hosts, and how they're preparing for a slow re-entry into a world that's essentially unrecognizable from what we knew two months ago. Back at the onset of coronavirus, everything was so uncertain... and not much has really changed. While everyone seems to be an authority, no-one really knows anything, right? Information is in constant conflict - which has led to a lot of divisiveness and vitriol. But despite all of this, Shannon's entering Phase 1 with Urban Waxx in Eugene, and Elisha has remotely built a brand new business from scratch in just two weeks, nbd. Tune in to get the lowdown on their progress, what they've learned about themselves during quarantine, and how geography plays such a significant role in shaping your belief system. We also want your suggestions on future topics of discussion, so don't be shy about sending a DM and heading to Apple for aa lil' podcast feedback (WE LIVE FOR IT). Lastly, we have hugggeee book giveaway on the horizon, and trust us, you'll wanna be here for it!

    Ep 23: Sex & Cigarettes (feat. Heidi Busche)

    Ep 23: Sex & Cigarettes (feat. Heidi Busche)

    Ready for some honest, vulnerable real talk on sex and relationships? Thought as much. We've hooked up with Heidi Busche, author of Relationship Ready: How I Stopped F*****g Randos and Started Cupcaking My Soulmate. Heidi shares her struggles with sobriety, the drawbacks of being a "guy's girl", and details the wreckage of countless intimate encounters gone awry due to her deep feelings of unworthiness - until she found the tools to switch up her game. Join Elisha, Shannon, and Heidi (if that IS their real names) on this nostalgic dip into the ground zero of past relationships: how different personality types process conflict, how to honestly and clearly navigate couple arguments without escalation, and how to be authentic in ALL of your relationships. We reckon that this is one of those episodes all women can relate to and benefit from, no matter your background or history. Buckle up, losers in love - Heidi's here to help!

    Ep 22: The Potato or the Egg (feat. Kris Ward)

    Ep 22: The Potato or the Egg (feat. Kris Ward)

    We're not done checking in on fellow entrepreneurs to see how they're riding the 'ronacoaster - mostly to find out how their business practices have adapted to our new normal. And we've found that all of them, without exception, are "amp(ing) up their game for when the lights go back on." In this episode, Shannon and Elisha are tickled to chat with Kris Ward, authority in productivity and building your business by building your team, podcast host, author of Win the Hour, Win the Day, "recovering rushaholic", and super polite (though not to be messed with) Canadian. After a 2 year sabbatical to provide end of life care for her terminally ill husband, Kris returned to her business to find it had not only survived without her, but thrived, due to a structured team plan she'd prophetically set into motion years earlier. Now, she teaches those struggling with their own growing business how to leverage their bandwidth, the crucial importance of strategy and training, and how entrepreneurs can double their income while taking triple their time off. Seem impossible? It's actually 100% doable, and this episode is the inspirational kick in the butt we all needed to work smart rather than hard.

    Ep 21: COVID Psychosis

    Ep 21: COVID Psychosis

    Scene: You're feeling sad, or in a crappy mood. Even though you're not really feeling it, you talk to a partner or friend about it. Suddenly, you feel a million times better. That's Real Talk | Real Change. Our quarantined hosts shoot the shit over "the COVID psychosis," otherwise known as "Elisha cackles her way through describing her dubious life choices." Sit down with your podcast besties as they revisit boric acid suppositories and the world's best vibrator, how spending all of this time cooped up with partners and kids can prompt a free fall into paranoia over mystery knickers, the trauma echoes of being cheated on, and how parenting can sometimes feel a little bit... bipolar. Yep, the girls have snapped, and it's freaking hilarious. We wanna hear your bananas COVID psychosis moments, too, so 'fess up, because it always feels better to talk about it (and lord knows we could all use a laugh).
    P.S. We live for your feedback and 5 star reviews, so take a break from staring at the wall or murdering your sourdough starter and head to Apple to give us some love!

    Ep 20: The COVID-19 Culture Club (feat. Galen Emanuele)

    Ep 20: The COVID-19 Culture Club (feat. Galen Emanuele)

    Settle in for our longest episode yet - and that's because our guest, Galen Emanuele, is such an enigmatic, passionate speaker (and Elisha and Shannon just didn't want to quit). Galen comes from a creative background of improvisational theatre, and paired with his sharp analytical mind, magic happens. He helps companies "create living, breathing intentional cultures", by ditching punitive leadership, and crafting workspaces run on positivity, accountability, and emotional intelligence. If you're struggling with low workplace morale, as a leader or as an employee, this episode is gonna shake the hell out of your perspective. Learn how companies can use this "downtime" to strip away the b******t and create a plan for workplace success...and we're not just talking about an office pizza party on Fridays. What do you want your business to look like on the other side of COVID-19? Here's your first step!

    Ep 19: Running Up That Hill (feat. Carla Singleton-Thompson)

    Ep 19: Running Up That Hill (feat. Carla Singleton-Thompson)

    Think back to the RTRC episode where Elisha & Shannon held a giveaway of the books that were most influential to them at the time. Fast forward to today, where we finally get to meet the winner of those books, Carla, a self described bookworm, RTRC superfan, and voracious self help connoisseur. Inheriting her love of reading from her mother, who used books as a form of escapism and "travel" from farm life, Carla explains how both books and her stint in the Army have honed her skills in leadership and adaptability to life's challenges. She and our hosts discuss how, during quarantine, our perspectives shift from day to day, and that it's a choice to stay stuck when you can always reinvent yourself. You'll love Carla's life story and attitude, plus she drops her current Top 5 favorite books that are influencing her at this time (heads up: those titles are gonna be our next giveaway!).
