    135: Finding Your People

    135: Finding Your People

    Finding your people is a continuous, evolving process. 


     


    In this episode, Jill and Nick paint a clear picture on how they define their “kind of people."  Making friends, keeping friends, letting go of friends can be a complex and somewhat challenging experience. Hopefully this honest conversation helps simplify the chaos around finding the “just right” (and uplifting as hell) community for you!

    134: Finding Ways to Create More Time

    134: Finding Ways to Create More Time

    Time is the most precious, non-refundable gift we will ever receive.


     


    In this episode, Jill and Nick chat about all the ways they have changed their lives in order to have MORE TIME. More time as a couple, time with Lucille, time as a family, time to be, to rest, to explore, and to create. They’ve realized that the less they own, the less pressure they feel to spend time doing things that don’t light them up.

Love them!

I’ve just recently gotten into podcasts and spent a whole day searching for podcasts that resonated with me. By far, this podcast is most applicable to my life! I love the discussions and that it doesn’t seem too scripted. It sounds like I’m just listening in on an honest conversation that I get so mich useful information from. Thank you for taking the time to make the episodes! Keep it up.
