    Personal Growth Junkie with Jason Kendrick

    Personal Growth Junkie with Jason Kendrick

    Jason Kendrick is a published author, speaker, NLP Practitioner, and Reiki Master. 
    For twenty years, Jason has been a personal growth junkie and he believes that to know something, is to teach it.  Therefore, he has made it his mission to redefine the old masculine paradigm and recreate a new healthier father/son reinforce model.
    We dive deep into his life growing up connecting with the feminine so much more than his masculine role models.  Later in life, he found that he was seeking the approval and was a traditional "nice guy"!  I can completely relate to this thinking as I have been able to identify with "Nice Guy" Syndrome in my life as well!

    Your Strengths with Lisa Foster

    Your Strengths with Lisa Foster

    Lisa Foster, owner of Parillume, helps survivors of sexual assault shine from their original design and thrive!  She speaks nationally, hosts events in Denver, and works with individuals, couples, and groups to facilitate their growth.  We wanted to pick her brain on how she uses tools like The Enneagram, Meyers-Briggs, and Strengths Finder to help her community grow to shine.
    Lisa's journey in her own words, "My own Hero’s Journey began decades ago when I confronted my father about sexually abusing me. As I began to heal, I noticed something: The shame-based lens of our culture condemned me to a lifetime in recovery as a “survivor.” But I was determined to pioneer a path beyond survival, to a life without limits."

    Boundaries and Oversharing with Nick Mancini

    Boundaries and Oversharing with Nick Mancini

    It was a pleasure to connect with Nick Mancini, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist  
    Nick took the time to discuss relationships, intimacy, and core values to share his expertise with you.  What resonated with me most from our podcast interview was how to foster curiosity within ourselves so that we can continue to grow and show up as authentically as possible when dating.  His goal with clients is to simplify skills with a systematic approach from the very first phone consultation.
    Nick plays multiple roles in his clients' lives, such as coach, cheerleader, and an accountability partner.  Whether his clients wish to immediately date after a break up or divorce, or they would like to slow down, he will meet them where they are at to define their values and purpose.

If you want to get real

I resonate with what Dave says on so many levels! He and his killer guests have helped me continue to dive deeper into understanding my relationship with myself, how it has impacted my relationships with others, and how to harness that knowledge for the better in my future relationships. Listen if you’re ready to get real with yourself.

Changed my life

The approach to dating, and life in general, that Dave has has shaped my life in ways I didn’t think possible. Still growing and learning but I think of what he had discussed at least once a day and has made me feel better about my decisions and has empowered me to put ME first. There’s a topic for everyone here and even if it doesn’t resonate with you at the time, who knows? Maybe one day we will find ourselves in that spot, or our partner! And we could definitely use his guidance which has been proven to help, at least in my personal experience, I am glad I stumble upon him and this experience.
