    Once I discovered life coaching, everything changed. My mind was transformed from one I was exhausted to live in, to one that I love creating my life with.
    I want this for you too.
    I absolutely LOVE working with other sixes and helping them become strong decision makers, tame their anxiety and stop spinning in self doubt. Sixes are the absolute best number in the Enneagram. So many of us just don’t know it yet because we are spinning in average levels which feels TERRIBLE!

    1518 D&S: "Incredulous Strick" Makes an appearance

    Strickland can get worked up, we've heard that before, but he's in rare form today. What else would you expect when somebody tried to kill his favorite presidential candidate...but missed?

    1516 D&S Sign $8 Million Deal with Amazon

    1516 D&S Sign $8 Million Deal with Amazon

    $8 million deal with Amazon? Damn, that's some clickbait if I ever saw it. Amazon wouldn't pay those guys $80.00 even if they returned a $100.00 microphone! One bit of good news today, at least they get to the voicemails fairly early.

    1514 D&S: Happy Independence Day Bonus!

    1514 D&S: Happy Independence Day Bonus!

    That's right, we're getting the show out EARLY this week as a bonus to celebrate 248 years of independence for the United States of 'Murica. After the Supreme Court rulings this week, who knows how long we'll be around. They've taken away women's rights, given the President immunity to do whatever the hell he wants, and have decided that Congress and unelected federal judges know more than the trained professional engineers, doctors, and scientists who run federal regulatory agencies. Makes total sense to me...That is if you're a rich white guy trying to take over the country. C'est la vie, is Canada still open?

Emotionally Intelligent Host Interviewing on Emotional Intelligence

Doug really stays focused on the guest, but it’s more than that. He improvises questions that get into where the guest is coming from and digs into what human needs drive the guest’s point of view. That’s next-level podcasting.
