In this week’s podcast, seven RCT students, who are halfway through the course, share their personal experiences and offer insight about their journeys in becoming a relationship coach.

I asked them some questions on how the RCT course has helped them with their current relationships and parenting, how it influenced their self-growth and what their aspirations are after they finish the course and become relationship coaches.
We got into a very candid conversation that you do not want to miss. Here’s one of the other questions I asked them:

Nothing Else Out There As Useful as This Podcast
Jason, thank you for all of these podcasts and your continued work to help us do better in relationships. I am thankful for these free and highly educational talks that are immediately understandable and relatable. What a gift you are, thank you. Most recently, I appreciate episode 323 with your wife in which you outline the four questions that couples can examine about the kind of relationship they want to share. Again, you guys are the best help out there.
I’m a few episodes in and am enjoying the topics and info that Jayson covers, particularly the episode with Michael Gurian!
I’m thoroughly enjoying the experts and discussions on this podcast. I’m so grateful for the pointers on parenting, being a better communicator at work, and how to be healthier in relationships. One of my favorite guests was the angry therapist. So real! This is benefitting me as a teacher of middle school students and as a single mom of a little boy. You give me hope that I can try my best to provide a great example to him, though his dad is not very involved.
