Forget Compatibility! Great Relationships Require Intentionality - with Dr. Joli Hamilton - Part 2 Everyone wants to find someone they're compatible with, but what if we're looking at this the wrong way? Dr. Joli Hamilton is our guest for part two of this conversation. Do opposites really attract? Is it true that we create our compatibility? And if so, how does intentionality play a role? The truth is, we are different. And when you decide that being different is not only okay but preferred, you'll unlock another dimension in your relationship. You can't force your partner to be the same as you. Love is about flourishing and growing and being who you were meant to be. Sadly, Dr. Hamilton reminds us, that often the things you wish you could project on your partner or spouse are the things you wish you could own about your own life. That is a deep revelation! What have you been disowning about yourself that you need to reclaim? Own it. Don't ask your partner to take on these things. High Functioning Couples Joli and I also discussed the roles in high functioning couples. Often, power struggles occur because of a lack of intentionality in conversations and structure. “Some people think relationships should be really easy or really hard, and these two people are usually married to each other,” says Dr. Hamilton. That's going on Instagram today! Have a Vision for Your Marriage/Relationship The Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint” (Proverbs 29:18). Having a vision (or purpose statement, as Joli calls it), is vital to a healthy relationship. Without knowing where you're headed, you're bound to run around in circles, get frustrated, and ultimately “cast off restraint.” Another way to say this is that you'll lose the fight for your relationship. You might stay together, but you'll be distant at best. So, create a purpose or vision statement today. At the end of the day, when you're ready to up-level your relationship, all it takes is deciding. “Love is a learnable skillset,” Joli says. Stop groping around in the dark and decide to create compatibility by intentionality. Be sure to listen to the full episode by clicking the episode link.

It has been said that intentionality is one key to success.Every day we do so much out of sheer habit. If we took the time to go back and analyze our choices, we might be surprised by how many were not entirely intentional decisions. We'll find that most decisions were the result of choices derived out of convenience. We didn't take the time to thoroughly process or develop a best practice for thinking, evaluating, and choosing. Instead, our choices are justified by knee-jerk reactions or our intuition.When we make decisions, they should be made with our eyes on the goal or desired outcome. We should place deliberateness and intentionality at the forefront of decision-making.Let's get back to basics by allowing ourselves to visualize our goals and desired outcome and think through the steps we must take to achieve them. Then execute by taking the first step.One last bit of advice; if you are having trouble deciding what you truly want: determine what you don't wish to and be deliberate about that.Listen, Get Inspired, and Level Up.
Is your life filled with purpose and intentionality? If you are like most people, it's not. My guest today is Alex Bunyan who has spent his working career interviewing and assessing thousands of professionals. That work has taught him that the majority of even the most successful people are floating adrift in their professional lives. Alex became an executive coach to help leaders find clarity and purpose so they can realize their true potential and live an intentional life. You won't want to miss Alex's golden nuggets of wisdom that he dishes out on this episode of Solopreneur Money. Grab your AirPods and be prepared to dig deep when you press play. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Alex's story [2:12] How Alex lost his way and found it again [22:41] The biggest challenge in building Alex's business [30:37] The role that purpose plays in your life [36:45] The role that intentionality plays in your life [46:45] The money questions [51:07] Alex Bunyan bet on himself to pursue a life of purpose Alex Bunyan grew up as the son of an RCMP officer in Canada. His upbringing was similar to the typical Army Brat lifestyle--moving every 2 years, always being the new kid, and constantly the outsider. While It may not have been easy to grow up in small, rural communities as the son of the local cop, Alex's childhood taught him how to adjust to new situations and how to read people. Alex always thought he would become a high school English teacher, but a leadership opportunity in retail came along first and provided him with great money, plenty of freedom, and a wealth of learning opportunities. When Alex was let go in a restructuring event at the bank he worked at, he chose to take the opportunity to gain clarity and find his purpose. When he looked deep into himself he realized that becoming a leadership and career coach was the best way for him to live an intentional life. Are you sure you are following your passion? Many solopreneurs have heard the advice “follow your passion,” but this advice is often misunderstood and poorly executed. This is because people fail to dig in and explore what their true purpose is. As a coach, Alex helps others explore this question and tease out their own answers. It is important not to confuse your job title with your passion. Your passion is about more than what you do for a living. Passions live beneath the functions of your work. Have you explored what motivates and inspires you? Are you living a purpose-filled life? The next step is to get intentional After you discover your true purpose it is important to take deliberate steps to live a purpose-filled life. This is where intentionality comes in. Intentionality is the follow-through that comes after finding your true purpose. Acting on the steps you need to take to structure your life around your purpose is being intentional. Have you thought about whether your life and business are in line with your purpose? Do you live an intentional life? Listen to this insightful interview with Alex Bunyan to hear how you can ensure that you create an intentional business and live out your purpose.

This conversation was recorded as part of Work Shouldn't Suck's https://www.workshouldntsuck.co/ethical-reopening-summit-2021 (Ethical Re-Opening Summit) that took place on April 27, 2021.

Conferences that traditionally attracted hundreds or thousands of in-person attendees shifted to online offerings. As we consider how to reopen our workplaces, how can we do that in intentional ways that center our impact on planet and people?

Have you been investing in fossil fuels and climate change without realizing it?Alex Wright-Gladstein, Founder, and CEO of Sphere, sits with A.J. Lawrence to discuss how the investment holdings of most people's 401(k)s support the financing of fossil fuels. They also talk about her journey in climate change and sustainability, transitioning from being CEO of Ayar Labs to starting Sphere, and all the entrepreneurial lessons along the way.Listen to this episode to learn more about climate change, entrepreneurship, and understanding where the finance in your investment holdings actually goes.About our guest:Alex Wright-Gladstein is an entrepreneur with a passion for addressing climate change. She is also the Co-Founder of Ayar Labs founded in 2015, formerly OptiBit, a company transforming computing performance by moving data with light. On today's episode: Meet Alex Wright-Gladstein, Founder and CEO of Sphere – 00:50 Alex shares where she stands in her entrepreneurial journey – 03:51 The difference switching from technology to finance – 08:18 The importance of developing a community focus when creating a movement – 12:08 The approach for advocating climate-friendly practices in companies today – 16:19 Alex explains the impact of each person's “pocketbook” – 17:41 Alex talks about what had the most significant impact on improving her growth as an entrepreneur – 20:52 The intentionality required for building the right team – 23:29 Alex shares about what she currently finds really interesting – 27:42 How Alex defines success – 33:01 Key Takeaways: Understanding the need for systemic change is really important for tackling climate issues. There are so many factors that keep things in place and are root problems for why an issue exists. It will be tough to make a significant difference if you don't understand the deeper problems and hidden forces behind why they still exist. It is so crucial for entrepreneurs to be intentional. Intentionality is about where you focus your time and energy. Being intentional about building the right team that can run with your vision is time worth spending. Do not make the mistake of quickly filling gaps in your team and stunting long-term growth with the wrong people in the driver's seat. Have clear, measurable goals towards your success. Do not make the journey towards success and progress vague or arbitrary. Some things have to be made black and white. The clearer and more measurable you make your goals, the better you will have insight into what you need to do to reach them. The next seven years are a crucial window for climate change action. Scientists predict that the global warming impact will cross the 1.5 degree Celsius threshold in seven years if things continue as they are. This can lead to irreversible damage to the planet. The good news is 80% of Americans are concerned about climate change, and the correct systemic change can avert this problem. (Read about the Sunrise Movement for more information) What do entrepreneurs need to be intentional about and focus on?[22:39] “Be really intentional about hiring. It can be so easy to take shortcuts and bring someone on because you desperately need to fill a gap, but it is very hard to reverse mistakes.”Are you on the journey of growing as an entrepreneur?

Guest Soraya O'Brien Jollon started her career in management consulting but realized that there were elements of corporate life that didn't suit her. She also realized that she wanted to do something that made people happy and she was also a bit of a control freak. Enter event planning.She found she liked all the things that make most people panic, dealing with other people's emotions and with the stress around planning stemming from such uncomfortable topics as family, religion or money (or all three). She started her own company in New York City where she planned cross-cultural and interfaith weddings, same-sex weddings, and more—all events for people with interesting stories and challenges figuring out how to navigate who they are as individuals and in partnership and with families. Yes, she was picking out napkin colors, but it was really all about building connection and negotiating inter-personal dynamics in service of celebrating life's highlights. At a certain point, she took a look at her own family situation and asked out loud how she wanted to be celebrating life with the one's she loved most deeply. The answer led her to an unexpected place.In this episode, find out from Soraya how listening to what people need can create connection and lead to new adventures…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestSoraya O'Brien Jollon is currently Chief Strategy Officer for Wedsly, a digital wedding planning start-up, where she can use her industry experience and not have to attend an event every weekend. For more than a decade, she ran the New York-based SORAYA weddings, gatherings and destinations. You can stiil find her work on her beautiful website.

Are you the kind of person who takes the stairs? Or have you been the kind of person who doesn't even think about how important they are? Is the easy way the best way in all things? The world is full of people looking for shortcuts. The problem is, they are shortcuts to nowhere. They don't achieve what they want. They don't get to where they want to go, because they weren't willing to do the little things. They only did what they wanted, so they didn't get where they wanted to be. We can do better. We must. With some simple imagery, and a few tools: M.I.D., you can make each day a part of who you are becoming.- Why do more people take the escalator over the stairs?- Do little choices, like a flight of stairs, really matter?- Do little things we choose to do say big things about who we are?- How can mindfulness, intentionality, and direction make all the difference?- Which did you choose this week? (Faith, Moral Excellence, Knowledge, Self-Control, Perseverance, Godliness, Brotherly Kindness, Love)
Practicing mindfulness is popular and, for Dave Schmelzer, robustly helpful. But is it Christian? Dave looks at insights from The Mindful Christian, in which Irene Kraegel thoughtfully and thoroughly grounds it in the Bible and the Christian tradition. God, it turns out, is very much present and at work as we "get behind the waterfall" of our thoughts and emotions.

Alex Haley is a meditation teacher and co-founder of Offering Tree. Offering Tree is an all in one package for yoga teachers and small business owners combining a website, booking system, email marketing and basically everything you need to get started running your own business. When Offering Tree reached out to us to become ambassadors, we took a deep dive into how their site worked and their values as a company. We were impressed! We wanted to talk to Alex here on the podcast, especially at this time of change and challenge within the yoga industry and world in general. Offering tree ended up being a fairly small part of this conversation, as we delved into topics around ethics, intentionality and a lot of the questions that have been on our minds lately.

Episode 203: Today You Choose - It's all about Family: Interview Jason Martin This is Your Captain Speaking - Life Lessons from the Journey So Far Welcome to the Love Your Story podcast. How often have you thought about the importance of intentionally making your family - the people you love - the most important thing in your life? Not just in word and intention, but in actuality? On today's show I'm talking with Jason Martin, the author or This is your Captain Speaking - Life Lessons from the Journey so far. As I read his book it was easy to sum up the entire premise - Make Your Family Your Top Priority, and the intentionality of making memories, recording memories, sharing memories with loved ones. In this heartwarming book he wrote to his family, Jason Martin takes us on a journey inside his life as a husband, father, provider, and a family leader. You will watch as he shows you how to create a life filled with memories that your children will remember for the rest of their lives. By creating a legacy built on the foundations of love, hope, and gratitude, your family will learn critical life lessons to become the best versions of everything they can be. —-This is what we are all about on the Love Your Story podcast - intentionally creating the life we want on purpose. Stay tuned for my discussion with Jason - the Captain of his family, and I think you'll leave with some ideas for your own intentional family living. Jason Martin has not experience as a writer, in fact he failed copy editing in college, but he is a believer in dreams and stretching. He is a former sports anchor and currently runs one of the most successful real estate teams in Washington D.C., but above all, his family is his #1 priority. He and his wife Jennifer have 3 human children and a dog named Scooby, and together they live a fun, wild, everyday normal life. Jason writes this book specifically to his family, addressing them in unexpected places. There is not question we are peaking into a compilation he wrote for his family, but in that compilation we see what it looks like to put family first. There is no doubt he wishes to teach, support and leave a legacy for his kids. Tune in to the audio program to hear my discussion with Jason. You don't want to miss it. You start out your book with “Anyone who knows me will tell you that above all else comes family.” Let's start out with why….

I wanted to end with 3 of them that I liked. #1 - Consistency: Consistency is required for success in life. As you create your best life story on purpose be consistent with those things that really matter. Consistently be there - show up. Consistently be kind. Consistently listen. Consistently sit down and tackle that project. Intentionality requires consistency. #2 What you tell yourself matters - here we are back to the idea that the stories you tell yourself are the most powerful stories you will ever tell. If your self-talk is uplifting and supportive you'll fly. #3 Ideas to Action - as you intentionally plan what you want in your story you'll start with an idea. If you don't put that idea into action it won't happen. So remember, intentionally living requires you to take action. Even if it takes years to show up. Your challenge for this week is to think about your family. Think about the priority they are for you and see if your actions are aligned with where that priority sits in your mind and heart. All these ideas we've discussed today are ideas you can teach your family. Kids and help parents understand new ideas and parents should absolutely teach children how to live intentionally. If there is something you can tweak this week to help your kids learn...
