Episode 020

Hi ass kickers!

In this new episode I talk about something I’ve never discussed before in detail: Marriage. More specifically, what works and what doesn’t.

My guest is the fun-loving and whip-smart Josh Becker of i simply am. In this episode you will hear:

  • Josh discusses what’s important to his healthy marriage- owning what is his baggage is and letting go of what isn’t.
  • Josh tells us what the number one important action we can take in order to have the relationships we want (hint: it isn’t couple counseling).
  • The biggest thing Andrea has let go of to help in her marriage…something that was a great hindrance to her first marriage.
  • Andrea and Josh both share the one most important need they both articulate to their spouses in order to be happy.
  • We discuss “The Fixer” (the person in the relationship- usually the man who tries to fix every problem even if we don’t need it fixed). Josh gives advice about how to encourage and help spouses like that.
