Marriage, Marathons and Mental Health with Tony Overbay

In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with my friend, Tony Overbay, a licensed marriage and family therapist and utlra marathon runner. We talk about the metaphors we’ve seen in long distance running to marriage. He also talks about setting goals for the new year, using principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. There are so many benefits physical activity can have on our mental and emotional health. Let’s make 2020 our BEST year ever.

What Life is Like For the Spouse of a Successful Entrepreneur with Collette Brunson

Today’s interview is with one of my best friends, Collette Brunson. Collette is is the lesser know although better half of the Brunson partnership. She has been behind the scenes of ClickFunnels from the beginning, encouraging, supporting and loving her husband as he has cycled through all the stages of building a super successful and thriving business.

In our interview, Collette gets real and honest. She tells her version of how they met and fell in love, what it was like get the news that they were broke and on the verge of bankruptcy and what it was like the first time she saw the impact Russell’s work was having on so many people. She talks about the challenges and blessings of being the wife of an entrepreneur, gives her best advice about how to navigate all the ups and downs, the opportunity to give back with continued success and tells us about the exciting new project she is working on right now.

I could be biased, but this is one of my favorite interviews to date. I hope you will listen to the bonus episode I published on Friday with Russell to give you some context and I hope you will be able to feel my love and admiration for this family.

Getting to Know Heidi and Orville Thompson – Scentsy Owners

Today’s episode is a great one. We are getting to know Heidi and Orville Thompson, owners of Scentsy. They take us back to how they met, how Scentsy came to be and the challenges and triumphs that came with all of it. I’m grateful for the opportunity to know this family in real life. Their journey to success hasn’t been easy, but they are generous and sincere and genuinely care about the people who work with and for them.

I learned so much about working together to make a marriage and a multi million dollar company work with simple principles of communication, intuition, understanding and love. I love the arrows out analogy they talk about at the end. This is the perfect episode for any couple who has ever wanted to build something amazing together.

Second Marriages and Blended Families with Brandon Cunningham

Today’s guest is a Pastor of a church in Flour Bluff, Texas and the father of 5 kids, his and hers, but ultimately ours. He has some incredible advice and messages of hope for anyone in a second marriage and/or attempting to blend two families together to one. This can be challenging but so rewarding. He talks about some rules and strategies that helped he and his wife succeed in their second marriage and how they helped their kids. I love what they learned and how they taught their children about treating everyone like family regardless of their last name or how they got there. He shares his perspective having survived the child rearing years and now, as a grandpa.

Brandon also hosts his own podcast called Beyond the Rut about taking the next step and making your own path. His podcast can be found here: https://beyondtherut.com.
