However, we thought it would be interesting to give you a peek behind the scenes as we go through making a big change. Over the next few weeks we'll share with you the conversations we're having, the challenges along the way, and we're sure a few "heated discussions" (aka fights) as we look to...

Imagine you could go back 5 years and sit across the table from yourself. You'd have a chance to share advice and recommendations to the younger you. What would you say? What inspiration would you give? Would you provide ideas for how to enjoy more of life? Or, would you warn yourself away from danger? This week, as we celebrate 5 years of living our best lives, we decided hop in our way back machine and share some wisdom with those two wide eyed and slightly pudgier versions of ourselves as...

This is episode 129 of the Married with Luggage Podcast, and today we’re talking about FEAR, that monster who’s only goal is to scare you from trying anything new ever again as long as you live. In order to live your best life you will need to move beyond that fear, and today we share the answer. Listen as we talk about our own fears, how to train your fear to work for you, and the importance role that fear should play in your life (hint, it is not as a roadblock).  We also created a...

This is episode 128 of the Married with Luggage Podcast, and today we’re talking about Scarcity, that fear that you don’t have enough money, know-how, or time to have the life you really want. We've all been in situations in which we told ourselves we did not have "enough" (time/money/experience/knowledge) to go after something we wanted. This feeling keeps us from moving towards what we want and we convince ourselves it's not possible. In today's episode we're flipping that...

"What is the #1 obstacle you are facing in going after your best life?" This is the question we asked a couple of weeks ago on our Facebook page, and I don’t think we were prepared for the number of people who shared their challenges so openly. We heard about people's struggles with time, money, not knowing where to start, and a multitude of earnest insights into what was keeping them from living the life they wanted. Over the course of a few morning walks we discussed the...

This is episode 126 of the Married with Luggage Podcast, and today we’re talking about what it’s like to live in very close quarters with someone you love.   We're back. After a month enjoying cooler weather and amazing food in Galicia (northwestern Spain), we are back in the south and getting reacquainted with our microphone. Today's episode we're sharing our thoughts on living in an RV with 2 cats for a few weeks and what we learned about each other and ourselves in the process.  ...

The Married with Luggage Podcast never takes a vacation. But Betsy and Warren do! Over the past few weeks we've highlighted a few of our most popular past episodes, and today is your last peek into the archive. (Well, unless you just go to our website or to iTunes and listen to them yourself.) This episode is all about buying a house in Spain: why we did it, what it means for our lifestyle, and how we feel about our evolving dream. This episode drained our servers a bit when it published,...

The Married with Luggage Podcast never takes a vacation. But Betsy and Warren do! This month we're highlighting a few of our most popular past episodes, and today's is called 'I wrote a romance novel.' You know why? Because I did! If you're thinking of writing a book or any endeavor where you don't quite know all the steps, this episode will show you how we moved forward into this new genre with a lot of energy and not much else. And if you're interested in the romance books, you can check...

Treating your relationship like a lab rat isn't as weird as it sounds. You track what happens, learn from your mistakes, and improve over time. As nerdy as it sounds, you can improve your chances at love by paying attention to what you're doing right in the quest for love...and what you're doing wrong. In today's episode, we start by revealing some of our more geeky relationship rules, lessons we've learned through trial and error: Our annual love contract Why we ask the hard questions of...

In today's conversation we reveal our own personal struggles with a lagging libido and one approach we've used to help rekindle the spark. We're talking about how erotica can provide a fun addition to the bedroom. This is a replay of one of our most popular episodes ever. We are enjoying a few weeks away from the microphone and hope you like this look back at a great show.

Imagine us in the studio, bullet points ready for a quality conversation about living your best life right next to our coffee cups, ready to create a quality podcast for you. Then imagine everything going to hell, a huge fight, and one of us walking away to cool off. Ever feel that way about something you're trying to build? An intense need to quit, to drop it, to find something easier? We felt that way this week, and instead of giving in, we left the microphone on and talked about it. This is...

Have you ever talked yourself out of a great idea? Spent weeks researching a new endeavor, never taking any action towards making it a reality? We thought so. We've been there too - stuck trying to find all the answers & determine every possibility before taking the first action. Paralyzed by the unknown. In this week's episode we're talking about analysis paralysis, the over-thinking that stops you in your tracks before you even take the first step. We share the business idea that that...

Over the last 12 episodes we've shared with you the habits and actions that work in building your dream lifestyle. But we didn’t come to those conclusions without a LOT of trial and error. Since making the decision to start living our best lives we have made a host of mistakes and missteps. We don't always share them, but today we're coming clean.  This is episode 123 of the Married with Luggage Podcast, and today we're talking about what we've done wrong on the path to living our best...

Wow, we can't believe that we are already at the last step in our Life the Best Life Series. Over the course of the last 3 months we've identified what should be removed from your life, created a list of what you want most, delved into your native tendencies, and given you jump start to take control of your finances. Each of these steps is designed to create a practical guide you can use to create the life that you want today. We know because we used these exact same steps to create the life...

Before we left to follow our dream and travel the world, we were not in our best shape. Far from it, in fact. This is one area we both wish we had focused on more leading up to creating our best lives. Today we're sharing the challenges that being out of shape can have as you move towards your best life. Plus, we share actionable steps you can take to gain back the energy in your life to go after what you want most. Reaching your dream is meaningless if you aren't healthy enough to enjoy it,...

There are a lot of ways to manage your money, but it won't do you a bit of good until you change your mindset.

Last episode we talked about planning your year, listing those small and large goals that will make your life measurably better. But guess what? You can’t just list them and wait for them to happen. It takes some work! In today’s episode, we reveal the practical system we use to accomplish everything from a trip around the world to writing a book to getting fit enough for a 300-mile hike. It’s not rocket science, but it does take some personal propulsion. Once you learn this system, you...

Do you find yourself every new year identifying a list of "resolutions" to embark on something new only to discover a couple months later you've given up on each and every one? This was us for the first several years of our relationship. We'd announce big plans and then do nothing to make them a reality. Then in 2009 we make a switch. We started implementing an annual review of our lives which has changed everything now is the foundation for how we can accomplish so much each and...

In today’s episode, we’re talking about removing toxic people from your life and filling your circle with great people who’ll cheer you on. Have you ever heard the saying, you're most like the five people you spend the bulk of your time with? Well, if those people are not the kind to wish you the best or support your dreams, then it’s gonna be pretty damn hard to create the kind of life you want. Limiting your time with toxic people and learning how to draw great people into your...

In today’s episode, we’re talking about what makes your partner tick and how that insight can transform your relationship. For the first several years of our relationship, we didn't really know each other. We thought we did, of course, but we didn’t have a clue. Because of that, we fought about things that weren’t really fights and created problems where there weren’t any. Last week you got to know yourself. In today’s show, you’re going to do the same with your partner.
