Everyday Rockstar (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie talk with this week's featured Everyday Rockstar. You or someone you love could be featured on the show too! Send your nominations to thelisashow@byu.edu and put "Everyday Rockstar" in the subject line. COVID-19 and Buyer Behavior (0:04:17) As buyers in the economy, we’re influenced by our unique situations and surroundings. The worldwide pandemic is no exception, and it threw off almost everyone’s consumer habits in a matter of weeks. As the pandemic hit, we watched consumer madness unfold. We witnessed people buying hundreds of rolls of toilet paper at one time, dropping tons of money while online shopping the sales, and streaming more movies and TV shows than ever before. So, what does this mean for us and the future of our consumption? Today we’re joined by Dr. Jorge Barraza , an associate professor of Consumer Psychology at USC, here with us to discuss how coronavirus has and will affect our consumer behavior. Common Goals in Marriage (0:16:50) Times like quarantine have the potential to be tough on a marriage. One thing that’s been proven to bring a couple together in a powerful way is having a set of shared goals. But where do we start, and how can having the same goals really unite us with our spouses? To answer these questions and provide some clarity is Terry Gaspard, a licensed clinical social worker, therapist, and author. The Genius of Women (0:36:57) When we think “genius”, names like Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, and Isaac Newton typically pop into our heads. These were all great men, however that’s just it: they were all men. What about all of the genius women who made amazing strides in science, technology, literature, and more? Who are they, and why don’t we know them as well as their male counterparts? To answer these questions, we invited Janice Kaplan to the show. Janice is a New York Times bestselling author and most recently wrote the provoking novel, “The Genius of Women: From Overlooked to Changing the World.” Cybersecurity (0:55:15) With our kids enrolling in Zoom University, online has become more important than ever. And with everything moving online, cybersecurity should be on all of our minds. What can we do to ensure our own internet safety? Here to give us some advice is tech consultant Anna Murray. How to Eat Better While Isolated (1:11:42) At the beginning of our social isolation time, a lot of us thought that now would be a great time to get healthy. A couple of weeks in, and cake really seems like the best option for breakfast every day. So how can we use this time to break bad habits and eat better? Teri Secrest is a certified health and wellness coach and international keynote speaker who urges people to take control of their health naturally. We thought we could use some of that same urging today, so we’ve invited Teri on the show to help us out. Dancing and Mental Health (1:27:08) Today happens to be International Dance day, so if you needed an excuse to bust a move, here it is! People dance for many reasons and occasions, but many don’t realize that it comes with several benefits. One of the biggest being that it can improve our mental health. We’re talking with Hannah Poikonen about some of the ways that dancing affects our mental state and how we can implement dance in our lives more often. Hanna is a Master of Science, a dancer and the founder of a dance related workshop called Wise Motion.
