Resolving Conflicts with Co-Parents (0:00:00) Dealing with an ex can be really discouraging especially if there are children involved. Emotions can run hot and resolving issues can seem impossible. Finding ways to overcome these obstacles however, is necessary for the overall wellbeing of the family. Lauren Lake is a family lawyer and serves as the judge on the Emmy Award winning show “Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court” where she deals with broken families. She’s talking with us today about how co-parents can resolve their conflicts and become more united. Compartmentalizing (0:16:23) Compartmentalizing is a trendy term we hear all the time. But what does it mean? Compartmentalizing is taking the stress and disappointment from one area of your life, like work for example, and not letting it bleed into other areas of your life, like your relationship with your kids. But how healthy is it to file your feelings away in your brain like this? To weigh in on the subject, we invited psychologist Dr. Mike Brooks, to be with us on the show today. Overcoming Writer Self-Doubt (0:35:40) Writing can be one of the toughest but most rewarding feats. Aspiring authors may find that they have been stumped more than once in their writing by a feeling of self-doubt. If this has happened to you, fear not: you are not alone. Many writers agree that they feel that sense of “imposter syndrome” when it comes to writing and putting their creative work out into the world. We are joined today by writing coach Colleen Story as she explains that you can move past this “monster in every writer’s closet” and unlock your full potential. Kindness Always Wins (0:50:35) Kindness requires us to look outside of ourselves. But it’s so easy to get swallowed up in the difficulties of our own lives that we forget about other people’s needs and start to wonder if looking out for others is really worth our time and effort. But for one man, kindness is priceless... it even saved his life. Mark Schonwetter survived the holocaust, immigrated to America, and built his own business thanks to the brave and kind acts of family, friends, and even strangers. He joins us to talk about why kindness is absolutely vital. Investment Apps (1:13:36) We’d all like to see our net worth increase over our lifetime. One way to do this is by investing in the stock market. Now this might seem intimidating considering that the most that many of us know about the stock market is that you should buy stocks at low prices belonging to good companies. But lucky for us, there are some investment apps you can download to help you out. Arielle O’Shea is NerdWallet’s investing specialist. We’ve invited her on the show today to share her expertise on investing in the stock market and apps to help. Airplane Etiquette (1:28:19) Airplane etiquette has been a popular topic in the news recently and rightfully so. It’s important to recognize that the decisions you make between the time your plane takes off and lands affect not only you but the others traveling alongside you. With so many people crammed into such a small space, knowing the polite way to fly is necessary for the happiness of everyone involved. Here to set the record straight about what is and isn’t considered polite when on an airplane is Dan Senning. Dan teaches the Emily Post Business Etiquette Train the Trainer Course and travels the country giving business etiquette seminars. Show More...
