Ep 24- How To Create An Amazing Community, Ft.Sereniah Brelend
This episode is brought to you by JUST BETWEEN FRIENDS. We have all faced some unique circumstances this year that have left us wondering “what’s next?” What we know for sure, is our kids don’t stop growing. Have you spent your extra time at home cleaning out their closets and now they have nothing to wear? Wondering if you buy school clothes or comfy pajamas? Well there is a solution and it won’t break the bank. JUST BETWEEN FRIENDS is a large bi-annual children’s and maternity consignment sale. JBF offers a way for bargain-savvy families to SAVE up to 90% off retail prices but also provides an option to MAKE $ by consigning your items. More importantly, it’s all local, so you’re helping your friends and other families in our community provide for their family when you shop. Items remaining at the end of the sale are donated to local charities who are able to continue helping families in the community. The next JBF sale is July 30-Aug 1, 2020 at Concordia HS (1201 S. Heatherwilde Blvd, Pflugerville,TX, 78660). Register to be a consigner, get free shopping passes, and all the details at jbfsale.com for more details.

EP 20: The SIX Needs You Must Get Met During Quarantine
Quarantine anxiety is a real thing… battling it can be tough. In the episode I want to share some insight that’s not only helped me in the past few years..it has REALLY come in handy during all this quarantine craziness. Socrates said, “Tenet nostrum”. (Latin for, ‘Know thyself.) If you ‘know yourself’ (self awareness) and can recognize why you may be feeling the way you feel right now, it can be a huge advantage. Every human being us has six basic needs. All of us. As we go thru these, remember two things… Everyone has all six needs. None of them are better or worse than the others… none are good or bad… every human being has every one of them. Everyone has a top 2-3 that drive them more than the others. You’re gonna want to take notes. Save this episode. Share it. Email it to your spouse or coworker. Here they are. (My personal ‘top three’ are listed at the very bottom.) Certainty Uncertainty Significance Love/Connection Growth Contribution Why am I spending time on this? Because if you can recognize the 2 -3 needs that drive you the most, you’ll be able to more clearly see the things that fulfill you… AND the things that wreak havoc on your peace of mind. (That could be really handy right about now..) By the way, after going thru these I’ve learned that MY primary driving needs are Growth and Contribution (followed by connection). Go figure. :)
