If you’re so exhausted and overwhelmed by your status quo that you can’t even figure out a way to add GOOD things into your life, you need this weekly podcast. Hosts Betsy & Warren Talbot know how to remove what's not working so you can have more of what you love.

Episode 43 comes to you from the beautiful Andalucia region of Spain. In this, the last show of 2013, we're going to show you how we conduct our annual review cycle. We share our own process by looking back at 2013 - the good, the bad, and the exciting. It's been a big year, and we dish on what has gone great as well as what could have been better in our lives, our relationship, and our business. Then we share one big goal each for the year to come.

In this episode we provide you an inside look into the annual review process we've done together for the last 10 years and walk through the outline to implement this valuable process in your own life. 

Plus, you can find out how Warren shocks Betsy with a sexy revelation during the episode.

Since starting this podcast we've received dozens of questions about our life of traveling, working, and living together 24/7. Today we are answering questions from our readers and listeners to the podcast. We're addressing questions about:

  • Saying goodbye to friends and family to follow your heart
  • Balancing work and play on the road
  • Dealing with setbacks
  • How to stop worrying about money and the future
  • Where we're spending the winter

Sit down with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy as we share our honest feedback to your questions.

Episode 41 coming to you from Lubrin, Spain. We're chatting today about starting a business with a crazy idea and growing it beyond your biggest dreams.

Have you ever had a big, crazy idea that you let go of after too much thinking and not enough action? We're talking about the importance of actions in going after a big goal in today's episode. We dish on how our own crazy idea of working together is working out. In addition, we're talking to an eBay guru who started her business selling shoes online and grew it into a multi-million dollar success. Listen and learn how you can take the steps in your own life towards making your big, crazy idea come true.

Our guest today, Beth Marbach, left her executive recruiting career to build DowntownGal Shoes & More, an eBay store specializing in high-end designer shoes and accessories. In a little over a decade and exclusively from her basement office, Beth sold over $4 million dollars in footwear to clients across the globe. She's currently writing a book about how she made it happen and you can sign up for updates at DowntownGal.com.

Episode 40 coming to you from Lubrin, Spain. Today we're diving in to one of the most common questions we receive - How do you find a great partner…especially if you're over 40?

We share our tips on what attracted us to each other and how the maturity (gained from second marriages) helped to ready us for the partnership we have created. Plus, we pimp out Betsy's brother in the process.

We're joined on the show by dating guru, Ronnie Ann Ryan. She woke up on her 40th birthday and realized she might be single for the rest of her life, and she really wanted a relationship. It was at that moment she decided to turn things around. After dating 30 men in 15 months, she met her husband Paul (lucky #30!).  You can find out more about Ronnie and her books and workshops on finding love after 40 at NeverTooLate.Biz.

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It's a death trap." ~Sir Anthony Hopkins

Episode 39 is coming to you from Kas, Turkey. Today we're talking about how to quiet that pesky voice in your head that over thinks and over analyzes everything. Boy is this a problem with us and everyone we know. We used to do it all the time in our relationship (why did he do that? is she mad at me? what does that mean?), and now we only do it half the time. Progress!

Dr. Amy Johnson joins us again to share insights from her new book, Being Human: Essays on Thoughtmares, Bouncing Back, and Your True Nature, which is available now on Amazon or at her website at DrAmyJohnson.com.

She'll tell us why we're all over-thinking (ahem, because we're human!) and how to clear our minds as easily as we breathe. She also enlightens us on "thoughtmares," and how to dismiss them as quickly as we do nightmares.

This is a powerful episode for anyone who overthinks, overanalyzes, or just can't let go of certain thoughts. (And that pretty much includes everyone, we think. Isn't it nice to know you're not alone?)

Episode 38 coming to you from Kas, Turkey. Today we're dishing on our taking on a big physical challenge with your partner...without killing each other.

We just completed the most demanding physical challenge we've ever attempted and we're happy to report that we survived the experience. In fact, I would say that we thrived in the face of all the challenges and demands.

In this episode we talk about our 30 day hike of the Lycian Way in Turkey together. We share the story of our worst night of camping, the beauty of being disconnected, and how we look naked now (ok. some of that may be too much information).

This was the greatest effort we've completed and we're damn proud of each other so you'll hear a bit of sloppy romantic talk as well.

For more details about our hike, we created HikeTheLycian.com. This is the website we wish we had found before the hike. We've pulled together photos, information, tips, and recommendations for anyone interested in the hike or our experience. Pass on to your friends who may be looking for some time outdoors.

Are you confusing busyness with progress? It's an easy mistake to make, working all day long and wondering why you made no progress. Today's guest, Joel Zaslofsky, talks about why simplicity from the inside out will give you more of what you want in life. And he even taught Betsy a way she can finally love spreadsheets...

More about Joel: He is the creator of unsexy tools that result in a very sexy life. What he can teach you at  Value of Simple is to focus on what really matters in your life instead of pushing it to the side or waiting for "leftover" time.

Too busy to journal? Wondering how you'll ever finish your bucket list? Concerned about where your money is going (or not going)?

Joel has practical answers to all these questions, and you know how much we love practical tips. Check out his website, and listen in below for a great conversation about what really matters.

We are currently in the midst of our own 5 week, 509km (300 mile) walk along the Turkish coast and are enjoying the peace and comfort that comes from getting away and enjoying being close to nature. Today we're talking about the benefits of taking a nice long walk…one that takes weeks instead of hours. 

Long walks give us the opportunity to reconnect both with each other, as well as ourselves. We can walk for hours a day talking, thinking, and imagining the future. In our last walk we made some crazy plans (more on that in the podcast) and looking forward to what comes out of this adventure.

We are delighted to talk with Hillary Augustine in this episode. She has been called an innovator, poet, wordsmith, cultural engineer, and financial energizer. She works with innovators and cultural creatives to excavate stuck places and mobilize people towards wholeness and internal financial resonance.
