Plus, we’re answering listener questions on our favourite podcast. Okay, so Emma went to the Taylor Swift live performance. She’s going to inform us how a lot it modified her life or no matter else. 

Emma: Sure. I went to the Kansas Metropolis July seventh present. I really feel like each Swifty like is aware of little issues that occur at each single present. The Taylor Lautner one.

Elsie: Yeah. That’s how I see it. 

Emma: That was the one I used to be at. Taylor Lautner did a backflip on stage. So, I ought to admit up entrance as a result of I really feel like if I don’t then I’ll be pressured about it your complete time. However I don’t occur to know any Taylor Swift songs from the start to finish. I assumed I did, and I spotted all through the live performance, I don’t. I do know the refrain of most of her hits, however I used to be very proud to be within the membership for the night time, and hopefully for all times now. Hopefully the Swifties have accepted me. However primarily my pals had been like, my e book membership pals, they had been like, we’re going to Taylor Swift this summer time. Who needs to go? This was months and months in the past after they had been shopping for the tickets on Ticketmaster. And I used to be like, oh, if there’s sufficient tickets, I need to go. Like all of us simply type of threw in our names within the slack that we’ve and there have been sufficient tickets so I acquired one. And because it was main as much as it, I used to be kind of realizing from social media and in addition my pals group texts, how this was such an enormous deal. And to me, I used to be like, oh, I’m simply going to go to a live performance with my pals this summer time. How enjoyable. Like I didn’t actually give it some thought past that. After which when everybody began sharing what outfit they had been going to put on, I used to be like, oh, grownup Halloween in the summertime. I’m so excited. So I imply, it was like, oh, I acquired to get a loopy outfit. So I’ll put an image within the present notes, however I acquired this type of disco ball wanting outfit. It was type of an area cowgirl vibe. I had white cowgirl boots and a white cowboy hat and yeah, I’m going to put on the gown for New Yr’s Eve, I believe yearly as a result of it significantly appears like a disco ball and it’s enjoyable to bop in as a result of it type of swirls. So anyway, so I felt like I seemed the half no less than, however yeah, the live performance was superior. 

Elsie: Did you make friendship bracelets? 

Emma: Oh sure, we made numerous friendship bracelets. We had a bracelet making night time with everybody who was getting into my group of pals, after which everybody’s simply been making all of them summer time. We had been making them within the automotive on the way in which as much as Kansas metropolis. So yeah, we traded bracelets and that was most likely one among my favourite issues concerning the live performance. I used to be telling you that there’s like 12 yr previous ladies, there have been 40 yr previous ladies, there was every little thing in between. And I’ve by no means been to a present the place there’s that many alternative age teams. There have been significantly like faculty ladies sitting within the row in entrance of us who we had been buying and selling bracelets with and that was simply enjoyable and candy. And everybody was so excited and it was only a actually enjoyable setting. It’s additionally undoubtedly the most important live performance I’ve ever been to. I don’t even know if I’ve been to a different stadium present, possibly, however I’ve by no means been to at least one this measurement. That was one thing new for me and actually enjoyable. Yeah, it was superior. I did really feel slightly bit like a poser the entire time, but it surely was superior. Had plenty of enjoyable. My pals are the perfect and largely happy with my outfit. 

Elsie: That feels like a very good overview. Nicely, it seemed like numerous enjoyable.

Emma: It was very enjoyable. And it actually wasn’t even that sizzling. It was type of open air. It was nice.

Elsie: Magical. 

Emma: Magical. Good time. 

Elsie: Okay. So this episode is about the perfect recommendation we’ve ever acquired. I’m so excited. to do that as a result of it’s type of identical to slightly little bit of every little thing and I really like recommendation. I adore it when individuals give me like, I at all times say the perfect e book I need to learn is one thing that somebody informed me was their favourite e book of the yr, that type of factor. Like when individuals get actually in your face passionate, that’s my favourite factor. 

Emma: You’d have liked the Swiftie live performance then. That’s all it was. 

Elsie: That’s humorous. Sure. 

Emma: No, me too, although. I do really feel like if anybody ever says this factor modified my life, then Elsie’s already shopping for it, no matter it’s, or studying it or no matter it’s. Massive time. Sure. Okay. Nicely, we’ve three totally different areas we’re going to speak about enterprise, motherhood, after which simply life typically. And a few of mine’s type of particular and a few of mine’s type of like unfold out. So I believe it’ll be slightly random, however one factor I wished to say up prime that’s actually served me nicely in my life is I’ve at all times been fairly into studying or listening to different individuals’s tales. So like several probability I get to learn an autobiography or a biography of somebody who’s in a subject that I’m concerned about or residing in a time that I’m concerned about. I’ve at all times liked that. I additionally love the podcast, How I Constructed This, the place you find out about how individuals began their companies. I’m obsessive about it. I’ve listened to so many episodes of that whereas portray varied rooms. So I don’t know if that’s actually recommendation however only one factor I’d say is for those who really feel such as you don’t have sufficient good recommendation in your life, try this, learn biographies, learn autobiographies, hearken to podcasts about how individuals began their enterprise or acquired good at being a mum or dad or had a fantastic marriage or no matter it’s that you just’re eager to find out about. As a result of I believe listening to individuals’s particular tales, even when their life could be very totally different from yours, one thing about that to me is at all times very significant. 

Elsie: Yeah, I do know. I agree. I really like that. I really like a memoir any probability I get for positive. Okay, so what’s your finest enterprise recommendation that you just’ve ever acquired?

Emma: I used to be interested by it as a result of I generally really feel like enterprise blends into cash, however that’s extra private finance so what I landed on is I really feel like the perfect recommendation I’ve been given through the years is to primarily don’t be afraid to fail, pivot, abandon one thing and check out one thing new. And to ask questions, even questions which may appear actually fundamental, such as you’re embarrassed to ask. You’re feeling like everybody else within the room is aware of the reply, apart from you. And it’s a really like an ego demise factor to be like, I’m simply going to surrender on this as a result of it’s not working and I’m going to strive one thing new or to be like, I’m going to go forward and lift my hand and say, I don’t know the fundamentals of this. Are you able to clarify it to me? Like I’m a fourth grader. It’s my Michael Scott however generally you should try this, particularly in enterprise.

Elsie: Yeah, no, I agree. Asking a query you don’t need to ask is such a very good high quality and admirable. And I believe that nodding alongside and pretending like you realize once you don’t know, individuals can often inform. I don’t suppose that that’s an admirable high quality. I believe it’s cool when individuals are keen to say like, oh, I’ve by no means realized about that earlier than at any age. That’s regular and acceptable. So I believe that’s nice. I like what you mentioned about pivoting and stuff. One of many issues I wrote down was there’s no disgrace in quitting. I believe that that’s one thing that I didn’t perceive after I was youthful. I’d have like a really particular objective or dream, plenty of occasions it was one thing that I noticed another person do and I wished to do it too, however identical to they did and have related expertise. Now I do know that that isn’t such a very good path to go down in life as a result of once you’re in search of success in the identical approach another person skilled it, you’re nearly by no means going to search out it. However for those who’re keen to open your thoughts to all of the totally different prospects, possibly you’ll discover one thing totally different. A number of occasions even higher or no less than higher suited to you However yeah, I believe studying to stop and pivot are one among our strengths. I don’t keep in mind the place or why we realized it. We did study at a younger age that if one thing’s not working then we are able to simply drop it Drop it and transfer on and type of really feel no disgrace for it. No emotions for it. I imply, generally I get unhappy, however for probably the most half, probably not. Simply freaking transfer on and don’t really feel obligated to complete what you began each single time. I don’t suppose that that’s at all times a very good transfer in enterprise.

Emma: Yeah. And I believe, we’re speaking in such basic phrases, so everybody will know for themselves. There are occasions you may inform you’re like, I’m not carried out with this or this factor’s not carried out with me though I’m feeling like this isn’t going nicely, or it’s type of floundering, I believe I ought to maintain pushing. There are occasions you may really feel that. After which there’s different occasions the place primarily I believe it’s type of like, nicely, I’ve informed all my pals I’m going to do that factor so although I type of don’t need to do it anymore, I’m type of realizing it’s not a very good match. I already informed everybody, so I higher simply maintain going. That’s not a very good cause proper there. In order that, after which additionally type of the entire like sunk value fallacy, you realize, that complete factor the place it’s like, I’ll simply maintain throwing cash at this trigger I’ve already put 20,000 into this home so I can by no means transfer and I’ve to maintain going. And it’s like, nicely possibly, however possibly you need to minimize your losses as a result of earlier than you is perhaps 50,000 in and nonetheless know higher. So it’s like, possibly you need to have simply moved on and accepted a loss or no matter. 

Elsie: Yeah. I educated my mind to be superb at that. I believe the smallest instance is like once you’re cleansing out your closet and also you’re like, I don’t like this, however I by no means wore it or I wore it only some occasions and it prices 50 {dollars} or no matter. It simply bothers you. And you’re feeling like what I must do is put on it 5 extra occasions or maintain it for this many extra years. However in actuality, it’s most likely simply going to maintain hanging there within the closet, taking over house. Losing your time.

Emma: Bumming you out.

Elsie: Losing your time as a result of having a closet the place you must undergo issues that you just wouldn’t put on, it’s a waste of time. It’s like that in enterprise too. I believe generally we maintain issues hanging round as a result of we really feel like we’ve already invested in it or already put time or cash, power, no matter, into it.

Emma: Yeah. So that you’re like, I’ve to maintain going as a result of I’ve already invested my time, my cash, no matter. We’re type of into Star Trek Subsequent Technology proper now. That’s our nighttime watch. I assumed you’d have an interest. So this episode we watched final night time, I promise this relates, the parents on the Enterprise are battling this robotic that’s attempting to kill them. There’s no must know the entire episode. What occurs is each time they encounter it, they defeat it. They blow it up with their phasers or no matter. However every time it comes again, it’s slightly bit smarter. And I believe you need to take into consideration that once you’re like, oh, I failed. oh, I’ve to start out over. It’s like, no, you’re only a robotic. That’s didn’t work. Strive once more. And earlier than you realize it, you’re going to be undefeatable since you accepted all the fails as simply the method of getting higher and higher. Be the robotic. 

Elsie: I really like you a lot proper now. That’s really some like, I don’t know, sixth grade instructor that you just’re giving out and I adore it. 

Emma: Boldly go the place nobody has gone earlier than. 

Elsie: Okay. I’ve yet one more enterprise recommendation factor. So I do know I’ve mentioned this earlier than many, many occasions in our podcasts, but it surely’s the one for me. It’s the one. And simply in case there’s a couple of individuals right here who’re new, who haven’t listened to our podcast for 150 episodes or no matter. 193? What? Oh my god. How lengthy have we been doing this? We’re getting near 200. Wow. 

Emma: We gotta do one thing. 

Elsie: My guess was approach off. So, we should always have a celebration. Ship us what sort of occasion you suppose we should always have. Alright, so my pal Carter Bryant informed me this recommendation after I was very, very broke. It was type of in my first iteration of beginning shops, and I needed to Etsy. I used to be simply looking for a approach to pay all my payments and come up with the money for to stay. He informed me that I wanted to consider our enterprise as a desk with 4 legs. What you’re doing now might be one of many legs however you should have three extra. So by the years, we start to construct these and having our web site makes cash. We’ve our books that after we had been writing them earned cash, not as a lot now. 

Emma: Now we get these candy six greenback checks within the mail. 

Elsie: We’ve had our app firm and I might consider a pair extra, however like, no matter we’ve made the 4 legs. 

Emma: The factor you’re listening to proper now could be one among our legs now. 

Elsie: Examine, test, test. Okay. So yeah, having the 4 legs and so they don’t all must be huge. They don’t all must be like a most important earnings. It might simply be like 4 items of 1 pie. However the factor that’s lovely about it’s that if and when, I’d say when, it’s time so that you can pivot or one among them all of the sudden flops, that occurs generally in life. We had it occur final yr with our sponsor program. We’re doing so good for like 10 years after which unexpectedly we had no sponsors. And if we might have relied on that solely, 

Emma: it could have shut our doorways a very long time in the past.

Elsie: It could have killed our enterprise. However having these 4 legs, and I consider this as a very good tip for private finance too. Simply 4 totally different, one might be your financial savings. One might be your earnings you earn each month. One might be your retirement account, issues like that. That’s my recommendation that basically saved me. It modified my life. And so I’ve to repeat it as a lot as potential simply in case there’s a youthful one that is like me on the market, who’s getting began and must construct their 4 legs. 

Emma: I adore it. Subsequent up is finest recommendation that we’ve gotten about motherhood or parenting on the whole. Oh, possibly you need to go first this time. 

Elsie: I have a very good one. So I believe it was by Instagram after we had been about to undertake our first daughter so about six years in the past, I believe I wrote like, what’s your finest parenting recommendation you’ve ever acquired or what’s parenting recommendation you need me to listen to or one thing like that. I can’t keep in mind, however I simply keep in mind that my one pal, Tara, despatched me the recommendation that was be very fast to apologize to your youngsters. I keep in mind on the time not being a mother but, and that is laughable to me now, however it is vitally honest. I couldn’t think about what I would wish to apologize for. I couldn’t think about a time after I could be making a mistake as a result of I used to be simply so, so able to be a mother. And it was just like the factor I wished greater than something on this planet. The best way that you just really feel proper earlier than you turn out to be a mum or dad. Now that I’ve been a mother for six years, I utterly perceive her recommendation and I can see the way it’s for positive the perfect parenting recommendation I’ve ever acquired, as a result of I believe that each mum or dad goes to make errors all through your day, possibly each day. You’re going to make huge and small errors and having the willingness and the attention to apologize rapidly and to be humble about it has made such a distinction for me. And so I believe that’s the perfect recommendation I’ve acquired. 

Emma: I adore it. Additionally simply letting your child as they age see you be human and make errors and settle for it and rapidly say, sorry, I believe is de facto highly effective. Typically like being a human round your child. I believe it, as a result of like I’ve heard mother and father say, I believe our pal, Elise, she was like be certain to learn in entrance of your youngsters after they become old, not as a child essentially, however be sure that they see you doing the issues that you just’re enthusiastic about, issues that you just love. They see every little thing. They know what’s up. So be sure to learn round them or no matter, like just be sure you and your companion, when you have a companion, you each do chores and also you each tackle issues in order that they know that that’s regular and that’s good. All of the issues of being a human. It’s truly terrifying to be a human in entrance of different individuals, although, too, at occasions. It means being flawed, and it means being not ok in some areas. That’s truly okay. And also you need your child to know that it’s okay in the event that they’re not ok, in air quotes, in some areas.

Elsie: My therapist at all times says that your youngsters don’t want an ideal mother, which implies a lot. It may be so laborious generally. I believe remembering that, like, it’s extra vital for them to see you behave the way in which you need to behave within the huge image than to attempt to be good each single day. Like nobody’s, nobody’s good. 

Emma: Try to be first rate, not good. Be a very good individual. Don’t be an ideal individual. I really like that. 

Elsie: What’s the perfect recommendation you’ve acquired? 

Emma: So I wrote down two issues. One’s sensible and one’s extra huge image life factor, however numerous variations of primarily be current together with your youngsters and benefit from the second and plenty of variations of it goes quick or it feels lengthy, but it surely goes by actually quick and also you’ll cherish the occasions and all these issues. I stay it, the extra I’m like, oh yeah, all this cliche recommendation is completely true and 100% correct. And I really feel it in my soul, although all of it appears so cliche and I adore it. I truly suppose I’m not the perfect at residing within the second. I’m a really, like, ahead. I’m very objective oriented. I’m at all times engaged on the subsequent factor. I believe that’s a part of why it’s simpler for me to fail. Like we had been speaking about within the enterprise recommendation, as a result of I’m type of like, that’s the previous. Who cares? I’m working ahead to the long run. Like, that’s what I’m like. So I do really feel like being a mother, I’ve gotten higher at this and I hope I proceed to get higher. Watching him play along with his Legos and noticing what his little legs seem like along with his little diaper as a result of that’ll be over in like a yr, most likely he’s already within the potty. Similar to all these items. It’s like, oh, it’s going to go by anytime. I’ve to scrub out his closet. He’s grown out of issues. I’m like, oh, he’s not going to put on this one ever once more. It’s too small. And identical to have all these moments of like, oh, you already grew out of that. I’m like a lot much less on my cellphone than I was. And I’m a lot extra like, let’s let life be boring. I simply need to watch my child play with Legos. That may be a good morning in my e book. Like that’s how I outline it. After which the sensible. And that is extra for newborns slash little youngsters, however we did sleep coaching, which there’s numerous alternative ways to do it and each child’s totally different. So I’m not going to faux like the way in which we did is the treatment all for each child ever. I simply raised one child so I don’t know. However we did slightly little bit of Babywise, which is a e book. Then additionally we did this on-line course known as Taking Cara Infants. The girl’s identify is Cara. So it’s like spelled taking Cara infants, the identify, these are actually useful to us. Oscar sleeps by the night time, very common on his naps, which is nice for daycare. It’s additionally nice, like on a regular basis. And it makes it the place when he’s at a grandma’s home or for touring, I really feel like all of us type of know what to anticipate extra. And I’m not very strict on very many issues as a mum or dad, however that’s most likely the primary factor I’m fairly strict about is ensuring he can go to mattress on time. Like I’ll go away a household operate within the center if it has gone too lengthy and it’s his bedtime and everyone understands. 

Elsie: That’s how we’re too. We’re very, a really scheduled household.

Emma: Yep. And I believe that’s been actually good for him and each child’s totally different, however for our son, I believe that has helped him quite a bit with development and conduct and identical to figuring out what to anticipate along with his day and that type of factor.

Elsie: Okay. The subsequent one is the perfect recommendation for all times. So mine is type of emo. 

Emma: You already know, life is emo. Let’s hear it. 

Elsie: Okay. Okay. So I don’t know when it began, however for some cause my husband and I began this factor after we, I believe after we had been courting so a very long time in the past and it’s type of like we attempt to envision that we’re waking up as our aged self and attempt to actually really feel how a lot you’ll need to stay a life or a day on this life now as the angle for residing a day. And he’s actually emo about it and I’m too. We’re undoubtedly in a season of parenting now that’s fairly exhausting and fairly full. It feels prefer it’s going actually quick and it looks like we’re drained on a regular basis. So it’s like an excellent time. Something that may make us decelerate and respect it and simply benefit from the little issues which might be lovely about every day or issues that I need to maintain on to. So yeah, that’s mine. 

Emma: I adore it. I had two issues, much less emo. So one is locate passions and pursue them. So that would imply hobbies. It might imply actually something however I believe it’s actually vital, particularly once you’re younger to be actually enthusiastic about one thing and it may be comedian books. It may be theater. It may be no matter, however identical to discover issues that basically excite you and analysis them and turn out to be a fan woman. If it’s one thing that you just’re gonna take part in then take part with all of your coronary heart. I simply suppose that that’s what life is perhaps for therefore like simply being a very passionate curious individual, in order that. Then the opposite one is to develop or construct or keep, no matter part you’re in, a very constructive and vital assist system in your life. A few of us get fortunate and we’re type of born with it. I used to be that approach. I’ve two fantastic mother and father and two superior siblings I’m actually shut with, however I’ve additionally grown that community over time and a few individuals must develop. There’s quite a bit. And it additionally is figure to take care of nice relationships and friendships and household relationships. Nevertheless it’s, once more, I believe possibly like what the purpose of life is perhaps slightly bit is having that assist system once you want it and being part of another person’s assist system after they want it. It’s simply particular and once you want it, it’s actually vital.

Elsie: That’s lovely.

Emma: It’s like a whole Swifty live performance, you realize, no matter your assist system. 

Elsie: I believe that’s fantastic recommendation. We’ve a listener query from Kendall. Are you able to share what podcasts you hearken to? So I’ll simply be trustworthy, I haven’t listened to a podcast shortly. So audiobook queen. I’m like, audiobook mother, like go loopy. I no less than pay attention to at least one to 2 audiobooks each week. So it’s like that’s all I do just about. Go for walks and hearken to audio books. And if I’ve slightly little bit of time in my day alone, audio e book, however the podcast that I take pleasure in most, my go to podcast, after I do hearken to them, I’ve three. I like, I’ll Educate You to be Wealthy Podcast, our pal Ramit Sethi’s podcast. It’s actually good. So the factor I like concerning the podcast, for those who comply with him on Instagram otherwise you’ve seen his present, I significantly suppose the podcast is like the perfect one. And the explanation why is as a result of it goes actually, actually in depth and it’s actually private with every {couples}. There’s kind of like monetary remedy with him, like a counseling session. They’re often actually trustworthy. I don’t understand how he does it, like how he will get individuals to be so open and trustworthy so seemingly quick. It’s very fascinating. My favourite episode ever was an episode a few girl who knew that she was going to die, probably throughout the subsequent 10 years. She had a sure situation that she probably wouldn’t have a protracted life. She was possibly in her forties, possibly early fifties and she or he had youngsters and she or he didn’t must work as a result of she additionally was a multimillionaire. And she or he couldn’t cease working and it was like such an fascinating, emotional, it was so nice. By the tip of it, I believe she was beginning to consider it slightly bit extra, but it surely was identical to the thoughts blocks that you just put up with, like why you are feeling like you must do issues a sure approach. That’s the factor I’ve liked most about studying from Ramit is that he teaches quite a bit concerning the emotional facet of cash and the psychological and kind of like for those who’re raised a sure approach with cash that may be laborious to alter over time, even when your circumstances change. So anyway, love that podcast. My second one is You’re Mistaken About. I’ve at all times listened to it since like Jessica Simpson period, keep in mind when throughout COVID they had been doing episodes about that e book. I’ve at all times liked it since then. And I simply suppose that it’s a fantastic podcast. After which my third one is Elise Will get Artful. Our pal, Elise has a podcast when individuals at all times ask me like, what’s a podcast that’s kind of like your podcast. That’s most likely like the perfect one I’d suggest. I don’t actually know. I haven’t actually heard plenty of podcasts which might be much like ours which might be nonetheless at present making new episodes.

Emma: Yeah. John and Sherry’s. Thanks quite a bit.

Elsie: All of us need it again, however we get it. John and Sherry’s podcast, Younger Home Love was our inspiration after we first began. Should you simply need an previous podcast that you would be able to like, it has plenty of episodes, you may marathon it and it’s nice too. So additionally our pal Andi has a podcast known as Your WooWoo Greatest Good friend and I really like the title. I’ve been a visitor on it earlier than and I’d undoubtedly go on it once more. It’s a really religious podcast. So she teaches me just about every little thing I’ve ever realized about human design, astrology, and previous lives. Should you’re concerned about any subject like that, she has a brand new e book out. We’ll hyperlink all of that in our podcast present notes at this time. However yeah, I undoubtedly suggest her podcast to simply type of like scratch that itch for those who’re somebody who has it.

Emma: I really like that podcast and I additionally acquired a duplicate of her e book and I adore it and in addition Oscar loves it. It has little illustrations in it right here and there.

Elsie: It’s Elemental. 

Emma: Sure, I really like all those you talked about too. So I cannot remention them since you’ve already heard however for information slash cash stuff, I wish to hearken to Planet Cash and The Day by day, which I imagine are each NPR podcasts, I need to say. Then for popular culture stuff, Elsie already talked about You’re Mistaken About, however I additionally actually like If Books May Kill, which has Michael Hobbes and in addition Upkeep Section, which is type of about weight loss plan tradition and different issues too. However I really like these podcasts. They’re actually enjoyable. I actually love them for the hosts. I really like the host. And I believe they’re actually humorous and fascinating and informative. These are additionally areas that like, I don’t actually know that a lot about, so it’s enjoyable to study. For homicide stuff, my prime two are Prison, which is type of a random one. They don’t simply do serial killers. They do all kinds of very random issues, like there’s one episode that I liked that’s from years in the past now and it was a few shark that stored consuming individuals as a result of it was unlawful for the shark to kill individuals. You already know what I imply? So it’s identical to any crime anyway, so it’s very fascinating. Generally it has people who find themselves impersonating a celeb or financial institution robbers or somebody who acquired away with some type of fraud factor within the 1800s prefer it’s very random and it’s actually enjoyable. The host is superb. I really like her voice. In order that, after which my different favourite homicide one is My Favourite Homicide. I’m a murderino, clearly, for those who’re not, get with it. After which the one factor I used to be going to say is for extra religious slash really feel good. I actually love this podcast. My pal Madison does one known as Every little thing Belongs. She has all kinds of various company, so you may choose an episode primarily based on one thing you is perhaps concerned about. However even those the place it’s simply her speaking by issues like her morning routine or her tea ritual or various things like that, I really like them and I believe she’s simply very all the way down to earth and fascinating.
