Where does all the money go? How do you save enough money to be able to eat more than ramen at the end of the month? Budgeting is hard but you got this. Caleb, Shawna and John are here to offer a helping hand and a few strategies that will help you stretch your money a little further.
It can be embarrassing to admit that you need help, but there’s no reason to be afraid to ask for it. Caleb, Shawna, and John talk about why they struggle to ask for help and share stories of times they learned they couldn’t do it alone. They also discuss apartment living, how to meet your neighbors and weather or not you need to wash your pillow.
Episode 5 - Painting, Parenting, and Professional Networking - 10/14/19
What even is networking? How do you make a good first impression? What do you do after you give someone your business card? Caleb, Shawna and John aren’t expert networkers, but this week they’ll share how they’ve taken some of the stress out of making professional connections.
Who wouldn’t like a do-over? We’ve all missed a great job opportunity, ruined a promising relationship, or even just said something dumb that has stuck with us for years. You might not be able to go back, but you can move forward. This week, Caleb, Shawna, and John share some of their regrets and how they’ve learned to deal with them.
How much should you be spending on groceries? What do you do if your kids are having a melt down in the cereal isle? How do you deal with the emotional devastation of your milk going bad? Groceries are confusing and shopping for them can be hard, but you’ve got this. This week Caleb, Shawna and John are here to share what they’ve learned about concurring the produce isle, staying away from the sweets and checking out under budget and faster than ever.
The last thing anyone wants to think about after a long day of adulting is what they are making for dinner. This week Caleb, Shawna and John talk about their favorite ways to make cooking less intimidating and a lot more fun. They also talk share the struggles of finishing school, understanding insurance and making sure your car has working breaks.
I’m in my mid 20’s and constantly feel like I’m a 4-year-old pretending to be a grown-up. I am a single guy, but I try hard to make my apartment somewhat clean. When I’m not busy being Ryan Gosling's body double, I try to read deep philosophical texts, I enjoy the arts, rescuing and raising endangered rhinos and cooking gourmet meals. I may not have any money saved for my retirement, but at least I get my oil changed somewhat regularly. Now, that's an adulting win!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, mom to 3 amazing kiddos navigating through this up and down whirlwind called life as an ADULT! Join me in this journey of adulthood where every single day God humbles me as I try to figure out how to successfully "Adult" in-between tantrums, homework, housework, marriage, and motherhood all while trying to enjoy my coffee HOT! I may not always know what I am doing, but I am excited to share what I have learned!
I am the grizzly veteran of the Adulting crew. I just hit my peak performance years as a husband, athlete, broadcaster, and gaming on easy mode. A master Uno card player, I also enjoy bothering John about bad movies, cornhole domination and watching Premier League Soccer. Yet, as a first-time homeowner, I am quickly learning that somethings must be put aside for more important things. Like figuring out where that weird smell is coming from....
