When society told us to check a box, we panicked. But now, we celebrate!

For the second installment of this special two-part episode, Natalie and Jess discuss where they are headed. They talk about the future and the things they currently work on. In this episode, Natalie and Jess also share the lessons they learned along the way that now play a role in their married life.

Things Falling Into Place

It has been a year since Natalie started the podcast. Going forward, Jess is now a full-time co-producer of the show. Being tech-savvy himself, Jess will now be around to help with editing and backend stuff. Jess has been helping Natalie with editing since episode 56, and now he is getting the full gear. He has some ideas to add, especially with marketing, having fun, and being creative. Jess is passionate and innovative with technology from a digital standpoint, so he is excited to apply what he knows and learn along the way. Another thing that fits the puzzle is their Surf & Yoga Wellness Retreat, which will occur in December. It is definitely a “couple goal” achieved for Natalie and Jess as they integrated nature, travel, and wellness into one activity. Overall, they are now hand in hand in carrying out their passions and business in one.

Core Beliefs

Throughout their journey, Natalie and Jess had core beliefs that set the course they are headed. It becomes their foundation, but over time, it changes. For example, Jess shares that he once had socially acceptable core beliefs – climb the ladder, jump through hoops, and do a nine-to-five job. Getting into the corporate workplace is the norm, but confidence made Jess change these core beliefs. He believes that it is wrong to allow society to steer your course of action. Jess eliminated those beliefs for himself. Long story short, experience is one factor that will make or break a core belief. There is nothing wrong with dealing with changes as long as it is for the better.
