You know from the second you hit play on Jake Minton's YouTube video from his TedX SMU talk that you are going to get something good. The story on how he got to that speech is awesome. We talked about it. More than the talk on how he got to the Tedx stage is how he lives his life everyday. How he challenges young children in the most crucial times in their lives to think "outside the box." In a world where the facts show that men still dominate women in several aspects of life, Jake offers a fresh perspective for all to consider. By using space travel as a platform, Jake expands on some of the staggering historical facts that outline a few struggles for women, but also offers a solution on how we can make it better. So what is your role as a feminist? Why does the word have such a negative connotation to it? The original meaning behind the word's creator was meant to create inclusivity and equality. What if we got back to the root of why the word was created and we all took responsibility for being mindful of feminism? We might just change the world! Enjoy the show!

This episode will give you a solution on how to properly incentivize and educate your kids to do daily tasks around the house to help instill structure and organization within your house.

What feelings do you get when I say the words school mornings or school nights? For me, I feel anxiety, stress, and complete exhaustion! Last school year, our family was really struggling with establishing routines during these times of day. We needed something that really worked and incentivized our kids to want to work with us, and not against us. So we did some research on Pinterest and other blogs for help. What we found was that though there is a lot of information out there, nothing seemed specific enough for us to devise a plan that fit our family’s needs. So we ourselves went to the drawing board. Enter Real IronDAD Cool Coins.

Kombucha is a pretty controversial drink. Is it healthy for you? Is it bad for you? Should you be drinking it everyday? I have to say I am not 100% sure on my stance, but there is some pretty good research out there to suggest both sides. You have to make your own decision. Personally, I love it and so do many of the folks that I idolize in the plant-based movement. However you feel about it, I am happy to present this interview with local Orlando Kombucha producer, Mark Bevilaqua, who owns Farm Boy Produce. He is a former triathlete and very knowledgable about this mysterious drink. I hope you will listen with an open mind and give it a sip!

It is 2015 and you know what that means! Time to buy a gym membership that you will be motivated about for approximately two weeks and then realize that you are too busy to make it. After that you will forget to cancel the membership because you signed a contract or somehow justify that it is an allowable expense because you “might” go someday down the line when your schedule is not as busy. I have some sad news for you…you can stay in pretty good shape without having to join that expensive gym. In this episode, certified fitness trainer, Ryan Oman, will give you some tips on how to stay as healthy as possible during your busy life as a parent.
