On the G&E Show this week it was all about the fans! You guys hit me with questions on relationships, business, being a woman, and much more – real questions, real answers.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR ROLE
Something that Grant and I do well, is delegate who does what in our relationship. When you have two alphas’ in a relationship, not going to lie, it can be a constant battle (because love is a battlefield, am I right?). You must be willing to let go of the reigns a bit; setting the other person free to do what they do best. That’s not to say, you don’t take their thoughts and feelings into consideration, you do, and you should, but that role is yours and you should be able to make the final call. There is no need to run every move by Grant, just like he doesn’t run everything by me, but we’re good that way. We understand our roles on the team, and we play them well. In other words, you’re not going to like everything but just roll with it!
IS IT OK FOR YOU TO OUTSHINE YOUR HUSBAND?
Abso-freakin-lutely! Yes, of course it’s ok to outshine your partner at times, but we never forget the foundation. We are a TEAM. When I shine, he shines. When he wins, I win etc.…. Throughout this journey together, we will each have our moments to shine. The other person needs to sit back, relax and enjoy the show. This concept becomes easier to understand once you know the following:
- Who you are as a couple
- What your goals are as couple
- What your brand is as a couple
- Let go of the Ego
At the end of the day, we will do whatever, in whatever situation that’s going to be the most optimal for us and our survival. Period.
WHAT’S YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT THUS FAR?
Here’s where it got real. My proudest moment in my entire life, was when I delivered two girls, naturally. Let me say that again for the people in the back, NATURAL. No drugs, in my home, no epidural, nada. After getting through that, I know myself as a human being. It helped me find strength within myself that has transferred into everything I do in life. If I can muscle through that, I can push my way through anything (pun intended).
