This week for our 200th episode celebration Rebecky and Katie combined forces to surprise Emily with sweet sentiments, cutting sarcasm and a little bit of encouragement. It was so fun to take some time to reflect on the past 4 years. Thank you all SO much for being here and I’m so glad I get to celebrate with you!
If someone asked you “Do you know your number?”, would you know what they mean? They’re talking about the enneagram, of course! If you like personality tests, you’ll love this episode! Rebecky brought on the first ever Problem Solved guest, Lauren, who is an enneagram coach. She typed Rebecky live on the pod and helped us understand other enneagram numbers in the process. Rebecky can’t decide how she feels about her number, but thinks that it’s probably the worse case scenario. Emily gets some clarification on EXACTLY what her number is because finding out her perfect number is the right thing to do. Any guesses on what numbers they are?!
Do you think you’re hard to work with? Do you think you come on too strong? We talk through a few of these things and share some friendship and workplace insecurities. We also talk about the loveliness of Emilio Gavin and Rebecky’s pause from her million-dollar corporation + her new stay-at-home status. Rebecky shares more about her workout routine and why it’s working for her right now. It’s great! We had too many problems to solve and they ranged from morning sickness to dog issues. We loved this one and we’re so happy to share it with you!

In this riveting episode Rebecca and I start off by sharing what we've been up to lately. I shared a little about my experience at Revelation Wellness Instructor Training and how I recently went to Glamour Shots with my family for family portraits.
Rebecca shared that she's been struggling with being a homeschool mom and me and everyone else on the live Instagram video gave our hearty agreement that being a mom of any kind can be a stinking beating at points.
