Welcome to the DO THE WORK podcast. Each week we will bring you the foundational principles needed to navigate through the obstacles and opportunities of life.
In this episode of Do the Work, AZ and Carla are in the studio and discussing sexless marriages. Has the passion with your partner gone to the wind? The couple had their share of ugly times and would only connect intimately if they were drinking. Making your spouse feel sorry for you, using guilt or even using sex as a tool of leverage, are all signs of trouble. You need to be able to change for things to change; it isn’t easy but necessary. Stop trying to fix your marriage or end your marriage; realize that there is something within yourself that needs fixing. Mediocrity in marriage, your body, and your business are not okay; you need to level up in every area of your life.
In this episode of Do the Work, AZ is in the studio solo to talk to his boys about Carla and her upcoming Women’s Only Event. If you want your woman to start showing up powerfully, quit trying to make her happy. It is your job to be the best you to show up in your marriage and business. It is her job to make herself happy, be empowered and find her voice. This conference is for every woman, and it will improve your relationship. Life is powerful when there are no limits on the parameters of what you can accomplish as individuals and bring into the relationship.
In this episode of Do the Work, Carla addresses how parenting is hard and judgemental; People are always shaming other parents. The pressure of the perfect first-day social media post, kids perfectly dressed standing in front of a chalkboard announcing the excitement of the day. The reality; juggling the house, job, school shopping, doctors appointments, figuring out the scheduling challenges; the hustle of getting ready for school.
In this episode of Do The Work, AZ and Carla are in the studio discussing Trolling. A recent run-in with an internet troll has given Carla the ability to exercise her power and show that you shouldn’t mess with a strong woman. If you are obsessed with bringing others down, expending all of your energy on negativity, you risk running into that individual who will stop you in your tracks. Focus your time and effort on fixing your insecurities and issues, and keep your fucking opinions to yourself. Don’t give others the satisfaction of drawing you down to their level. Stop suppressing, delaying and looking for acceptance. Steamroll that shit and move forward.
In this episode of Do the Work, Carla is solo in the studio and ready to get started. Shame is conditioned and comes out from somewhere in our lives; It overtakes us. Shame caused Carla to be hateful, because of jealousy, and comparison; we create the stories of shame. We show up this way in our relationship and our business because we cannot overcome shame. Why do you feel shame? Are you asking yourself the powerful questions? Can you feel the success? Are you living in the space that was created by shame? You need to dig deep, deep enough to find the source; quit creating the stories in your head to validate the shame. Free yourself, gain power and feel amazing by releasing yourself from everything that is stopping you from being you.
n this episode of Do the Work, AZ and Carla discuss how significant changes are coming their way and to this podcast. Although being pumped up for what is happening, they need not get overwhelmed and focus on the small tasks each day. Putting in the reps every day has put them where they are. Looking back at where they were, fuels them forward to be where they want to be.
In this episode of Do the Work, Carla is in the studio alone using those pipes God gave her to share her story about all the Reps in her life that she has done to get to where she is. Carla chose to be all in and if you want to be all in you need to be all in. She has suffered through failed businesses and failing marriage, and she shared it all and by doing that removed all the fear. Don’t let people live your happiness for you.
In this episode of Do the Work, AZ and Carla tackle the topic of Agendas. They are on everybody’s mind. A compliment, an email, a text message rarely comes without an agenda attached to it. Whether it’s yours or someone else’s, your time is the most valuable asset. You need to learn to manage others people’s agendas, so those meeting that isn’t a priority won’t manipulate your time. This is the difference between people who get things done and those that don’t. Stop pleasing other people and please yourself.
