Episode 130: Early Dismissal Syndrome

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk about early dismissal syndrome. Modern dating – dating apps especially – have made us so fickle because we always believe there’s something better out there. So we’re always searching for something better… and yet, we’re more alone than ever.

Well, today I’m joined by LA matchmaker and good friend of mine, Julie Ferman, and we’re going to talk about why we seem to dismiss people so early… and why you should actually give the people you date a chance.

So join us for today’s reality check, rate and subscribe to the podcast, and be sure to check out Julie’s matchmaking services at http://www.julieferman.com/

Episode 129: The Universe Has a Secret for You

Subscribe & Listen:

Let me tell you a little secret that I know. If you ask the universe for something – anything in the world – there are only 3 responses it can give you: yes; yes, but not yet; and no, because you’re gonna get something better.

All you have to do is listen, have an abundant mindset, and be open to that message. Be open to the people and events the universe is putting in your life, and the lessons it’s trying to teach you. And that’s exactly what John Keegan and I are going to do today.

Episode 126: The Man on the Street

“The man on the street,” “the cute blonde from whole foods…” if you have a cell phone, it’s probably full of names like these. The names we give people. The things we identify them by.

Episode 123: Do You Lack a Moral Compass?

Subscribe & Listen:

I’ve spent this weekend at one of my bootcamps with my great friend and fellow dating coach, John Keegan. Now, a lot of people don’t get what we do here, which is NOT teaching guys how to lie to get women into bed.

We teach guys how to be moral in their relationships. How to have a moral compass. And I’ve gotta tell you, that’s something that’s really lacking in today’s culture.

So… are YOU lacking a moral compass? Find out here. Subscribe to, rate and share this episode in your podcatcher of choice, learn more about John at https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 122: The One Word That Will Make Any Woman Implode… But Why???

Subscribe & Listen:

Everyone should know this… there’s one word. On SPECIFIC word that makes women implode. And we won’t say it here, but everyone knows what it is. You can NEVER call a woman this word…

But what my guest John Keegan and I want to ask is, why? Of course you should try never to insult or hurt anyone, but what makes THIS word so special?

Well, help us figure it out on today’s reality check. Subscribe to, rate and share us with your friends, and check out John’s website at https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/

Subscribe & Listen:

I’m going to challenge you right now with an assumption. There are people in your life you CAN’T STAND. They’re idiots. They never listen.

But why? Why would you waste time with people who are so beneath you? It could be a friend, it could be your ex, it could even be your parents. And I’m going to show you today how to troubleshoot this “idiot list” and eliminate these people and the energy they bring into your life.

Episode 119: Fur Love is Not Real Love

Subscribe & Listen:

Last night, as I was watching the firework spectacle, I saw something interesting. And kind of sad. And it’s basically this: women and men more attached to their dogs, their furry little children, than to other people.

Fur love is not REAL love, people. And right now, I’m going to make a radical suggestion: you use it as a substitute for real love because it’s easier. It doesn’t require real vulnerability. And that’s why it’s not real love.
