Big Problems, Little Problems with Ben Feller

Big Problems, Little Problems with Ben Feller

May 21, 2022

Ben is the former Chief White House Correspondent for the AP during the Bush and Obama years.

Now, he's writing about his personal passion: being a dad. His new children's book is called Big Problems, Little Problems. It is the story of how a dad teaches his son to solve the daily challenges of life – and, in turn, the surprising ways in which a child can teach a grown-up to remember what is important, too.

Written with lessons that apply to any family with young children, this book is distinctively told from a father's point of view and built on how a son and dad listen to and learn from each other. This is a tale about perspective, patience, and the ability to conquer frustration no matter what the problem!

The book is currently scheduled for release in May 2022 from Tilbury House Publishers and is available now for pre-order on Amazon and at many other booksellers.

Please check out Ben's book here https://www.amazon.com/Big-Problems-Little-Ben-Feller/dp/088448890X

How To Show Up For Your Life with Andrew Gil

How To Show Up For Your Life with Andrew Gil

December 29, 2021

Today, I'm joined by Andrew Gil.  Here's Andrew's bio in his own words:

"I’ve lived a colorful life full of experiences that have taught me that life keeps coming, and the “tools” we choose will determine how we get to live. Self-Awareness, Curiosity, Empathy, and Gratitude are tools. So are Disassociation, Anger, and Substance Abuse. We get to choose our tools.

At the end of 2013, I found myself in a place where I needed to let go of the tough guy that was fighting inside me and consider a different way to live, or I was about to lose the only thing I ever truly wanted, my family.

I’m Jenn’s husband and the father of two amazing teenagers who live life without fear of how I’ll react to life’s challenges; that’s how I gauge my success. 

I’ve been sober since 2013 that’s when I began the process of building my Emotional Intelligence with purpose. 

When I put a process in place for understanding my feelings it changed everything for me. It changed everything at home, and as a by-product, you can bet your ass it changed everything at work too. Being curious about what I react to also allows me to better understand the emotions of those around me.

Like everyone, I’m a work in progress, sorting through my emotional triggers, but I can now tell if my emotions have hijacked my thoughts and actions."
