Hey guys, Chris and Melissa back with another Family Brand Podcast! In our last episode, we mentioned how investing in yourself is a game-changer when it comes to improving your marriage. Well, today we wanted to dig a little deeper into what investing in yourself actually looks like. 

You might be saying to yourself “We don’t have the finances for that” or “How would I even start?” and we get it! There was a point when we were separated where the most we could do was to invest in our time, but like we said just that little change made a world of difference. 

Listen in as we talk about how it all started with taking responsibility for ourselves and our marriage, and the small things we did to get the ball rolling. From scribbling what we liked on butcher paper to finding a counselor that helped us figure out what we really wanted in life we can confidently say there is no investment too small. Because when it all comes down to it, the more you start to act like you’re worth it, the more your life will begin to grow. Heads up! This kind of investment is contagious so don’t be surprised if the whole family starts jumping in on it too! 

Everyone’s journey is different but we hope this episode empowered you to start taking the steps (no matter how small) you need to invest in yourself. To connect with us on Instagram, check out the links below!
