PODCAST: We Sowed A Lot Of Oats

The wackadoos are back with another episode because we're just never going to run out of things to say over here. This week, we're sharing how we really feel about tour, explaining/wondering what it's like to work for us, and trying to manage all. the. things. that we're dealing with at home. We also offer some life advice (take it or leave it 🤣) and communication tips, including our thoughts on virginity and the history of our exes and oats.

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

  • Status quo is lovely but status quo doesn't get you anywhere. If you are going through controversy or experiencing hurt or pain or another form of change that feels terrible, remember that it’s moving you forward. What is going on in our life right now is a forced growth that we can't stop, and it sucks and it's shitty and it's not a great feeling, but it's important because it's moving us in a different direction in business and in parenting. If you have that feeling, try to remind yourself that although it may feel bad in the moment, it's not actually bad thing.

  • Go experience what you don't like so you can appreciate what you do like. If you settle on something right off the bat, you miss out on the opportunity to make mistakes and those mistakes are what help you realize what a good thing is when you have it.

  • In business and in life, you only get out of it what you put into it.

  • I don't understand why someone else's way has to be better or different. We shouldn’t have an opinion on the way someone does things, because if it's your choice and it works for you, who the fuck cares?

PODCAST: Have A Little Faith

We're back from home from tour (for a week) and chatting about the mental load our families face when we're away, which honestly just gets put right back onto us. In this episode, we're sharing our realization that parenting just isn't cute anymore. Plus, we're answering your questions about getting caught up in the comparison trap, how to get over feelings of intimidation, how we choose our team members, and what our biggest roadblock has been so far. Of course we end things on a less serious note, with a convo about pound town and "O" faces.

This week’s podcast is brought to you by…

FabFitFun!! We're a #FabFitFunPartner because it's such a natural fit for us. FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that offers full size beauty, fashion, home, fitness and wellness products (valued at over $200+) for only $49.99!! We didn't even know how much we would love it until we actually got it.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

  • How do you stay in our own lane and not get caught in the comparison trap? Everyone gets caught up in the comparison trap every once in a while. I don't think there is anything wrong with looking at other people and being inspired. It’s important to change your comparison into gratitude and appreciate what someone else has done. You can celebrate who they are and what they've accomplished without minimizing who you are and what you've done. There is nothing wrong with comparison if your feelings are of inspiration rather than jealousy. You're in control and you can flip the script from "Wow, I can't believe I haven't done that." to "Wow, that is so amazing that they can accomplish that." If you say it out loud and say it enough, you'll start to change your attitude.

  • How do you initially get started in something that you find so intimidating? If you're sitting there feeling intimidated about starting something, just do it! GET IN IT and it will become a lot less intimidating than if you were to continue looking at it from the outside. If you're living it, you'll learn it so much faster.

  • How do you get people to jump on board with you? You have to think that what you're doing is the best thing ever. If you don't believe it, no one else is going to believe it. You have to think that what you're doing is meaningful and that the product or service you offer is something that everyone (or your target market) truly needs. Lead by example and show your passion.

  • How do you come up with so many posts each day? Share what you're feeling and don't overthink it!

  • How do you decide who to hire? We've never asked for a resume. For us, it's not about having a skill, it's about being able to learn a skill. If you have an open mind and a positive attitude and you work hard to figure shit out, that's what we want. It’s not about having a background in something, it's about having the same outlook on life as us: Can you make a negative into a positive? Can you take feedback and learn new things? That’s what’s important to us. As for the brands who choose to work with us, people hire us for our energy!

  • What's the biggest roadblock that you've had to push through? People didn't take us seriously in a time when growing a business through social media wasn't really a big thing. That was a major challenge for us. Everyday is a roadblock, and keeping this community alive is something we need to continue to do as we push through.

Podcast: Life Is Weird, Guys

We're getting real deep about life and how it changes from childhood to adulthood to the point when we're ready to kick the bucket. We don't know why life is the way it is but we sure talk a lot about it in this episode. We also get into the details of a private school application gone way wrong, which is likely due to the fact that we are so NOT rule followers. Seriously, listen all the way through to find out what ridiculous and unwritten rules we've broken.

And this week’s podcast is brought to you by…

We're a #FabFitFunPartner, y'all! We love it. FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that shows up at your door in a beautiful box that contains full size beauty, fashion, home, fitness and wellness products (valued at over $200+) for only $49.99!!

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

BUSINESS TAKEAWAYS

  • In entrepreneurship and motherhood, everything that you don't already know seems overwhelming.

  • When you first become an entrepreneur, you’re so desperate to do anything to make it work that part of you gives up your integrity. We said “yes” to everything at the detriment of our sanity and our families, but we knew we had to go through it and that it was the right thing to do. Now we have more of a voice, and we've earned the right to say “no.”

  • Because we have so many kids and we take time away from them, we cannot attend all of the events that we used to go to. We've earned the respect from different advertising agencies, clients, and PR agencies because of all that we did back then. So now if we're not doing it, it's because it doesn't make sense, not because we're being divas. We don't have time or we're physically not around to do it all. We used to take time out just to prove that we're hard workers but now we show our hard work in the actual campaigns that we sign and agree to do instead of doing extra shit.

  • Our job is both shitty but amazing. The tradeoff of having a fun job is that we don't get to have a lot of personal fun. When we come home, our time and energy goes right to the kids and then whatever's leftover is for the husbands. This is just the way life is right now.

  • Little rules are a waste of time in life and they also fuck with creativity and cause depression. That being said, a lot of people feel safe with strict guidelines and rules. Some people love rules and some hate them.

#MOMTRUTH MOMENTS

  • I believe there is a shift coming and people are understanding that it’s better to make the most out of people rather than make them conform. If you can bring out their inner person, you are way ahead. And that goes for parents, too. If we have higher expectations of our children than we do for ourselves or our partners, that's fucked. Kids aren't allowed to have a bad mood or make mistakes, and we ride them so hard rather than give them a moment to breathe. But they have more going on in their day than we have in our day, because we have more choice and options. We can take a minute, but they don't get to take a minute.

INSPIRATIONAL TAKEAWAYS

  • If you are a boss or in a position of power, do your best to make people feel at ease rather than to fear you. Be someone who people can talk to rather than be afraid of. People learn differently, and that's not just in school. Your job as a boss is to get them to be the most productive they can be. And if you're a teacher, and a kid is failing, get them the support they need rather than just giving them an F.

#MOMTRUTHS: Date Night

Podcast: Kick Out The Negativity

In this week's episode, we chat about life on tour (while trying to organize the logistics of travel, childcare, etc. as we record...) and how our husbands and family feel about us heading out on the road. We also talk more about putting what we want out into the universe in order to make things happen, and how important it is to replace negative thoughts with positivity and gratitude. This was probably our fav podcast to date, so make sure you give it a listen!

This week’s podcast is brought to you by…

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

BUSINESS TAKEAWAYS

  • When it comes to touring, we feel less anxiety than we use to. We've decided not to over-stress and just go and figure it out when we get there. Travelling for work is not something you can control, so if you're not able to change it, why stress it? We do it so much now and it's part of our life, so rather than worry about it, we just let it go.

#MOMTRUTH MOMENTS

  • Your child's behaviour when you're away is likely the exact same as their behaviour when you're with them, so don't feel guilty. They're not acting a certain way because you're gone, they're simply acting the way they usually do and you're just not there to manage it.

INSPIRATIONAL TAKEAWAYS

  • If you're ever having a bad moment, start being grateful and spreading the positivity around you rather than sitting and festering in stress and negativity. If you're ever stressed, turn it into gratitude and start talking about what you're thankful for because your mind is that powerful.

  • We live by our feelings rather than by what we should be doing.

PODCAST: Entrepreneurs Are Not Predictable

In this week's episode, we cover many different topics - from jealousy and competition, to hair obsessions and the people we admired growing up, to a dramatic Dateline episode and parenting conundrums. But the biggest takeaway for all y'all listening, is to break the rules in life, in motherhood and in business. It's not about rebelling, it's about following your heart rather than your brain.

This week’s podcast is brought to you by…

FabFitFun!! We're a #FabFitFunPartner because we're all about their brand. FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that offers full size beauty, fashion, home, fitness and wellness products (valued at over $200+) for only $49.99!!

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

BUSINESS TAKEAWAYS

  • People always ask how we grew our business, but there is no formula to be an entrepreneur. If you're starting a company with an idea for a product or service that is not an already proven success, then you really have to go at it alone.

  • Entrepreneurs change their mind a lot, and they often don't have an explanation for it, they're just basing their decisions off of feelings.

  • You can't apply what we did to grow our business to any other situation. Our advice can help you in your life and in your business relationships, but in terms of formulating a business plan based on what we've done, our journey is like none other and that's what yours should be too.

  • One piece of advice we can give to people who are starting a business, and you can either watch us do it or hear us say it, is to not give a fuck what other people are thinking and doing and to not follow in somebody else's path.

  • Everybody has something they're good at. If you're passionate about something, you will make money naturally. If you do what you're passionate about, you will be the best in that field, and you will rise amongst everybody else. And because you enjoying doing it, and it doesn't feel like work, you'll do it all the time.

  • Don't sit around and wait for people to contact you, because it won't get you anywhere. Take matters into your own hands and shit will start happening. People are busy and opportunities won't just land in your lap if you don’t create it yourself. If you think you're not successful because people aren't reaching out or aren't responding to you, be persistent and consistent - continue to call them and email them. What do you have to lose?

#MOMTRUTH MOMENTS

  • Tricky behaviours are often masked in different ways, and you really can't personalize your kid's behaviour and make it about you. They don't set out to be jerks to you. It's not about your kid being a jerk in life, it's about your kid having a moment of being a jerk. Ignore it, don't give them the time and watch to see what happens. It's so hard not to give attention to the negative behaviour, but just try not to engage in the battlefield.

  • The key to parenting is to do less, and that's not being lazy, it's making your kids more capable.

INSPIRATIONAL TAKEAWAYS

  • When you're feeling overwhelmed, think about what you're grateful for and often that takes the dialogue out of your own head and puts it into something else.

  • Fuck the rules sometimes. In motherhood and entrepreneurship, you have to follow your heart, not your brain. Let go of the rules; challenge them. But don't do it just to be a rebel, do it because you feel that what you believe is right.

  • When you become okay with what you're doing for you, people will become okay with you the way that you are.

PODCAST: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

Our podcast is like a best friend - it's conversations we've been having for so many years that we're now sharing with all of you. Although we can get crazy and go off the rails, we do talk a lot about business and we reflect on where we've come from, how we got here and our goals for the future. Everything we say can be related to any kind of relationship whether you're listening as a business owner, entrepreneur, mom, wife or friend. In this week's episode, we talk about making mistakes and the importance of exposing your weaknesses and knowing when and how to apologize. We also share some eye-opening situations we've experienced. In some cases, we’ve had to swallow our balls, and other times, we’ve needed to speak up when something didn't feel right.

This week’s podcast is brought to you by…

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

BUSINESS TAKEAWAYS

  • I believe I was one of these people who was afraid of the "no," but now we get so many "no's" that we’ve become comfortable with "no" really fast. Because we've never been on this trail that's easy, we like the uncomfortable versus the comfortable.

  • There have been multiple times when we've entered into a partnership and the brand changes the original ask. We could have walked from those contracts but we always finish on top and people would say we finish last because we swallow our balls, we swallow our pride, and we'll do what we need to do. Being difficult is not worth our reputation. We pride ourselves on showing up and doing well, so when we work with difficult people, we carry on, we deliver and then we move on and don't look back.

  • To be an entrepreneur, you have to be able to check yourself regularly. You have to be able to keep going and move forward, but you also need a lot of self-reflection because there are going to be times when something isn't working and you need to re-evaluate.

  • People are afraid to be wrong, but what's the worst thing that can happen if you're wrong? Just admit to it and fix it. If you apologize for being wrong, people can't fight you on that. Exposing your weakness and apologizing can often get you further when you're working with other people.

#MOMTRUTH MOMENTS

  • You can have a loud, strong voice, and it doesn't have to be rude. This goes for our daughters, our children, people who have business partners or bosses: you don't just have to go along with things. Sometimes you have to swallow your balls, but if something isn't right and you know better, you are allowed to speak up. Lose the attitude and just place the information down. Not only will you gain respect from the people around you, but you'll make yourself proud.

  • If you ever fuck up with your kids, apologize. If they don't see you apologize, they're never going to apologize.

  • If you want to be a good entrepreneur, you have to get good at building relationships. If you’re really smart but you’re an a**hole, you'll fail. So keep this in mind, moms - if you have a kid who is a genius at relationships but not great at school, they're probably going to be successful.

INSPIRATIONAL TAKEAWAYS

  • Sometimes the world lets you make small mistakes to prevent you from making bigger ones later. And that's very kind of the world, to test you a little bit on something small. It gives you a whisper and you can either choose to listen to that whisper or forget it.

  • Mistakes are things you regret and eye-openers are things that give you perspective into a situation.

  • If you want to understand yourself, you have to listen to the feelings within you that either feel gross, uncomfortable, awkward, happy. Don't shut those feelings out, listen to them.

  • In life and in relationships, make sure you understand that you can be wrong and you're not a bad person. You can fuck up and you're not a bad person. You can fail and you're not a bad person.

RECIPE: Turkey Chili (with two special ingredients)
Chili.jpg

Nat made this WW zero point turkey chili the other night but didn’t have a lot of the ingredients that they called for in the recipe, so she added a little extra to make it her own! It actually turned out amazinggg, so we thought we’d share it with you!

If you were watching our insta stories, you know there was one secret ingredient mixed in but keep reading for the other 😉

INGREDIENTS

  • 600g lean ground turkey breast

  • Onions (white and green) - chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves - chopped finely

  • Carrots - diced

  • Celery - diced

  • 1 can of corn

  • Olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons of taco seasoning

  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp dried chili flakes

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp of Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base

  • 400g can of diced tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 tbsp tomato sauce

  • Small piece of dark chocolate (brings a sweetness/richness and lessens the acidity from the tomatoes)

  • Half a beer

  • 240g kidney beans (1 x 400g can - drained) Ps. didn’t have this in the cupboard but it’s optional anyways… Nat’s kids prefer chili without the beans!

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 180°C fan / Gas 4

  2. Line the bottom of a baking tray with parchment paper and add the ground turkey. Cook on the middle shelf for 20 - 30 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes or so (and breaking it up if needed) until browned.

  3. Add olive oil to a large non-stick skillet or frying pan. Add the chopped onions and saute over a medium/low heat until they become soft and brown.

  4. Add the chopped garlic, carrots, celery and corn and saute for another 1-2 minutes.

  5. Stir in the taco seasoning, dried chili flakes and black pepper.

  6. Add the browned meat and mix in a half can of beer.

  7. Stir in the Better Than Bouillon, chopped tomatoes and the tomato paste. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil.

  8. Stir in the drained kidney beans (optional) and reduce heat to a simmer.

  9. Mix in a small piece of dark chocolate.

  10. Simmer for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened.

And there you have it - a delicious chili that the whole family will love… well your kids might only love it because as soon as you tell them there is chocolate in it, they think they’re eating candy for dinner.

PODCAST: Everyone Has A Different Capacity

In this episode, we chat about all the things in life that women have to dedicate their time and energy to on a daily basis (relationship, home, kids, work, friends, self etc.) and how it’s impossible to give each area of your life an equal amount of focus at one time. We also discuss the fact that everyone has a different capacity and how you should never compare yourself and what you’re capable of to that of someone else. The conversation goes on a bit of a tangent and we go OFF THE RAILS , but we finish things off by leaving you with three pieces of homework: try and figure out what your capacity is, make a vision board, and if you really want something, tell yourself you want it and you deserve it and then work hard for it.

This week’s podcast is brought to you by…

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:

BUSINESS TAKEAWAYS

  • Before you got married and had kids, if you wanted to be successful at something, you put all of your focus into it. If you have your mind on something, you’re driven towards it. And when there are only a couple things to think about, it’s very easy to feel like you’re on the right path and things are moving. Then all of a sudden you throw in a husband, a house, a business, 7 kids, a dog - and it’s hard! I can never take enough time to focus on one thing to realize that things are actually moving and are successful, because I’m really just trying to keep up with everything.

  • There are ebbs and flows in every aspect of life. Sometimes your career is going to be on fire and you’re focusing so much on it that your relationship and your kids are lacking, but other times, your kids are going to have all of your attention and other areas of your life will take a backseat.

#MOMTRUTH MOMENTS

  • There shouldn’t even be an argument about working moms vs. stay at home moms because they are both full time jobs that completely consume us.

INSPIRATIONAL TAKEAWAYS

  • Don’t ever beat yourself up and feel like you’re not doing enough when you’re at your capacity. It’s so important to not compare yourself to other people because nobody is born with the same capacity. The capacity you have doesn’t define you as good or bad. Because someone can do more than you, it doesn’t mean you’re not doing enough or not doing the best that you can. That’s where comparison comes in.

  • Stop thinking of the very worst and start thinking about the very fun.

  • People who are successful and make things happen, they put it out into the universe. When you say it out loud, you make your path. The path is open for you. That’s the biggest hurdle for a lot of people who don’t know how to get through. You have to believe you deserve it.

  • In any part of life, if you don’t believe you’re worth it, you won’t get it. So many people who are in bad relationships and who get in ruts every day truly believe that they’re not worth something better.

  3. Fill each tortilla cup with the cooked meat.
