Please make sure to subscribe, rate and comment on any one of the platforms that you're using to listen to this podcast. Now let me ask you. Have you ever been going through your life trying to figure out what your purpose is? I know I did. I took me forever to figure out exactly what was going on, how I was going to structure everything and how I was going to get myself back to finding out who I was on the inside. So today I had the great opportunity to sit down with brandy vault, who is a mom, a serial entrepreneur, and my rise sister from a conference that we attended in Dallas. Y'All, you're going to love this episode, so stay tuned. Welcome that to the power project. I'm so excited to have my guests on today. She and I met over social media to begin with, and then over the last weekend we had the privilege of getting to meet one another in persons. So, you guys, this is my friend. Read Aboutista. Hey, Rita, how are you? Hey, brandy, I am so extremely excited to be on with you today. It was such a pleasure to meet you over such a beautiful weekend. That really just was so uplifting and, you know, I feel like ever since I met you, things just have continued to roll. So I'm, like I said, I'm very excited to be on with you today. Oh my gosh, wasn't that such an absolutely awesome weekend? Absolutely, I mean, I've come back with like my cup completely full. My My, my passion is lit on fire and I am ready to go. Okay, so, for those of you who don't know, we had the we had the joy of going to the rise conference, which I highly recommend. This is not a paid ad, but I fully, fully recommend that you go sign up for one of the rise tours tour dates next year. There's four different ones, so read it. Have you been to a personal development conference before this one? You know, I think professionally I've been to a lot of different conferences along the way and there's always a slight touch of for, you know, personal development, but nothing like this. A lot of my personal development that I've worked on has been just me over the years, going to therapy, you know, listening to a lot of different motivational speakers, Abraham Hicks, Tony Robbins, obviously Rachel Hollis, all of these speakers on Youtube podcast, like you know, that was my personal development and things I continue to do are like reading, oh my God, a ton of books on all of this. So that was really what I would use to help pump me up. But honestly, nothing, nothing is geared towards women as much as this conference was and like it was. I mean it was extraordinary. I don't really even know what else to say. I was just so moved by every single piece of it. It's the first conference that I literally did not leave the room from the moment that I sat down till the moment it was over every day. And Wow, that's awesome. I think that. I mean I've been to women's conferences before and in the like, like Christian...

...women's Conferences, but but not just just a women's empowerment conference like this. And and I think it was really impressive that there were seven thousand women in this one conference and I literally we almost skirted away without any one being anything less than warm and welcoming and inviting. We had a little incident like the last day. Really, yeah at all said. I know, all weekend I was like this is awesome, like women can come together and not, you know, have any issues. And we had a little issue over like a seat and it kind of was up. We had something like that to I didn't even think about that, but yeah, you're I want I was that girl like I wanted to turn around to be like you are not lifting your sister up like I have you. Are you taking notes today right? Did you where the elephants right now in the room, because you were starting to be a little crazy. Oh my God, I know, I know. I was like, okay, guys, we almost made it, we almost made it, but now. It was a really great weekend and I to like you, am am a personal development junkie. You know, all the books, all the videos, all the podcast I just I'm a student of life and I think that we only become better at whatever we pour into and whatever we, you know, actively pursue to become better at. So did you at did you start in on the personal development journey at a young age, or how long have you been kind of on that track? So it's interesting, right, because I think a lot of personal development starts at a very young age without us even knowing. So my parents and I'm I'm very open. I think I learned to be vulnerable and open and comfortable in my vulnerability at a very young age. But my parents divorced when I was like two years old, so I was raising a single parented household who my mother's also hunder and so so if anybody knows about the Hispanic culture, it's very strong and we're supposed to be like the strongest woman in the world and like we're never supposed to show emotion and we're always supposed to have it together and we're always supposed to be it's like every single thing possible that a woman's supposed to be and half of the time is not. That's what we're supposed to be, and so it was really difficult, challenging for someone who is coming from a single parent householder. At the same time you're developing like your cultural aspect and then assimilating to a culture that is not bone foreign, because obviously we're I was born here, but like learning societal norms from school friends and all that stuff. First is coming home and then also trying to like understand what was going on at home culturally, you know. So it is it was a weird balance, and so I remember my first time ever going to pure mediation was in fifth grade, and now we're like there was a whole bunch of girls for some reason, you know, something happened with the girls or whatever, and the Guy Counselor brings in and they sit us down in there like hey, we need to talk. So we have this conversation and like, you know, we're trying to like cool down the issue, when we find out during that whole entire process, weirdly enough, that all the girls in that room were from single parent households. Oh, interesting right, like it was just very interesting and so different and we all had different backgrounds, like one girl was from Russia, the other girl was African American, one was America, like, you know, Caucasian, and I'm like a hunder and girl trying to figure it out, like and it was right, like wow, and I didn't. I didn't. I didn't reflect on that at that moment. And then I continue going throughout life and I was, you know, troubled teen. A lot of issues, you know, obviously related to me acting out. And now, as an adult, I can look back and me like, yeah, this is acting out as a direct result of just things that I was missing, you know, things that...

I was trying to find love in different places. So at fifteen, then I was brought to therapy once for women who it was like a women's therapy group, and I didn't feel I really enjoy that at all. So I was like, okay, whatever. And then after like failed relationships back to back, I finally, after lived it was like my last one, where I was like, you know what I need to there's something, not that they were wrong, you know, not that they weren't wrong in their situations, but I need to start figuring out this journey from myself and see what what it is about me that I need to reflect on, because clearly something's not working out. And I started. I found this amazing, amazing therapist in Orleans who was half Hispanic, she was full Hispanic, but she was also like raised in the US, went to school here, all of that. So we were able to connect on so many different levels and I stuck with her. I committed. It was the first time that I had made a commitment to myself to better myself, and I stayed with her for about four years. And while I was with her, I was you know, there's so many things that happen, like so many life things that sometimes you can't stop right like grief, loss, just everything possible, and I continue to like realize that I needed to work, continue working on myself because, you know, people, truthfully, will only believe in you if you believe in yourself. And yeah, it was really hard for me to get to that point and I literally went through this I felt like I was going through the ringer. But as I was doing that, I was reading millions of books on personal development and listening to all these podcasts, all of these youtube videos, along with my therapy, and I that's when I finally was like this is it, this is this is what I am passionate about, this is what I love. I want to share the information that I have with other people so that they can avoid some of the ways that I wasn't always super healthy with myself. You know so now, and I think that I think that's a beautiful gift to give to the world, like if, if you know, if someone can learn from I know that we all have to make our own, you know, our own choices in life and and learn from our own lessons, but I think it's beautiful if you can put your lesson out into the world and say hey, you know, this is what I spent years of therapy and reading and learning, this is what I've found, and and also just to let others know that they're not alone, because I don't know why we as human beings, but specifically women, I think, Oh yeah, just you know, we just tend to really fill alone, alone in the world, and that was one of my my biggest takeaways this weekend. I was like, my Gosh, like, if you are in your your network, your community, your neighborhood, you know, whatever it looks like. If you don't feel like there's someone there that understands or someone there that has been through your struggle or someone there that has the same jacked up thinking. You know, yeah, there are people, yeah, there are people in the world that have gone through the same things as you. There's people in the world that have that have the same crazy thoughts about themselves, you know, and it's that whole community aspect of of sharing our lessons with one another and and our struggles and and and building each other up. So, yeah, I think that's a great I think that's a great gift that you can give. So what made you get into, or what has been your light that shined on personal development and you were like this is this is something that I need to incorporate for me and also talk to others about things that they can work on for themselves or continue to empower themselves with. Yeah, so, my my mom was like the Queen of self help...

...books and they were always, always like in our house and it was I mean it was like, you know, how to have a happy marriage, how to, you know, like be a good mom or all these things, and I literally could not stand selfhelp books. I was like my yeah, like I am an avid reader, you know, from from the time I was four years old. If something had toilet paper on it, I would read it. But I just never got this whole this whole selfhelp world, you know, which is what it was called back then. You know, we say personal development at this point, but I was just I was raised with a really strong support system as a kid. I had two parents that that my my dad constantly told me that, you know, I could do anything that I set my mind to, and my mom, you know, told me that I was going to be a leader one day and and so I didn't necessarily see the necessity for the personal development. And then the funny, the flip side of that is my mother was a big, you know, big fan of therapy and I hated I had no use for therapy. I hate it, therapy. I didn't want anything to do with it. I was like up, there is legit like zero reason for me to go talk about my problems with a stranger and pay him money, you know. So I kind of have like my dad's personality, where we can just handle it and figure it out on our own as what we think, you know. But I really started digging into the world of personal development for a completely different a flip of that, because, because I had that support system and because I felt the need to speak into others and tell them that I believed in them and tell them that they could do it, I was seeing this this limited mindset where people just didn't give themselves credit enough to think that they could actually do, you know, whatever it was that they had called on their heart to do. So my my personal development journey was really more of how do I help others see this? How do I help others gain confidence? How do I help others develop a growth mindset? And so when I started, you know, when I started listening to the speakers and and, you know, the Mel robins and and the the Tom Bill you and the Brendan Burchard's, and when I started digging into that, I immediately was like, oh my gosh, like I have this voice. I've been telling people these things all my life. You know, you and I discussed that. Yeah, and you can, you can jump in when I wrap this up and talk to this also. I was that person that, all my life, was the friend that someone came to me and told me what they couldn't do and I told them exactly how they could do it and why they were equipped and why they had to do it. So mine. Yeah, so I love it. I love the whole realm of it. I love the fact that, even though I'm a very selfaware person, I also there's always room for me to grow, there's always room for me to become a better version of me. There's always room for me to figure out like Oh, okay, this is this is why I think this way, this is why I do that, this is why I need to work on becoming better at that, you know. So, yeah, so, that that's that's the whole world of personal development for me. And you were saying that you kind of had, you know, a similar a similar experience growing up. Yeah, I think, you know, it's ever since I was really young, and I think it has a lot to do with the fact that,...

...you know, like I've mentioned, you know my background. My mom was a single parents. So like for her, in her mind, she would always just tell me whatever was on her mind and I would, you know, I would listen and I think I took that with me to the point where people would like come to me. I've always been that person at a friend that people like just for some reason, feel like the guards are dropped completely and they just can tell me whatever, and I have always been the person to be uplifting and say no, you can do this, like, you know, it's okay. I think that's the hardest thing right in personal development is people forget that it is okay, and I've always just been that person to tell other people. Now, I'm not going to say that there haven't been times where I need that it's going to be okay, sometimes too write because especially one of those things that I learned from this conference was that we all have those moments where becky with the good hairs in her head as she's telling us you can't do this, but you know, for me I've always been the person to tell everyone else know, you can do this and this is how you can do it and you can get out of this. You know, it just has always been something that came naturally and I will never forget like one of my someone, a personal person in my family, who it was going through a really tough time and they gone through divorce and I was just like look, you're going to be okay, like you're going to be okay. You need to get up, put some makeup on your face, like go out, you know, go out and regain your confidence, and I really think that that's a good that's basically what it is. Is Like we're teaching and telling people how to regain their confidence in themselves when they've been for example, you know, I've I've seen this happen to where like Mom's and I love my mom's I I can't wait to be a mom one day. But it's like you guys do so much for everyone else so selflessly, which I think is the most beautiful thing in the world, you know, but then it's like, after the years of doing so much for everyone so selflessly, they start to forget who they are. And I've gotten to that point too, where it's like you talk to girlfriends and it's and they're like, you know, I don't even recognize myself anymore. You look, I don't remember who I was, and I think that's one of the most beautiful things to be able to talk to people in those situations, although I'm not necessarily in that, to be able to tell them look, look, you can find yourself again. You know, here some is this is how you can do it, like you're still in there. You know, sometimes it's unpacking, like one piece at a time, with those things that you put on top, you know, but making sure to keep time for yourself, even if it's fifteen minutes a day, to just remember who you were, you know, or who you are. And Yeah, I mean that that's just been something that naturally has come from me, you know, and it's that. Yeah, well, I think it's really I mean I think it's very, you know, observant for you to realize that, because you know, you're single, without you don't have children yet, not children yet. So it's very observant for you and see, because I, you know, I was, I was, I was always the girl with the big dreams. I was always the girl that had the call of purpose on my heart from a very young age. I always tell people that I didn't necessarily have to go looking for my voice or my purpose. I just had to step into what I was being called for all of my life. And and so, you know, going into college, there were there were massive dreams on the table and goals and and then I, you know, I lost myself for a while and I ended up being a stay at home mom for ten years, which, thank it was. It was the greatest gift of my life. It just wasn't necessarily a plan that I had put on...

...my life plan. And you know, in that ten years I was committed to if I'm a stay at home mom, I'm going to be the best day stay at home mom anyone's ever met. And I you know, and I did it and I lived for my kids. But at the same time I still knew all along that there was another call on my heart. I still knew that that this was part of my story, but this wasn't my whole story. That I would, you know, emerge as as walking and purpose in a different way and something that was separate from being a mom and separate from being a wife. So and and do not get me wrong here there, I know that there are women on the face of this planet that everything in their heart says like these are my babies, I am a mom and this is what I was made for, and I highly commend that, because it's the hardest daying job I've ever had in my life. But but I knew there was something else as well, and so there was a part of having to discover myself and come back around two. Okay, this is this is the girl who gave her first speech at nine years old in front of a room full of rotary men and and knew at that moment she was meant to be speaking in front of crowds. You know, this is the girl that dreamt of changing the world, this is the girl that was, you know, had purpose in her life. So that's been a really fun thing for me to rediscover in the past, in the past oh to to two years, really two to three years, of really kind of unpacking what it looks like to walk in purpose. So for you, was there, like was there every time you felt like you lost yourself or you felt that maybe you felt separated from from walking and purpose, or even you felt a call, you just didn't know what the heck look like or how to get there. Yeah, I have you ever read the book the Alchemist? No, I I have it on a list to read, but I have not. Okay, so I recommend you and everyone listening to this read the alchemist because I feel like it's such a short book but it explains my personal journey and I think you can read that book over and over again in life and it will literally mean something different every single time. Long Story Short, it's basically a purpose, a person who's like trying to find purpose and they go through this long journey and they come back and purpose was where it started all along. Yeah, so mine was kind of like that now, be honest with you, like my whole and I think we talked about this when we were in Dallas. But you know, I always longed to work in politics and I wanted to be in politics and it was just a big thing. It was a it was a something I wanted to do. I think in the long run I will eventually still do something when times are a little bit different. I think right now the climate is a little, it's a little, it's a little, how to put this like it's uncomfortable. I think across the board it's nasty. It is I mean, and you and I both talked to yes, I was a person. I was a person that wanted to work in politics also. Yeah, and I literally right now feel like I dodged a bullet it. Yeah, Oh, yeah, at this point. Yeah, yeah, and I truly believe that you did. I'll tell you like I was. I had finally landed my dream job. Now, I took me about ten years to finish college, Undergrad I had a fullblown career before I finished school. So I left school and then I went back to school because I was like, well, I supposed to be something bigger than this and I thought college was supposed to be at once I graduated, I got my job. Eventually ended up getting my job in government relations,...

...because I'm the person who says, if I'm going to do this, I do it. Yes, yes, and I think that that's the kind of like my clause, like shove in and I am like, you cannot get them out. So last very shore I end up in government relations with zero I've never worked for a politician period, but I had all the relationships set up for the previous position I was in, so they gave me a chance and my boss was an amazing guy, like super super like the best person you could ever work for. On the flip side, some of the people that I was representing weren't so much. I work for a trade association at the time and so I at first was so full of joy and happiness and then, as time was going on, I could feel myself getting drained and more drained and more drained and I'm like, Oh God, what am I going to do? This has been like this is what I've always wanted, this was what I wanted, you know, like this, at least, is what I thought I wanted, you know, and I literally what's funny is like my journey of personal development didn't necessarily kick off until that position started, which it's like, you know, life will shift you in so many different directions, and I think one of the things I do want to say is for anybody who may be confused and trying to find their purpose right now, like we are all on our own journey and every single person has a different part of their life and different part of their path that they're in right now. And if you feel like you're not there yet, trust me, the moment you feel you will feel something inside of you that will tell you like it's like the little child who's been calling to you all along and you finally turned her volume up and said, okay, it's your time to talk. That is exactly, exactly the best way I can think to describe it. Like it and mine, you know, mine was like, oh my gosh, like I've had this in me all along and I spent all these years thinking, what am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to do. What am I supposed to do? and and thinking, you know, I don't I don't know, I don't know. I don't know how I'm supposed to use the gifts that I have. And it's like I've always a note, always known, and you and I we've spoken about this. You know I I do. I do women's retreats, I speak, I speak out an advocacy for nonprofit or Azations, I speak into women's groups. But I know and when you like, the best way I can explain mine is when like Rachel Hollis is on stage or MEL robins row is on stage or Christine Kane is on stage or a female speaker is doing it at the level that I one hundred percent fill, that I've been called to be at. Eventually it's like my heart races, my breath catches my throat and I almost feel angry, like not jealous, not resentful, but like angry that I'm being a bystander and observe. And I'm like, if that is not like your purpose pounding on your heart? Yeah, saying this is what you're made to do, keep doing what you're doing, keep growing, keep pushing and I think, like you just said, if you ever feel like you know you're searching and this isn't where you're supposed to be? It's okay, because it's all part of the process, right, it's right, it's part of the journey. And and don't you feel like being in that position, you know, with with the great boss you had and with the job that you thought you had aspired, you know, to have that that was going to be your end goal, but finding out that it didn't align with who you represented? Like your journey wouldn't look the same. Absolutely, I absolutely if you hadn't walked through that right. Yeah, no, absolutely. Yeah, it's interesting and and life has a great way of explaining that to...

...you in some of sometimes it's a really hard lesson. Oh yeah, like I was interviewing right before I left my position over there. I was interviewing for other government relations positions. One was for a public policy manager for Really Large Corporation that is going global and the other one was for another trade association, Actually in Dallas. So I did not get the job for the corporation only because I didn't have a law degree. Well, essentially that's what they told me at the end, but it was me and this other guy who the guy had graduated from topnotch universities and had, you know, the work for governor whatever, Blah, Blah Blah, and here I am with my, you know, basically state school degree and experience under my belt, with no fear, and I think that's the thing is like I literally had zero fear and that's why I got so far along. And that was like a twenty interview process, like it was pretty crazy to get that far into the process. And then, you know, they had a desert determine between the two candidates and I didn't get and I was really heartbroken, but at the same time I was kind of alleviated because now that I look back, I'm like, Oh my God, the amount of time and effort that these people give a way of their own personal time to be pioneers for this other company. Like I would have zero time for myself at that point, you know. Yeah, so tell us a little about what what it looks like on the flip side of that, like what you're doing now. We I know that you've started the empowerment and all that, yeah, podcast, and I love that name because it's like what do you talk about on your podcast? Empowerment and all that right. It was the eating. Yeah, I know it, you know it well. My Day job, I actually work for an amazing company. Now I am actually a rep for sleep studies lab, and the way that that actually aligns with what I'm doing in general is, like I told myself I will never again work for another company where I'm not helping people, because, on the flip side, I wasn't necessarily doing that and I was doing a little bit of damage to people versus like actually helping and so, you know, that is obviously something that helps me help other people in the medical industry here in Houston. But empowerment and all that literally was a birth child of I'd been thinking about starting a podcast for a year. I think you told me you did the same, like it had taken a while before you launched, and I was with some girl friends and I was like, yeah, I just found this APP and apparently you can just like start a podcast. It's no big deal, you just press the button, press play and you can start it, and they're like, okay, we'll do it. That was like what in the first topic that came to my mind selflove first thing that came out of my night. Now, looking back I'm like, Oh my God, I should edit it, but I kept it exactly raw and hard tot hear and all that, exactly the way it was, because I'm like there's nothing more beautiful about selflove than to be honest and true about your emotions. And you can hear everybody's emotions in that episode and I'm like I am not touching that. It's going to stay exactly the same way that it was from the beginning. So they were they this was literally back in May, and they were like just do it, and so I did, and now it's like it opened up a whole new world of you know, just so much. You know in the fact that I'm not afraid of being vulnerable and talking about the podcast or this or that, and it's like, you know, even having this conversation with you, like two weeks ago, I'm like let's call them and see, let's just do this, let's try, let's just try to let a spark and even if that doesn't work, and that's fine, if we shoot high and you know, and low, it's fine, like at least you and I now have a relationship and that will continue to grow and you know, we'll talk about each other's podcasts and and I feel like just the amount of things that have...

...come out and such a positive way since I press play, since I press record, I should say, although I have forgotten to press record sometimes. But I know it isn't the worst, it's the worse. I know. I know you're like, oh my gosh, just missed all of that and was so good. Oh my God, that's happened and luckily I had a great guests who came back and was like, don't worry about it, we'll do it again. I'm like, thank you, because I feel crazy right now. So I think so. You and I had spoken in the beginning about your original idea for the podcast being a single, single female driven, you know, career oriented, very empowerment focused. HM, your original idea was was single relationships right. Well, it was, it was going to be. Honestly, it was just I wanted to be very broad about it. I wanted it to just be like something about empowerment where everyone in the world could hear like, you know, this massive idea that I was gonna shoot it out there and every single person was going to hear it, and I was like every single person in the world is going to be able to relate to me, because every single person needs to hear this. And I'm like, literally, after a couple of episodes, I was like no, like women need to be empowered and this just needs to go in the direction of everything that we can talk about in general, topics that are related to women, that you know, the good topics, the bad topics, helping people get a little bit more directed, you know, just all these and then having some amazing people on the show too that have such great things to talk about. Like, for example, you had mentioned that you you know your word, your power word was power purpose, and I'm like yes, please, because everyone is always searching for purpose, like everyone wants to feel like that connection is to why am I here? What can I do? What am I supposed to be doing? Right, and I was like yes, every woman feels that way too, you know, and I feel like that's such a great direction in which you're going in with your podcast. So yeah, I mean in you it solidified it, truthfully, after the conference. It was just like all signs point to we need to uplift our sisters, we need to trumpet for them, we need to have the elephants to protect the women when they're down and vulnerable and be the ones that are standing tall next to them when something beautiful has happened and cheer them on. And that's what I want to do and I want to continue to do that and, you know, I'm hoping that that will be something that can if I can help one person out there and make their day better, than I've accomplished my mission. That is what I say every single week. I'm like, my goal is if I can reach one person sitting at home on their couch that knows that they have a spark in their heart and I can encourage them to get up off the couch and go follow whatever call it is on their life, then I've a published exactly what I'm showing up to do weekend and week out with this show. And I think I knew all along that my show was going to be committed to specifically women, and the reason behind that is I have, I've always responded well to men and in this this space, you know, there's a lot of males in this space. It's you know, it's a primarily male dominated industry, like the podcasting and the personal development and so I had heard other speakers and even at you know my skin here. Business are conferences, are conventions. We were having men on stage speaking to the women and I also was like Ius, like this doesn't even...

...make sense, like you've got fifteenzero women. Where are the women that are going to encourage and inspire? You know why? Why is Daniel Pink the you know, keynotes the day and so so when I saw it was like when I saw no robbins speaking, that was like the first time that I really like witnessed a female saying the same things that I heard in my head and the same things that I told other women. So I think it's super important that we stay true to that. I think, you know, I think it's a it's a good thing. I think that the the more of us that there are, the stronger the community is going to be, the better people are going to be for it. And and my absolute favorite thing that I have learned. I'm I'm almost fifty episodes in, I'm right at I'm right at the fifty market this point, and just the beautiful souls I've gotten to meet, the quote unquote friendships I've built that, I mean I stay in contact with nearly every single person that's been a guess on my podcast that I circle back around and we've got this little like community built out of it. So I'm excited and I'm I'm glad that you're standing up and you're using your voice because I think it's super important. I think oftentimes women, and I've actually had these conversations, so I don't just think this, women tend to think, well, when I get married, I'm going to fulfill my purpose, when I get married and have kids and a family, I'm going to fulfill my purpose and they it's almost like they wait because they don't know what they have to offer as a single female. MM. So I think it's so important that you step into this space and you share your voice and you say look, it has nothing to do with with, you know, whether you're single or you're married, or you're a parent or you're not a parent, it just has to do with a call on your heart and and walking in purpose. Truly. Yeah, I think you hit the nail on the head with that, because I definitely at some point in my life, I think I just stopped and was like I need to hurry up and get into a relationship or whatever, and there were moments where I had my little breaks and I was just like, Oh, you know, this is all going to come together, this is all going to make sense when I get married, and it's like, no, you don't. That is you were supposed to supplement each other. That doesn't keep you from being the individual that you are and have you uplift the beauty that you are in everything that's inside of you, and that shouldn't go away. I love that. And how how much sweeter will that relationship be when you walk into it knowing that you are standing in your purpose, in your truth, independently and and the best version of you that you can bring to that relationship? Like, what a what an amazing gift to your partner? Yeah, absolutely, and it's, I think, one of the most the one of the awesome pieces that I took away too from and I love to listen to I'm, you know, obviously pretty analytical. Is always just been something for me right, but like listening to people who have marriages, who you know, like older couples, younger couples, newly woods divorces. I like listening to everybody story when it comes down to this, because it's like you know what works, what doesn't work, and the one thing I always here is like, Oh, X, my spouse is supportive of x, or we communicate or you know, like you can always tell those people who, for some reason or another, the basis of their foundation obviously is love, but there has to be some sense of support and communication. Either one partners a little bit more supportive than the other, but it's so important, you know. And, like you said, how beautiful is it going to be when you, when I...

...finally meet somebody, or you know, whoever's listening, when you finally meet someone who you know is standing in their purpose and you're standing in yours and you both are just supporting each other throughout the rest of your lives together, like it just beautiful. Yeah, beautiful. Yeah, absolutely beautiful. Well, too bad that we have an audience of all women. Just go ahead and put a plug out. Rights, if you have a gorgeous brother that that is standing in his perfect Rita, where can they find? They on social right, yeah, you can find me, and he's in Texes, but on social media I am Rita.
