001: Get to Know Your Hosts and The Why Behind This Podcast

Blog, Podcast

Welcome to the first episode of Transforming Relationships by Gudlife hosted by Don Olund and Amanda Berlin! Every week, we share something that will inspire, instruct, and motivate you to do something about your current life situation and relationship to keep you from becoming stuck because being stuck sucks – and transformation is possible. 

There is no perfect relationship because we all are flawed people – and to be able to live together, respect each other, accept our differences, laugh at our imperfections, and do life together is just powerful. It’s not always easy to achieve, but it is something we can all aspire to.
