Billy and Brian talk to Christine Chang, a bestselling relationship author and speaker. She helps high-performers create ideal relationships by teaching self-awareness, boundaries, accountability, and communication skills.
Christine's podcast Show Up and book Show Up: Finding Love for Independent Women
have helped thousands of professional women all over the world create the relationship of their dreams. She is here today to talk to us about balancing high performance, happiness, and relationships.
We ask Christine:
--How do we first find clarity within ourselves so that we actually know what it is that we want instead of what has been projected onto us through other people’s opinions, standards, checklists?
--Once we’ve been honest and clear with ourselves, how do we have those conversations with partners/future partners?
--With regards to “if it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell,” I wanted to challenge that idea a bit by throwing in the word “maybe”: Do you think that people who say “if it’s not a hell yes, then it’s a hell no” are actually using that as an excuse to not do the work that is required to make a relationship last or even using it as an excuse to procrastinate for the PERFECT conditions to start dating? Is that where we could squeeze in the “maybe” so they stretch their comfort zone a little bit?
--Your focus is on helping high-performing women create the relationship of their dreams. What traits do you attribute to high-performing women?
--What were your dating faux paus back in the day? What was it about your husband Pete that set him apart from everyone else? Or was that more about you getting clear with yourself first? If you asked him, what was it about you that set you apart?
--For the men out there who are seeking an independent, high-performing woman to date, what advice do you have? What lessons could they learn from your husband Pete?
