Join "The Marriage BOSS" Rick Gabrielly and special guest August McLaughlin as she discusses challenges that female entrepreneurs face and how to overcome them. Especially balancing your business and your relationship!

August McLaughlin is a nationally recognized health and sexuality writer, radio personality and creator of the empowering brand Girl Boner®, with articles appearing in DAME magazine, Sexual Wellness News, and more. Her first novel, In Her Shadow, called “an engaging story with an inventive structure and an intriguing focus on body-image issues” by Kirkus Reviews, was a 2013 Indies for Excellence finalist, and in 2014 she was named one of BlogHer’s Voices of the Year. Known for melding personal passion, artistry and activism, August uses her skills as a public speaker and journalist to inspire other women to embrace their bodies, sexuality and selves, making way for fuller, more authentic lives. 

August shared a great book recommendation, in fact, she reads this one at least once a year! The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker, explores our internal signals or "hunches" when we may be in danger and why we should follow them rather than ignore them.

August gave us some golden nuggets during our interview, among them "change your language" and "text each other to stay in the pulse of each other's lives" 

I mentioned a quote by Albert Einstein: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted" This illustrates our desire to "measure" everything, especially in our relationships.
