More powerful than a brainstorm?


Sometimes when a challenge or a problem pops up in my life I just stand there and stare at it, as if that’s going to help.

For some unknown reason (laziness perhaps) I can’t shift into fix-it mode. So the problem just sits there, waiting, mocking.

But Carrie and I work pretty well together when it comes to fixing problems. I guess there is something magic about having a partner to kick-ass with.

Facing a challenge together is always a million times easier and can even be fun.

When faced with a challenge, we brainstorm uh, BRAIN HURRICANE for ideas.

Just to get the ball rolling we will go crazy and suggest silly solutions that would never work. (If the car wont start, trying blowing on the radio!)

All of this silliness gets us thinking outside the box. Next thing you know a super creative idea pops up that we never would have thought of. Boom!

Listen to this episode as we help Bob and Shirley (the every-couple) BRAIN HURRICANE ways to move beyond living paycheck-to-paycheck.

How do you BRAIN HURRICANE for creative ideas to solve problems in your life?

-Derek, Carrie, Amelie
