This week, we’re hitting a lot of big topics that have come up recently. We start this episode talking about a few behind-the-scenes details of our furniture line we launched last week and how that even came about. Then we go in-depth into how we handle sponsors and sponsored posts, answering a few questions we’ve received about the process and share a few times we messed up. We take our listeners through how many actual inquiries we get a day, and what goes into producing sponsored content.
How We Manage Our Sponsored Content
• Process for filtering opportunities
• What our “marketing dollars” look like
• A controversial sponsored post we talk about
Reader Question: How Do You Renovate Peacefully as a Couple
• Views on hanging the porch swing

Can’t Get You Outta My Mind
Preston: Preston’s career as an entertainer takes him to all corners of the country, and managing everything can get crazy. For the past few years, he’s been using an app called Tripit, and cannot recommend it enough (not a sponsor, FYI). Preston talks all about what this app does for him and how it saves him hours of time when booking his travel.
Julia: We spend so much time trying to wrangle kids together, get them sitting and everyone smiling so we can capture “the moment.” But if it’s all staged, is that really the moment? Julia has become a huge fan of the Fujifilm Instax Mini, because it’s what is now missing in genuine photography. Take a picture, and capture the moment as it actually was, to remember all of the silly or crying faces, or imperfect moments that we can look back on and really enjoy.
Chris: No matter where you live, there are things to love and things that may drive you crazy about your town. Chris talks about a trend of negativity he’s noticed in their town of Rexburg, and shares some of his own thoughts around the attitude we all adopt about things that happen around us.
