This episode is especially insightful because come from my own experiences getting to know and grow with my wife, May (a.k.a. Boo Thang). May continues to be a cornerstone in my life for a myriad of reasons, outside of finally finding my Jasmine (I was obsessed with Aladdin as a kid). This Persian Princess and I have been through the grinder when it comes to the ups and downs of dating and romance, but we always come back to our commitment to each other, our friendship and our relationship now as husband and wife.
We answer several questions from a Q&A post I did on my Instagram as well as spin off into specific areas of work that have best served our relationship. We highly value our individualism while at the same time make damn sure we are each other's biggest advocates. I think this episode will not only give you all more insight into our lives and what makes us tick but also some ways to help improve any relationship you may currently be in our for future reference.

Rich homies unite! Travis S is one of the hungriest (literally) guys in the game when it comes to YouTube personalities. An accountant by day and avid weight lifter by night... and food challenger extraordinaire everywhere in between.
But Travis' story unfolded more as how he was able to take his fear of public speaking and being a natural introvert to a natural in front of the camera and putting himself out there to the world. On top of that, Travis lost his mother to cancer during college. Losing this foundational person in his life was hands-down his most trying time, but he came out even stronger on the other side and shows us how he lives a life ever forward in her honor.
We learn here how to best apply new platforms to our lives that not only help us grow professionally but also show us ways we in which we can get over our own shortcomings. You can watch Travis S on his YouTube channel lifting weights, eating insane amounts of food and conquering his fears of public speaking on a regular basis.
