A journey to abundance, one day at a time.
You’ll recognize Ryan’s name from his posts on our blog and his work in our neighborhood. His conversation on the front porch revealed how he has been on a search to cultivate meaningful relationships with neighbors and friends in many different contexts over the years. He sat down with Adam and Matthew to discuss what he has learned from neighbors (and the rug that ties the room together).
Kristopher Swanson returns to the porch with another neighboring tip: borrowing an item from a neighbor. It sounds so simple, and yet people are often resistant to his practice. Tune in and find out why it is such an important tip.
We like to compare good neighboring to soup. For it to taste great, you need the right ingredients. For us, there are 3 ingredients to good neighboring: abundance, relationship, and joy. With this episode, Adam and I discuss the topic of joy. And we also had a lot of fun. En-joy!
For the 8th episode of our podcast, The Neighbor Next Door, Adam and I discussed the importance of relationship building. When it comes to neighboring, there can be lots of motivations…some positive, some negative. If we focus on building relationships it helps us move in a positive direction. AND it reveals abundance and joy!
Our podcast is available in all these places:
