You may know Jocelyn and Shane Sams from their entrepreneurial podcast, Flipped Lifestyle… “Where Life Always Comes Before Work.” This fun and inspirational couple has figured out a way to make their living online, thus spending more time on the important stuff – like raising their 7 and 5-year-old kids!

Today’s conversation does not get into entrepreneurship at all, except in talking about how this duo functions as a team – without, in their words, “killin’ each other.”

It does, however, share Shane and Jocelyn’s best tips for enjoying your relationships – with work, family, and those closest to you.

Our conversation is in turns hilarious (as in when Shane describes his “safety wipe” potty training method), and tender (I nearly named this episode “love is a verb,” I was so moved when Shane and Jocelyn brought up this concept.)

S and J – as those of us in their awesome community frequently refer to them – share several great ideas today to help you really enjoy, not just the every day, but holiday time as well:

1) Think experiences, instead of “stuff,” when giving gifts.
This year the Sams children will receive season passes to an amusement park, bringing huge savings and repeated joy for the whole family.

2) Remember, as S and J’s minister says: “love is a verb.”
It’s the actions we take with our families and friends and loved ones that communicate how much we love them.

3) Work as a team.
So much is easier when there’s more than one of us, working together!
