5: Ajit Nawalkha: Talking With My Husband About Difficult Transitions

by neeta bhushan


Hey team Brave Table! This week’s episode is a super fun one! I sat down with my boo, my baby daddy, my husband, and – also – serial entrepreneur, author, and coach, Ajit Nawalkha. This is part 1 of a 2-part episode!

People often ask how we keep our relationship fun, juicy and fresh since we’re together so often as business partners, life partners, and now our most important roles of mom and dad. We’ll touch on a few of our tricks for clearly defining the different roles we play and placing and maintaining boundaries around them. 

We also touch on how to show up for our partners when moving through enormous change – in our case, this was the birthing of a new business, a new baby, and moving our family from LA to Austin. I’m sure pretty much ALL of you have experienced some huge shifts over the past couple of years, so we’ll share with you some of the tools and rituals we had to revisit to help us get through this challenging season. 

This is part one of a two-part conversation so make sure to check out the follow-up episode where we talk more about parenthood and the things no one prepared us for. 

Some of the juicy nuggets you’ll experience in this episode:

  • How we mentally and emotionally navigated our toughest year to date
  • Using your different communication styles as a catalyst for strengthening your relationship
  • Reflecting on your needs vs the needs of your partner and how to honor and respect both
  • The practice of operating from a place of non-reaction and the importance of taking time for solitude and reflection
  • Self-awareness and radical self-acceptance as keys to growth
