Call in to speak with the host
For the 2nd show in our Bliss-full Relationships segment, we're excited to bring Tonya Dawn and Justin Recla. These two are POWER partners, in life and in business. From marriage to business to parenthood they continually redefine the concept of POWER within the context of partnership.
With over 18 years of combined experience in military and government counterintelligence and over 20 years of combined training experience, they operate TJ Recla, a training entity that “Translates Valuable Information into Business Success” and promote Tonya’s books and training. Tonya’s motto, “Changing the World by Redefining POWER,” also defines their relationship.
“People ask us all the time how we work together and stay married. The secret is we don’t define our roles,” Tonya explains. “We operate in a constant state of flux regarding POWER and gender roles. Some situations require my method of directing and some require his. We just step back and allow the process to work without trying to control it.”
Justin adds, “We have to be okay with playing a supporting role when necessary. I’ve really had to learn that sometimes she carries the masculine energy better than I would in a situation. That was a tough one for my ego.”
But in the end, the value and importance of their relationship overrides any preconceived notions of gender roles. And it seems to working. Whether they’re nurturing their entrepreneurial ventures or their two year-old, they do it together…and they do it well.
