Welcome to the Multi-FAMILY zone podcast, where business meets family. The hosts of the show, Julia and Gino Barbaro, have been married for over twenty years, and have six children.
Julia homeschools the children, and recently became a marriage and life coach to help couples become better communicators and help enrich their lives. The couple is constantly asked about how they balance their entrepreneurial and real estate journey while raising their kids. The Multi-FAMILY zone was created to address these questions, along with a host of questions from the Jake and Gino community.
In this episode, Julia & Gino discuss what an empowering question is, how to ask an empowering question, and the benefits of incorporating these types of questions into your daily life.

The client will begin to realize options available to him that he didn’t notice when he was viewing them from a level of fear.
Here is a list of empowering questions for you to use:
To enrich your relationships, become an active listener. Do not sit there waiting for your turn to speak. Actively listen to your partner and then respond. 20% of your action should be speaking, while 80% should be listening to your partner.
Remember, to be interesting, you need to be interested!
