Looking to join a.z. and associates
Each week we will bring you the foundational principles needed to navigate through the obstacles and opportunities of life. 

We are vulnerable and raw in every episode. We never sugarcoat what it takes to take control of your life and live a life worth living. 

We share with you our successes and our defeats. We unpack how we have mastered prosperity in business and beyond. We share the lessons and stories of the journey we have been on and we demystify the journeys we are embarking on now.

From business to personal, the DO THE WORK podcast covers it all. 
Mind Reading | Do The Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 7
So many arguments are rooted in something that we are carrying around with us. We, in turn, expect our partners to READ OUR MINDS and know what we need at any given time. Expectations are very high in a relationship and increase as the year's pass. Clear communication and honesty of who you are is as important as your partner creating and respecting that space created for you to do so. It is really easy to blame our partner for our unhappiness; when you take ownership of how you show up in the relationship and minimize the expectations, that is the path to appreciating each other. You have to put yourself first, and the other person needs to do the same. 
Ego | Do The Work Podcast with A.Z. & Carla Araujo - Episode 6
Ego is a personal thing that affects not only you but everything about you. It can keep you from asking for help, from growing in your business and from moving forward in your relationships. It is an active component of who you are and at the same time can be so sensitive that it crushes your confidence and ability to stop self-loathing. Where in your life are you allowing your ego to hold you back? Stop flexing your ego, and take advantage of the opportunities to learn from your mistakes and not wallow in self-doubt. 
Are My Kids Proud of Me? | Carla Rants with Carla Araujo - Episode 11
My little girl went through some crazy stuff with me while I was in training. I had to leave her, cancel appointments, tell her no; and she called me her Hero. It was a busy time with building my business and getting ready for shows. My oldest didn't experience that time the same way. She would go to the gym with me and was part of everything; a mini-me. I had a lot of guilt about missing out on the quality times with my kids. I decided to keep doing the things I loved, without the guilt. It wasn't easy, but I took control of my life and brought my kids with me; regardless if they liked it or not. I wanted them to watch me and be part of my growth; in business and life. My girls are in the thick of it always. They see me as their Superwoman; doing a lot of things other Moms don't do. They have told me this because I let them see it all. I don't hide from my kids, I don't hold back, and in that, I have earned their trust because I decided to take control.
Who Failed Us? | Do the Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 5
The truth is couples often blame each other for their failures in the marriage, their bodies, and their business. Having a fear of failure can stifle the growth of not just yourself but your spouse. When one spouse begins to rise, and the other isn't ready, they can subconsciously hold the other back, pushing them down to keep them from moving on without them. If you are not a healthy individual, you will never be a healthy pair. Focus on yourself and quit using your partner's failures as your excuse to not grow beyond your capacity. It is time to take control of you and stand in your power overall.
The Mental Game | Do the Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 4
A.Z. and Carla have experienced a lot of tragedy and chaos in their life, but it has been their mindset which brought them to where they are today. Try not to focus on where you are today, but instead center in on what got you here. Being overweight, out of shape or just wanting to better yourself requires you to not only condition your body but your mind as well. An excellent place to start? Sign up and attend the Do The Work Women's Event and hear from Carla as she shares what brought her to a position of power and how she can help you get there also. She isn't your personal savior, but she will help you get to that place where you can help yourself, your family and your business. 

Listening | Carla Rants with Carla Araujo - Episode 10
I kept pushing forward, attending every show; going, changing my physique, changing my bathing suit.

I spent thousands of dollars on my suits, my heels, on everything; my training, EVERYTHING!

I kept pushing forward, kept pushing forward, but there was no way I was ever going to win because my ENEMY was so much STRONGER than I was. 

She was building over the years all of that strength that she needed to PULL ME BACK! That enemy was ME! It was me. I DID that to myself. I FAILED to believe in myself.

I failed to feel alive, to OWN UP to what I worked so hard for every...single...show. I failed, and the enemy was me. And she was only getting stronger because I kept BUILDING these sad ass stories. POOR ME. 

Everyone else around was to BLAME; except me.

I didn't care what anybody thought of me; I was going to go up on that stage and wave and blow kisses, and I am not going to get SHIT!.

So, I did precisely that. Something DEEP inside of me had to come out. It wasn't easy to say that and then I win, it wasn't that easy. It was years of PREPARATION, of FAILURES and feeling UNCOMFORTABLE.

It was years for me to step back up on stage and say,” I GOT THIS! I AM DONE.” 

There are steps that you take to get there and never look back. There are times that you will take a little step back, but you won't last because you will become too POWERFUL for your enemy.
I get there, I stand strong and I WIN the whole show; I wave, I blow kisses and I am OUT. 

I get off stage, and it gets WORSE. I wasn't meant to win to feel COMFORTABLE. To appreciate my win just yet; there was a PURPOSE and a reason that I won.

It wasn't to win and feel comfortable and walk off with that crown and the roses. It wasn't for any of that; it was the step I needed to feel UNCOMFORTABLE. To go through all of that UGLINESS to get to this point in my life. 

I remember while I was doing that show, how great it would be to one day stand on this stage and EMPOWER other women, through my story. How can I get there if I can't even stand up to these bright lights and claim my win? Appreciate all of my hard work; who am I to own a stage like this? I MADE ALL of that possible. I took a RISK, beat the hell out of my enemy, and I WON!

The Experience | Do the Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 3
Losing yourself in the commodity of being a Mom and a wife is a real thing. Waiting for the “What Now,” can cause you to wake up one day and not have a clue who you are or what you should be doing. Attending the Do the Work Women's Event with Carla Araujo on April 26th and 27th can bring on that breakthrough that will answer the question of what now. Stop waiting and get up, show up and be that powerhouse that you know you are. Your kids, your partner, your employees, someone is watching you; what are they seeing?
Consistency | Carla Rants with Carla Araujo - Episode 9
I was reminded by a phone call today about how I never used to put myself out there on Instagram. I had an account but would be afraid to post even a picture of my dog or kids because I didn't want to be judged. 

I was so concerned with how I might be received by other people that I let it stop me. It all changed when I started to Facebook Live videos, especially when I opened up about my depression and anxiety.

 I went all in, raw and real, and I held nothing back. It gave me the confidence I needed to be who I am today. When I finally let go of the stories and lies in my head that I believed, I was able to embrace me; I am Carla Araujo, and I am proud of who I am and how far I have come. 

Insanity of Perfection | Do the Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 2
Having the courage to trust your partner with an accident you made, big or small, takes confidence. That confidence comes from knowing that no matter what happens, you are on the same page and have the same end-game in mind. Storing up the mistakes your mate makes to use as an arsenal of defense, can only lead to miscommunication and blame. Stop putting your relationship in jeopardy by focusing on the trivial things that come up. You aren't going to say anything that they aren't already telling themselves. This is what makes the family dynamic work. It's not instilling the insanity of perfection, because that leads to chaos. 
UPS AND DOWNS | Carla Rants with Carla Araujo - Episode 8
Carla was on a high and then came down, hard; but only for a few days. With her energy low and not feeling herself, she allowed herself to feel what she was feeling. She was still showing up, no matter what, the Carla of today always shows up. When you start to discover yourself and know who you are, it's okay to be in the dark place; don't stay there and get back on the high you were on. Regardless of the criticism or ugliness that can come your way, you must live your life for you!
NAVIGATING THE STORM | Do the Work Podcast with A.Z. and Carla Araujo - Episode 1
Going through ups and downs in your marriage is a reality; but how you weather the storm, navigating your way through it is a sign of growth. When one spouse hides their feelings of self-doubt, fear, depression, and anxiety, the other spouse can read this as something entirely different. It is important to communicate when you are down and need space to get through the dark times. As a partner, you also need to know when to create that space and be there when they are ready for support and a listening ear. This will get you to a place of intention, and know where you are going, without sabotaging your growth as a couple or your business.
