9 Year Age Gap and the Secret to Making a Difference, Get Weird With CJ + Kelly Casciotta
Uniquely Matched with CJ + Kelly Casciotta
“I feel super, super blessed everyday that I married someone who is up for the adventure,” says CJ Casciotta of his wife Kelly. When CJ, speaker and author of Get Weird: Discover the Surprising Secret to Making a Difference, appeared on writer Kelly’s porch as the only stranger in a group of friends, they couldn’t possibly have foreseen the path that lay ahead of them. A year later, they found themselves on that very same porch as CJ proposed lifelong partnership. Since then, CJ and Kelly have been discovering and embracing their weird through the joys and hardships of marriage, entrepreneurship and parenthood.
Join us this week as CJ and Kelly share the fears of their early relationship, the bravery, faith and love that helped them overcome it and how discovering and utilizing your unique weird may just be the secret to becoming a better leader, partner and parent.
