The Spark with Stephanie James
The Longevity of Love; A User's Guide with Gene Gates
Gene Gates is an exceptional human being. He is truly one of the funniest and most open hearted people I have ever met. His current career is as the president of Gene Gates & Associates, a full-stack sales, marketing, communications, and podcast company and president of Podcast Architecture.
For over two decades he and his wife were hosts of an award winning morning radio show, The Gene and Julie Show.
When Gene and Julie Gates wed in the middle of Grand Central Terminal, the New York Times covered the story. When Oprah Winfrey heard about them, she booked them on her talk show. Gene & Julie hosted an award-winning American radio show in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas and Raleigh. They have been deemed a “Power Couple” by Grand Luxe Magazine, “People We Love” by D Magazine and the National Association of Broadcasters awarded them the “Oscar” of the industry: the Marconi Radio Award. As parents, Gene & Julie have a soft spot in their hearts for kids. They helped raise over $4.5 million for children’s hospitals and have been honored with two Wishmaker Awards from the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In this episode, we talk about the longevity of love and the tools that make a lasting and beautiful relationship possible.
