Don’t Need No Motihation

During an Instagram live last week, Ashley accidentally said “motihation” instead of motivation, and just like that, this episode was born!

While we were sure we had stumbled onto an entirely new concept, some light Googling after the fact revealed that motihation has been a thing for a while now.

Nonetheless, we are here to explore the concept of motihation, what it means, and what happens when motivation crosses the line into motihation.
