You are all in with your job, and it’s hard to separate your work life from personal life. You might even fantasize about being in a relationship with someone who allows you to engage in work-related pillow talk at all hours. But what if both you and your partner/spouse both need that kind of support and attention? Is that a dream, or a nightmare? We wanted to get the unphotoshopped scoop on what a committed relationship actually looks like between two, hard-driving entrepreneurs. We hit the jackpot when we decided to interview “it” couple Miki Agrawal, founder of Thinx, and her boyfriend (turned fiancé since we taped this show!) Andrew Horn, founder of Tribute. They joined us in the studio and agreed to give us their honest and raw he said/she said take on their relationship, Newlywed Game Style. This episode will make you stop and think about many, many things, and will help you answer the age old question, “Evening or morning sex?”
Shark Tank’s Daymond John shares why you should never stop feeling broke.
Daymond John, the fashion mogul and investor known as “the people’s shark” on Shark Tank, joined Rachel and Suzanne in the studio to share some incredible insights and lessons about how to harness the “power of broke”—and keep that mindset even once you start to make some (or even a lot of) money. There are so many moments in this podcast that really kicked us back on our heels, and also made us burst out laughing. And for Shark Tank fans, don’t worry: we get some juicy behind-the-scenes intel, including the real story behind “the biggest fight ever to take place on Shark Tank,” and the reason that he is now a beekeeper (we couldn’t make that up).
When you reach that moment when you’re asking yourself, “Is it time to move on?”, chances are, in your head, your head is already out the door and you’re dragging your feet to the office every day. While we wish we could come up with some great mantra to help you avoid getting to that point, it turns out…we don’t need to! On this episode we’ll share some truly sage advice on the secret to an amazing life from one of America’s icons: the great Norman Lear.
When you’re stressed out and overwhelmed, you are not your “best self.” Instead, you unleash your Inner Hulk, and it’s not pretty. Rachel and Suzanne reveal their own monsters, and we “call a coach” with expertise to tell us exactly what we can all do to tame the beast.
You might think that there’s nothing worse than being stuck in the office when your boss goes on Summer vacation. But what if her vacation is actually your moment to shine? Rachel and Suzanne share some truly cringe-worthy stories from their early careers, and offer (more mature) tips on ways to make the most of the Great Indoors while your boss heads to the beach.
In honor of this month’s Serena Williams Glamour cover, we are (re) posting our most listened to episode (so if you missed it, now’s your chance). Everyday we are reminded how women are judged by the way they look and behave. Photographer Kate Parker’s “Strong is the New Pretty” photo campaign flips all that. There’s no question that a woman’s power and strength comes from a hell of lot more than just her looks. Right, Hillary? This is a good one. Take a listen.

Unpaid internships during and after college have become the norm, an expectation that it is a necessary step to your brilliant future career. But is that really the right path? Is it ever a good idea to work for free? Is there a big payoff? Suzanne and Rachel take opposite sides on this debate and call an expert to weigh in and settle matters. Another “Ask Arthur” episode; he’s always got the answer.
It seems that some people are totally comfortable trusting their gut, and others second guess themselves into a hole. On this episode, Rachel and Suzanne ask: Is trusting your gut something that can be learned? How? In another “call a coach” segment, they get superstar CEO coach Strat Sherman on the phone, and what he shares knocks them back on their (high) heels.
You go into a meeting with a big idea. You lay it all out there with everything you’ve got. And then…blank stares.
