24: For When You Want a Raise (with Kathlyn Hart)

No one else is going to do it for us, so how can we ask for what we're worth? Kathlyn Hart has some (really good) ideas.

20: For When You Don't Know (Pt. 1)

In other words, all of us, almost always. It's just that sometimes that unknown is so scary and painful and uncomfortable, it seems like we'll never get out of it. Or worse: We won't be able to handle it. We forget to trust ourselves. At 21, Sarah started experiencing stomach pain. Flash forward ten years, lots more symptoms, and no answers. In this episode, you'll hear how she handled it and how we can all surrender to the unknown a little more. Head to or...


19: For When You Feel Small

AKA: For when you feel incapable or not good enough. Which is all of us from time to time, right? Whether it’s compared to what you’re facing, a dream you have, or another person, we can all feel like we don’t measure up. This episode is to remind you you don’t have to.


18: For When You're Never The Same

This week we tackle one of life's biggest curveballs: Parenting. Even if you chose it, becoming a parent has more unknowns, rollercoasters and struggles than most self-inflicted experiences. And even if you don't have kids or want them, your entire life can be turned upside down anytime. When you're in the thick of the terror and intensity, you NEED to know, "Am I going to make it through this?" New-ish parents, John & Bridget, are here to tell you--and so much more.

16: For When You Fail

Failing sucks. But turns out, not trying sucks more. Professional Failure, Allie, & I talk about her biggest ones, how they made her better, why we don’t have to love failure, but we don’t have to be so afraid of it, either.

15: For When You Procrastinate

For months, I did nothing but think about how much nothing I'd been doing. Because that felt easier than doing the thing that I knew I'd been avoiding (this podcast). My friend Catherine Smart--a cook with her own business and on TV, a writer, a mom--doesn't get stuck in that cycle. So I asked her what her secrets are (she's nice so she told me). Check out for notes on every show. Also let's do the thing on social media where you follow and like and comment and I remember...


14: For When You Need To Forgive

After nearly 10 years of not speaking, my friend finally let her dad back into her life. This episode is about what it took to do that.

07: For When You Want To Quit Your Job (Part 1)

When I first heard the voice to change careers, I told it to STFU. When that didn't work, I desperately sought advice from the internet, all of which was terrible. This is an attempt to fix that by showing how different this can look. Exhibit A: How to leap, from a guy who did it.
