Stay On (Your) Mat

Despite the absolute insanity of this moment, we’ve decided to post an episode we had previously taped, in the hopes that this conversation around what keeps you motivated, and how to stay centered might be helpful during this time. Also… if you need even more distraction? Do yourself a favor, and go binge watch Netflix’s “Cheer” after you listen to this episode. Go ahead, we’ll wait.

Hot Mic | What We Thought We Learned: “Are you a Producer or a Consumer?” | The Big Payoff

As we get ready for our summer break, we thought we would take a quick look back at an episode from March of 2018 that really felt life changing for us.

Until our producer, who NEVER wants to be heard on air, just couldn’t hold back this time.


Hot Mic | Nothing Easy About Touchy Feely | The Big Payoff

Stanford and Wharton MBA programs have rolled out new classes with a “touchy feely” curriculum. These are the softer skills– you know silly things like interpersonal dynamics, relationship building and how to authentically engage with others. Basically, everything we cover in this podcast. You’re welcome. What’s incredible is that these more intangible skill sets, the ones that make us better at our jobs and life, are not part of EVERY business school curriculum. We have thoughts, caught on tape.
