Sup babes. Today we're talkin' control - what it feels like when you have it and what it feels like when you don't. And how to regain a sense of control when you lose it.

Hot Take #32: Everything Everywhere All At Once

by Sara Pion and Bridget Poetker

Like no one is having a good time right now. What with the.... state of the US government, the world, and trying to get back to normal when things aren't normal, companies haven't figured out how to adjust and create employee engagement programs without culture being implied by an office. And it's starting to show with the great resignation, everyone feeling burnt out, people quitting their jobs left and right, and an overall bad vibe in the air. Companies need to use the money they're saving in rent and put it towards making their employees happy. Cause right now we're all tired, kind of sad ..read more

Hey bestie. You asking yourself if it's time to find a new job? Or you're questioning how you know when it's time to find a new job? News flash - that probably means it's time for a new job.

It's ok not to be a team player if the game is fundamentally rigged against you. So we're joined by the one and only John Thomas Lang who drops some knowledge on looking out fo ..read more

Dudes. Like. We have so much time to figure it out. To figure out what we want our next move to be. To figure out what our career should look like. To figure out what we're going to focus on at work next quarter. Big things don't happen in 24 hours. Big things happen over weeks, months, and years. It's ok to have shitty days and shitty weeks. Because as long as you're moving forward, things are happening, you are changing, and you're getting closer.  -- Make sure to leave a review and subscribe so we can keep making dope ass content for you.

Hot Take #28: Act More Senior Than You Are
Self Control & Cheese: Shit No One Talks About at Work
by Sara Pion and Bridget Poetker

Basically - fake it till you make it. People newer to the working world, and especially underrepresented minorities in the workplace, aren't as likely to act like they're levels above what they actually are in the workplace. But that's exactly what we should all be doing - managing up, faking it until we make it, doing the job we want before we get promoted into it (up until a certain point) all helps you grow in your career. It helps you show your managers that you are incredibly capable of doing your job, it allows you to work on projects that you actually want to work on, and it shows your ..read more

Hot Take #27: You Can Like Your Job Without It Being Your Life

Hi friendsssss. There's a reason we started this podcast - because we liked the work that we do, we're damn good at it, and we grew quickly to where we wanted to give tips to people who were in a similar boat. All of this to say, it's 10000% ok to like your job, to love your job even, but you still don't have to make your entire life your job. Balancing what makes you passionate in life (you should have more than 1 passion, in our opinion) can help you show up stronger and better when you're not hyper focused on one thing. Don't put all your eggs in one basket alright everyone? Enjoy. -- Make ..read more
