A podcast that is determined to break the norm. Two longtime friends, who are opposites in just about everything, come together to help you contemplate and contend with the “bS” that is in work, life and everything in between.
The b CAUSE podcast will take you into Erin and Nicole’s lives - on Nicole’s couch, to the streets and everywhere in between - while they explore authenticity in work...and in play.
Grab a drink, put your feet up and come along for a journey that will involve hysterics, unsanitized thoughts, career advice, random encounters, important guests and who the hell knows what else.
You Don't Have to Wear a Robe to Rule
What happens when you place the stat of your happiness on one thing? On your job, on the government, on just one person. Hint: likely nothing good.
In this week's episode, Erin and Nicole talk bout Ruth Bader Ginsberg's passing and how that could affect the nation.
The overarching lesson: you don't have to be a Supreme Court Judge to make an impact. You simply need to be willing to say the things people need to hear, when they least want to hear them.
Thoughtful Fearlessness with La-Toya Hackney
La-Toya Hackney joins the b Cause "couch" to talk about the "thoughtful fearlessness" she used to help her go from being a self-proclaimed nerd to the Senior Vice President for a global 500 company.
La-Toya shares her journey, including the four very powerful questions she uses to evaluate whether it's time for change or not. "You own your career", she says. And she shows you she's done just that for her own.
b Cause Work is Funny: Women's Conferences, Ice Breakers
Work has such funny shit, why aren't we laughing at it more?
Women's conferences are a treasure trove of brilliant ideas, awkward meetings, and straight-up bizarre situations. Especially when it comes to the techniques for ice breakers, like maintaining eye contact for 10 minutes.
From the co-hosts of the b Cause podcast with Erin & Nicole, they take to the coach to say the things you are thinking but are too afraid to say out loud (well, at least on the internet.)
74: It's The Small Things That Cause Big Transformation
We're all so programmed to do all the things. And do them quickly. But what might happen if you slow the ef down and give yourself permission to focus on small things? Hint: you'd see BIG transformation. In your work and in your life.
This week Erin and Nicole do a deep dive check-in on how Erin's TEDx Talk is coming along (live on October 10th!), and what they find are so many lessons learned that can be applied to all of career and life.
73: Getting Uncomfortable with Jean LaTorre
Often we have this perception of "woman at the top." They don't have kids. Or if they do, they must be willing to sacrifice so much for their career.
What if that wasn't how it had to be? Well, it's certainly not the case for Jean LaTorre. Jean talks about her rise from a family that had trouble making ends meet to becoming the Chief Investment Officer for a Fortune 50 company. And how she did that while remaining true to herself and her family.
Future Diary Follow-up: Building a Bridge to Your Dream Life
Erin and Nicole take you smack dab in the middle of their Future Diary process as it unfolds. Join alongside them as Nicole discovers a future she cannot live without, and Erin talks her through the steps to make it happen.
What did you write in your Future Diary? If you haven't yet written one, stop right there and carve out 30 minutes to make it happen! What one thing will you not compromise on having? And what one, first step will you take towards achieving it? It's truly that simple.
