Hey hi welcome this is Self Control & Cheese.

We started this podcast, like everyone else, while we were living, working, and surviving at home during COVID-19.

But we want to keep things fun, keep things fresh, and keep things real. That's kind of our thing.

We're two 20-somethings that have seen our fair share of things, working at two of the fastest growing Tech companies in the United States.

Come hang out with us! Seriously, we have an email list, come hang out with us: https://selfcontrolandcheese.com/join-us

    Hot Take #3: I Don't Give A Fuck If You Work For Google

    Hot Take #3: I Don't Give A Fuck If You Work For Google

    Here's the thing. Just because a name looks bright and shiny on your resume doesn't make you valuable. Anywhere. To anyone. 
    Chances are if you join a giant company like Google or IBM or Facebook or Amazon right out of college you're pat on the back, told you did a good job, and then get to work crazy hours on busy work that doesn't have a direct impact on the company. 
    CONGRATS!! 
    But seriously, the clout of working for those big name brands isn't always as valuable as having direct business impact to smaller, more agile companies who are having more fun anyway. Even if no ones heard of them.
    So. We don't give a fuck if you work for Google. Woop de frikin doo.

    3. Get Your Side Hustle On with Connor Gross

    3. Get Your Side Hustle On with Connor Gross

    Well shoot, it's another episode of Self Control & Cheese. OUR FIRST GUEST. Today, we're talking all about side hustles and how to make a little extra money with the king himself, Connor Gross.

    Obviously, this podcast is our side hustle (of a few, whoops) but Connor is smarter than us. He knows his shit about direct to consumer products and brands, and drops some serious knowledge about how to start one of your own (and what he’s learning along the way.)

    Connor is currently a Product Marketer at Privy, did more than a few co-ops while in school, and he’s already sold a business, Cardly, was featured in Forbes, and did this all before he graduated college. NBD.

    So essentially, we brought him on the pod to hopefully learn something so we can have a fraction of his success in our own side hustles.

    Hot Take #1 : Content Creators Aren't Your Idols

    Hot Take #1 : Content Creators Aren't Your Idols

    Sup friends. What's that? An episode of Self Control and Cheese THIS WEEK? Yeah, we decided we're gonna do mini-episodes every other week called Hot Takes. 

    That means one week you get a whole ass episode and then the next week you get a lil hot take to hold you over until the next episode. 

    So here's 3:45 (plus the theme song) on why you don't need to idolize content creators when your job literally isn't to be a full time, lifestyle content creator ok?? You're doing great, proud of you.

    2. Impatience Is a Virtue

    Oh would ya look at that, it's another episode of Self Control & Cheese. Today, we're talking about something Sara and Bridget are straight up terrible at: Being Patient. In work and in life.

    We don't want this podcast to be us tooting our own horn, so we got right on into talking about something we're both working on. Cause we're human and we're 20-somethings and we are FIGURING IT OUT.
