Not all jobs suck. Talking about work with Reed Fish.

    Pro Poker Player Jeremy Kottler: If you’re winning, that means someone else is losing.

    Pro Poker Player Jeremy Kottler: If you’re winning, that means someone else is losing.

    Jeremy Kottler has won over $1.6 million playing poker professionally. In our chat, Jeremy gives insights into the technique of how pros approach the game and lets us in on the fact that he doesn't always use math to guide his decisions at the poker table. We also get into the highs and lows of being a professional gambler and learn how taking a poker sabbatical may have left him playing the best poker of his career. Even if you don't play poker, you will appreciate Jeremy's thoughtful approach and his candid retelling of some the struggles that brought him to this stage of career and life.

    Follow Jeremy on Instagram and see pictures of his dog, but not poker.

    Montessori Preschooler Mabel Fish: School is work and I love it!

    Mabel Fish, who, as she will readily tell you, is 4-11/12 years old and has been attending a small Montessori Pre-school since she was 2-1/2. In this episode she tells us about many of the different works she does at school (chain work, counting work, sewing work) and walks us through a typical day at school. She also explains why she loves school and how being peaceful makes her able to concentrate. This is a fun mini-episode to get Season 2 of Workin' It fired up again!

    Tesla Sales Rep Ignacio Anzaldo: Actually listening to clients is the way to sell $100,000 cars.

    Ignacio Anzaldo sold Tesla cars for over 2 years. He still drives one of the cars and in this episode, gets back to his roots by letting Reed take a test drive. Ignacio also clues us in to how he knows if you're a serious buyer just by how you walk up to the dealership and we learn how he was able to convince adversarial clients to eventually buy a $100,000 car. He also tells us how he was able to blow past his 25 cars per month sales goal and relates how being the child of immigrants shaped his career path. Listen to this enlightening conversation and find out if self-professed anti-Tesla guy Reed, finally has his mind changed about the cars!

    Wilco Keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen: Wilco does, indeed, love you.

    Wilco Keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen: Wilco does, indeed, love you.

    SPECIAL NOTE: At the end of this episode, hear the brand-new, unreleased, Wilco song, White Wooden Cross. 

    Mikael Jorgensen is the keyboardist for Wilco, one of the most celebrated indie rock bands of the last 25 years. In our conversation we find out if a degree from DeVry University is essential to being in the band and try to get to the bottom of just what's up with the water pressure at the Wilco Loft. We also chat about the logistics of being on tour and how the band never takes their fans for granted.  Getting a behind-the-scenes peek at this amazing band was such a treat.

    Wilco's new album, Ode to Joy is out on October 4th.
