ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Defining career success is simple: what do you want, what is the price you have to pay to get it, and are you willing to pay the price? Simple, yes. Easy, nope! Just the first part, knowing what you want, can be the journey of a lifetime. In episode 7 of NGDWTB, I share stories from my life and career and what they taught me about defining success on my own terms.

Episode 10: Runner's High with Bala

On episode 10 of NGDWTB, we hear from Bala Sankaran, former Twitter VP and current CEO of Alpha Ori Technologies. Shortly after trying his hand at running ten years ago (which is a hilarious story in and of itself), Bala became a certified coach through Road Runners Club. The first group he coached included his 9 year old daughter and her friends, all of whom completed their first half-marathon shortly afterward. Several years later, his community of runners has grown to over 150 people, most of whom are kids and their parents, and together they have finished 100+ races. In this episode, Bala tells us how he’s been able to inspire and motivate so many kids to achieve goals they never thought possible.

Episode 8: The Tyranny of Childcare

Washing machines, electric ovens, and the birth control pill. These modern inventions liberated women from repetitive, time-intensive tasks that dominated their daily life in the early 20th century, ultimately paving the way for them to enter the workforce en masse. But without any new domestic-related innovations or technology since the pill came out in 1960, women are spending just as much time today on domestic chores as they were 60 years ago. In episode 8, I talk about the tyranny of childcare and offer a new perspective on how to solve it.
