The Biggest Lie We Tell Ourselves | The Big Payoff @DailyWorth | Episode 1  

We all say it too often, and we’re calling bullsh*t. We get to the bottom of this with Michelle Smith of WorthFM. If you don’t have 25 minutes to listen to a podcast episode that may just change your life, well, we don’t believe you.

Strong is the New Pretty | Episode 63  

In honor of this month’s Serena Williams Glamour cover, we are (re) posting our most listened to episode (so if you missed it, now’s your chance). Everyday we are reminded how women are judged by the way they look and behave. Photographer Kate Parker’s “Strong is the New Pretty” photo campaign flips all that. There’s no question that a woman’s power and strength comes from a hell of lot more than just her looks. Right, Hillary? This is a good one. Take a listen.

The dilemma of the unpaid internship | Episode 62  

Unpaid internships during and after college have become the norm, an expectation that it is a necessary step to your brilliant future career. But is that really the right path?

Another “Ask Arthur” episode; he’s always got the answer.

Learn to trust your gut | Episode 61

Radio rock star turned tech entrepreneur Jennifer Brandel reveals the secret to getting audiences to pay attention. Sometime you just gotta flip things upside down.

What are you waiting for? | Episode 59  

We are all waiting for something. For the next job offer. For better weather. For the prospective client to return our call. But when you are waiting instead of doing, you get nowhere fast. Rachel and Suzanne give you a much needed kick in the butt, including a “call a guru” moment with none other than their media coach, Hank Norman. Hank? You there? Pick up. Don’t make us wait.

We are revisiting a favorite past show about what happens in a relationship when it’s the woman who brings home the bacon. This show contained some priceless moments, including a reveal about a 70’s era commercial, as well as plenty of rough and tumble exchanges among Rachel, Suzanne and their expert guests Amanda Steinberg and Michelle Smith of WorthFM. Things heat up, enough to fry it up in a pan.

Why every woman needs to learn to play poker | Episode 57  

A great poker player is patient, calculating, pays attention, and is not afraid to take a gamble. Hmm… where else could these skills and traits possibly come in handy? Rachel and Suzanne share their best moves, and then talk with Ellen Leikind, founder of Pokerdivas.com and author of “Poker Women: How to Win at Love, Life, and Business Using the Principles of Poker.” As they say in poker, she’s got the nuts.

You’re gonna be old school one day soon.  | Episode 54  

Feeling like you can’t keep up in today’s workplace or just don’t want to? You’re not alone. By 2020 75% of the workforce will be millennials and you don’t want to be in the corner mumbling to yourself “kids today…” What’s the alternative? Listen in and find out….
