Episode #18 - Dr. Jess Baker: Know Thy Strengths

I knew Jess Baker for a LONG time before recording this podcast and right around the 50 min mark I learned that she has a PhD is Nuclear Physics. It sort of blew my mind and we spent a large portion of this show talking about that. One thing that struck me when talking to Jess is her extreme humility. I can definitely learn something from her in that regard, but tucked behind her hidden PhD is a subtle confidence that was forged through years of focusing on her strengths both as an athlete and as a scientist. I hope you listen and learn as much about Jess as I did when I recorded it. [0:00] Jess Baker does Naval Warfare modeling [15:00] Jess and Sean talk Leadership [30:00] Etiquette on a Submarine if you get the chance to ride on one [45:00] Upstate New York [50:00] Sean finds out that Jess Baker is Dr. Jess Baker in NUCLEAR PHYSICS! ...and we talk about this fact for a LONG time [1:20:00] Jess and Sean talk about cool things science has created [1:30:30] What Jenn is working on to...

Episode #17 - Kara Britanik: Discovering Your Passion

Kara is one of our coaches and runs Old City’s admin email. My conversation with Kara covered a lot about her background, but quickly pivoted into a chat about discovering your passion and taking steps to living a more passion filled life. Kara took small steps towards happier employment, and now instead of one big traditional job, Kara is much happier doing 4 smaller, part time jobs. Check out this conversation to get ideas on how to take small steps to being happier with the work that you do on a daily basis. [0:00] How Kara likes her coffee. [6:00] Living the cubicle life, and how to transition out of them into more passion filled work. [16:00] Kara’s background in exercise science [30:00] Learning new things, and the role of different coaches [45:00] Small steps to take towards more passionate employment, and how Kara approached those challenges [58:00] Follow your passions [1:11:00] What would you do with your life if you didn’t need money [1:19:30] Don’t stop learning and ...
