Have you ever had a job you hated? Have you ever had to hire someone? The frustration of the process of getting a job is so similar to going to the DMV. It’s the same frustration level on both sides. We can’t fix the DMV but we CAN rock the hiring process. The Sisarina Crew gets together at the Bikram Podcasting Studio (ha!) at Sisarina HQ to share the horrible things they’ve seen at their own jobs, the insanity of the hiring process, and what they've had to do to pay rent. We talk about how culture = profitability, how to research to make sure you’re the right fit for the job, and also how to make sure employees are happy. In this episode, you’ll find out why the Sisarina Crew likes to hang out together and how that camaraderie changes the perspective you have on the normal weekday drudgery. We even leave you with our top tips for how to find the best possible job for you. Shoutout to Rob Bell and the RobCast at the very end.

You've been working on your purpose. You've figured out what you want to do with your life. But what happens next? How do you make sure your purpose flows through every part of you? Rebecca & I let you in on the secrets of discovering your calling, the touchpoints in your personal AND business brand, finding your ambition, and knowing what the heck to do with it all. We discuss people who are living on purpose, how Rebecca pushed me outside my comfort zone to think about my own purpose, her journey from fat-shaming herself to coming out, and both of us stepping fully into our own design. Rebecca even surprised me with how her mom forecasted what she was meant to do - and her mom was RIGHT! In this episode, you'll hear more about how you have to get off the couch and DO something. You can't skip to step 82, you have to start at step 1.

Being Yourself, Staying Inspired, and Loving Every Minute What happens when you bring an ex-entrepreneur on as your second in command? You get sh*t done! Rebecca Gunter and I have known each other for YEARS. When she joined the Sisarina Crew in August 2015, we had no idea she would go from being a momentary fill-in to our Chief Coffee Officer rocking projects, front-line sales, and general rockstardom in branding. And I get to interview her on the podcast! Rebecca brings her full self to the microphone and tells us about her how her 8-year-old daughter Lucinda’s energy and her dad thriving with Dementia keeps her inspired. Lately, Rebecca is learning a ton about cultural things, #thingsmillennialsdo, and technology from the younger generation around her along with marketing, copywriting, and branding. Tony, our podcast producer, snuggles with her, she comes out of the closet & tells us how she's decided to love herself as she is, and explains how she knows what people need before they know themselves. In this episode, you’ll get the inspiration to be yourself, no matter what other people are trying push on you. Plus, you’ll find out why I love Rebecca so darn much.
