Introducing Say Yes! with Carla Hall

0 Episode Rating

You might know Carla Hall from her time on Top Chef and as a TV personality on GMA and Netflix’s Crazy Delicious. But, the biggest moments in Carla’s life have come when she decided to face adversity head on. Her motto is ”say yes” to everything life throws your way. In her new Wondery podcast, ‘Say Yes with Carla Hall,’ Carla sits down with some of the most inspiring celebrity personalities and they explore their challenges and how they got to their yes. In the very first episode, Carla welcomes Kristen Bell. One of coolest things about Kristen is that she’s not afraid to share her messy side. She and Carla talk about why every marriage needs a good “housecleaning,” Kristen’s growth mindset, and how she is handling her kids’ distance schooling. And with more great guests to come like, Billy Porter, Martha Stewart, Gretchen Rubin, and Loni Love, “Say Yes” will motivate you to get to your yes in life, too. Listen at wondery.fm/sayyes_sfw.

Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and — yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we’re all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family.

We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on…or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that’s lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches.
