Sarah Robb O'Hagan has been described as Superwoman, undercover. She's been named one of Forbes' most powerful women in sports and one of Fast Company's most creative people in business. This woman is unmatched. She's been the global president of the $5,000,000,000 sports brand, Gatorade, where she led the business through a major repositioning and business turnaround. She has also held senior positions at Nike, Virgin Atlantic, Atari, served as the global president of Equinox and currently she's the CEO of Flywheel Sports. If there was such a thing as a resume-off, Sarah would win. There aren't too many people, if anyone, that has a portfolio of brands of this caliber that they've led, but it hasn't always been a smooth ride for Sarah. In fact, she gets squirmy when people read bios because she knows they're not the whole truth.

Sarah keeps it real in this episode. She is very candid about her career, what's gone wrong, why it went wrong, how you can leap frog her lessons and everything in between. She gives invaluable interviewing advice, and we also learn how career trajectories aren't always linear. Sarah recently called a timeout to write her book titled “ExtremeYou - Step Up. Stand Out. Kick Ass. Repeat.”, so get your pen and paper or your notes app out, because this one is stacked with takeaways.

Songwriter, CEO and host of the "Don’t Keep Your Day Job" Podcast, Cathy Heller, is a “Yes and...” person. She's added layers to her career and her livelihood over time; adding things that she loves to do. Rather than just switching gears and completely changing paths, she's actually just added certain things and been able to have a portfolio of different tracks as her career.

One of the things this allows us to understand is that you don't have to necessarily choose just one career focus anymore. You can have a variety of different layers to diversify your skills, passion and interest. When you hear from Cathy in this episode, you will notice that she has such a zest for life and has a lot of valuable advice when it comes to identifying what you are assigned to do in this lifetime, what you're here for and how to find that thing, or that set of things.

Cindy Eckert has built and sold two pharmaceutical companies and she's the creator of the Little Pink Pill. Cindy exited that company for more than a billion dollars, and in total has $1.5bn worth of exits, but who's counting? Right? Cindy writes her own rules and defines what it means to be a renegade. The woman is unapologetically true to herself and it's serving her very, very well.

Over the last couple of years, Cindy has created and been running The Pink Ceiling, which is the cross between a VC fund, an incubator, and a consulting firm with a focus on women and female entrepreneurs. Cindy was recently quoted in Entrepreneur magazine saying “The injustice I'm fighting with The Pink Ceiling is not only women's limited access to capital, but also their limited access to mentors.” She's also been quoted in Fortune Magazine saying that her investment strategy is to quote "Make other women really f'n rich" end quote. The renegade mentality that this woman has can help anyone, and the things that Cindy shares in this episode are specifically applicable to anyone who's looking to tackle their Why Not Now?
