Money has always been a taboo topic. Most of our decisions are made with money in mind, yet we don't feel comfortable talking about it with people outside our close-knit circles, usually just within our immediate families. Yet when we keep our money concerns private, it can create stress, insecurity and feelings of hopelessness. Our goal today is to crack open the door and encourage all of us to be more open about this previous...

Today we talk all about coaches. When we look back and think about the people who have played impactful roles in our lives, coaches always stand out. But at some point, after our youth athletic careers are over, most of us never work with coaches again. That's what we explore today including:

  • Examples of great coaches in our lives
  • The best coaches expect a lot from you - which in return teaches you to expect a lot from yourself

    This topic is perfect for the holidays. While some of us are able to find and connect with our people during this time of year, many others go through huge waves of loneliness - from loss, distance or pandemics. While we want it to be a time of connection, it is often the opposite. 

    Instead of feeling despondent and helpless, we share some ideas on how you can take action and find your people.

    We're back! With a new name and an even more candid format. 

    The truth is - we were asked to change our name by another organization with the same name. We took it as a sign that we needed to mix things up. So we took the summer off and came back swinging.

    Welcome to The Yoga Pants Podcast!

    Two years ago, Nicole received an email from Sarah Ratzlaff, a follow up from six months prior when Nicole was looking to do a cross-promotion for her business Skirt Sports.

    Thus began one of the most important relationships in both of their lives, and the framework for the baton hand-o...
