The premier podcast for high achievers and high performers

Are you tired of pretending that everything is perfect and that you’re exceeding at everything you do? Join us to have authentic conversations about high performance, mental health, chasing perfection, and life as we tackle the idea that the appearance of outward success often leads to the assumption of perfect mental health.

Hosts Lauren Williams and Rob Kalwarowsky are on a journey to normalize the conversation around mental health for successful people one episode at a time.

Our Story

We wanted to create a community for high achievers and high performers

As former college and professional athletes we entered into a work/life environment where we were expected to hold up the high standards of success we experienced in athletics. We soon discovered that the appearance of success was more important, and often came at the expense of, mental health.

We saw the need to create space for those successful people struggling on the inside. We looked to dismantle the common narrative that outward success immediately means success everywhere by having conversations with fellow high performers and high achievers about their struggles and successes.

I am glad this topic is brought to the attention of our community. Many of us are either affected directly or may be dealing with loved ones suffering mental issues. Mental health is more common than we may think it is and you don’t notice it until you are somehow affected!

I love how you are calling attention to high performers who struggle with mental health as they are excelling to anyone who looks from the outside! The message to all you getting stuff done while struggling “ask for help” we give you permission and are hear for you if you want to talk🥰
