Carla Hall has a mantra: “Say yes. Adventure follows, then growth.” Taking risks is how she became a world-renowned chef (two-time Top Chef Finalist) and television personality (Netflix’s Crazy Delicious, Good Morning America). All along the way, she’s had to deal with people saying “No" to her—a lot. And she’s not the only one.
On SAY YES!, Carla connects with people who've found success through adversity. In each conversation, her guests talk about how they overcame their own challenges, and how they keep going...even when it seems impossible. Because nobody’s life path is a straight line, and we can all learn from one another’s experiences.
Paul Scheer got his start in sketch comedy and improv, but he almost didn’t take an audition for FX’s The League because he didn’t want to try something new. But when he finally said yes, it turned out to be one of the biggest roles of his career. Paul (Black Monday, How Did This Get Made) talks with Carla about being open to new things, about their shared experiences at Catholic school, and how his kids are already turning into comedians. This week’s ingredient: make a list of what you did last week that made you happy, and set an intention to find the same mood this week.
