‘Have the Career You Want’ with Mel Savage is awesome!

This is a fabulous podcast for anyone who is questioning their career choice. I have first hand experience having Mel as my coach. She is a great listener, and offers practical strategies for moving forward. Mel will never tell you what to do but she will reflect your own thoughts back to you in such a way that they reveal new opportunities to you. She is a highly-skilled coach. I highly recommend Mel’s new podcast!
