The quest to 500

After a year of listening to your amazing podcast and saying I will write a review, it was Sarah’s ask to get to 500 that made me finally do it.

This podcast motivates me to run on a Tuesday morning so I can listen to it. In a challenging career year, it provided tangible actions, acknowledgement, reflection and a source of connection through sharing with others. I’m a big fan of squiggly careers and this podcast is a must must listen to! Thank you for the work you both put into it!

Great ideas, well spoken, fantastic guests.

I’m new to your podcast. I can see why you are so popular.

Thank you Helen and Sarah!

Helen and Sarah- I’ve been routinely listening to your podcast for a while now, loving each and every episode. I’ve just listened to #150, and just wanted to say thank you so much! It’s been a tough couple weeks career wise and I really needed that pep talk. I have my action points now and it’s going to be a good week!
Keep being amazing!
