AntoniaCezar ,

Wow, I wish I found this podcast earlier!

Often times career resources are narrowly focused on helping you in job searching or on the job promotion, but I love that this podcast is something you can keep listening regardless of where you are in your career. Whether you are looking for a change or you are happy in the spot where you are, there is so much great advice and amazing guests talking about important issues, from mental health to social justice in the workplace. I highly recommend, as this podcast will become my new companion in navigating work, parenting and daily challenges. 5 stars!!! @auntiefields

Simple wonder ,

A must for anyone who wants to be inspired!

I looove their podcasts! It makes me feel part of a community and gives me the motivation to be the best that I can be in my personal as well as my professional life. It gave me the courage to stop and think if my current job was right for me and take the step to get closer to my life goals!!

Informative and helpful

Great podcast! Not only entertaining but also lots of tips to implement ideas right away. Just listened to one of the older episodes with Bula Sokunbi (“I saved $100,000 in 3.5 years”) and thrilled it wasn’t another “don’t buy lattes” podcast. I grabbed a pen and paper and started working through my budget as I was listening along. Thank you! @flyingmartini
