RoseCarriere ,

So entertaining and insightful

This podcast is an absolute delight to listen to and is so educating. Rob makes it easy to listen which is of essence for someone like me who tend to space off when there’s too much information at once and not enough interaction. I’ve also been able to apply the advice he provides here within my daily life not only as a law student and legal intern, but also as an aspiring solicitor. Not to mention within my role as head of social media for a small boutique law firm I am working for.

Thank you so much Rob and keep up the hard work!
