    Everyone says they want to be travel blogger. But it’s so much more than just taking candid photos with a pretty background. They are storytellers, writers, photographers all rolled into one. Bella started as as Admin on the BBC, made her own luck and became a documentary producer/director and here she is sharing how she learned to be a travel blogger!

    Really, how important is a degree? Jonaed Lqbal | Founder & CEO, NoDegree.com #23

    Really, how important is a degree? Jonaed Lqbal | Founder & CEO, NoDegree.com #23 
    They say that Education is the key to success. So des your Bachelor Degree determine how successful you will be? Does not having a degree mean you will not be successful at all? 
    For me going to school means more than just learning academically, it also means to learn about the importance of hard work, team work, how to communicate with different people, how to exchange ideas and learn self-awareness - which ironically I feel we are lacking very much in the world right now. 
    I have Jonaed on the show this week, the Founder & CEO of Nodegree.com, an online career resource for people without college degrees. 
    Jonaed wants to remove the stigma attached to people who choose not to pursue a college degree. He believes intelligent people come from all backgrounds and experiences, every job contributes value to society.

    Should you get a Mentor? 2022 LGBT+ Mentoring Programme - Scot Jones, Randell Aranza #22

    In today’s noisy world, it’s easy to lost sight on what we really want. There are distractions everywhere. I have been thinking about finding a mentor, but I don’t really know what is mentoring? Why should I get a mentor? How to even find the right mentor? 


    So when I was so excited to connect with Scot, the 2022 LGBT+ Mentoring Programme Manager, and here he is on the podcast sharing the story how this all came about. We even have Randell, a mentee of the programme to share his experience!

    Why is LinkedIn important? Why do you have a LinkedIn Profile? Karen Tisdell - LinkedIn Profile Writer, Trainer #21

    Why is LinkedIn important? Why do you have a LinkedIn Profile? Karen Tisdell - LinkedIn Profile Writer, Trainer #21

    I must admit as a recruiter, I never fully utilised LinkedIn as a platform. I, like many people uses LinkedIn because we feel we should be on there, it’s a platform to connect recruiter & candidates with job opportunities. But Karen has a very different angle of this, listen to the LinkedIn expert yourself!
