Solid podcast with inspiring guests sharing uplifting and actionable stories. It speaks to people in their professional and personal lives - so, something for everyone! However, I would love to see more personal stories being shared here that might capture a broader audience (i.e., young professionals, students, entrepreneurs, stay-at-home parents, mothers, fathers, grandmothers/fathers, etc.).
