Navahoes ,

Thank you so much!

I just listened to the very first episode. This is exactly what I have been needing. I'm a Junior in college and you can bet that I'm going to be listening to every single episode you have to offer.

Thanks for taking the time to pass on your knowledge for us

CAToolbox ,

Great tips for aspiring actuaries!

The podcast and a lot of the other resources on the Actuarial Journey website are both useful and free.

Lots of actionable tips to help aspiring actuaries pass their exams and find jobs. This is a great, and much-needed, resource for anyone who wants to become an actuary.

Take & Talk Pics ,

motivate Actuaries and master it!

Nemo knows his stuff. In the confidence episodes I pulled a ton out of it. More like Life Journey. :)
