    Today we’re talking to Brianna Glenn, the owner and travel designer of Milk & Honey Travels, a boutique travel agency based in Los Angeles, CA.



    This episode is SUCH a treat! You’ll get to hear Brianna’s story of how her 10 year career as a professional track and field athlete, traveling for competitions all around the world, gave her an idea that would lead to her next purpose-filled career move. What I love most about this conversation is that Brianna is honest about the fact that a career pivot takes time. Her pivot included a two year venture into corporate America and another few years of hard work before her business idea became a fully built-out reality. Dreams take work, and time, and grit, but doing what you love and honoring who you are can be so rewarding.



    Whether you want to kickstart a career as a travel advisor (for an agency or self-employed), or start any kind of business of your own, you’ll love this conversation. Enjoy!

    The Job Library | Missionary Overseas

    The Job Library | Missionary Overseas

    Today’s podcast is a very special conversation with a friend who serves as a full-time missionary overseas! This is such a rich conversation, filled with wisdom and comfort in response to huge questions like:




    How do you really know when you’re called to do something?
    Particularly, how do you know if you’re really called to move to another country and share the gospel of Christ with a largely unreached people group? Is it fear and guilt talking, or is it God?
    HOW do you share the gospel with someone?
    How do you get over intimidating concepts like fundraising and overcoming the temptation to have a savior complex?
    How do you prepare yourself to move to another country?



    I know this conversation is about missions in particular, but it really felt like it was just about how to lead a faithful life as a follower of Christ, called to make disciples in all nations and in all sorts of ways. I know I'll be revisiting this episode again and again. I hope you savor this conservation as much as I did!

    The Job Library | Research and Development Engineer

    This episode is a very special conversation with Joel Sam, a multi-passionate creative who ALSO happens to love engineering and science! He’s gotten creative with carving out a unique career path within engineering, studying mechanical engineering for undergrad, materials science for his masters to satisfy his fascination with the science realm, and now he has a career at the intersection of both those worlds, working in research and development engineering (turning ideas into inventions!).



    I think EVERYONE could grow from listening to Joel’s fascinating perspective on how to find a career specialty within STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) that’s a great fit for your unique personality and set of interests. No matter if you’re methodical and like consistency, or a creative, idea-generating, people-person, there’s a place for you.



    I know you’ll love this episode (no matter if you’re interested in STEM or something totally different, or if you’re well into your career, or just now wrapping up high school) - this conversation spoke to the heart of getting creative with your career decisions to lead to a fulfilling role you’re excited and equipped to fill. Enjoy!

Faith and Work

It can be difficult to connect faith and work in a way that honors both realms, but Kelsey has clearly done the work to help us find the intersections and seek excellence in them.

Kelsey’s transparency and the trust she builds with each guest is inspiring to me!

She excels at keeping the LORD the focus of each conversation while imparting concrete and applicable wisdom to her listeners.

YES

This podcast is not only practical and helpful for my own career, but so fascinating! I love getting to hear so many different peoples’ stories as well as gain insight into such a vast array of different industries and careers. Thank you, Kelsey, for your wisdom, humor, and passion. Such a fun podcast!

Great podcast on the topic of music artist management industry

Really enjoyed this podcast. Such a fascinating industry with so many big and small parts that make up a dynamically moving whole for a music artist. I particularly resonated with the topic of copyrights (for melody and song itself, and for specific recording of song) as I dabbled a little with that years ago, as a local Christian music artist (not big time or anything like that, lol). Really enjoyed how Dylan explained this topic as well as all the other topics within management and production, touring, etc. Once again, Kelsey, you have offered a stellar podcast. Looking forward to more!
