    Black Content Creators-Patrice Lindo- "The Before You Quit Coach"

    Over the last few years, LinkedIn has evolved from being just a sterile platform made up of those who are just 'looking to make connections' to becoming an inclusive and dynamic space. This is largely due in part to the work of Black Content Creators who have brought their views, opinions, and life journeys to LinkedIn. 

    Content creating is hard, but being a Black content creator is harder!

    We speak with Patrice Lindo about her career journey, how and why she started creating content as well as the pros and cons!

Needed Information

Very impressed with your podcast. Though I am now retired, I find it to be informative for Black folks who are actively working; especially for young folks who are starting out their careers. My respectful feedback is to suggest that you indicate on episodes when the podcast was completed (date); include more details with name and title of your guests; any other program notes; links to articles/sources that can lead to further research and study.
