From a Boutique Employee

I recently started this to see if I could learn anything or get ideas to put forward at my job (PT Assistant Manager @ local boutique). The self love episode though 🙌🏼 it actually helped with a lot of my personal life and goals on top of my professional life. I’ll continue to listen and see what else I gain from previous and future episodes, even if it’s not created directly for someone in my position.
