Farnfan ,

Tremendous resource!

You have to look after your own career. The idea that simply doing good work will get you to the next level rarely works - people have to know about you and what you do. This is all the more important in this era of remote work.

Whether you’re 25, 55, or in between, Loren’s podcast packs great info into 30 minutes each week that will help you shepherd your career to the next step. It not only gives you access to great guests, but it also provides a roadmap to delve deeper into specific subjects that are most helpful to you.
