McKaylie Pruitt ,

This info is worth millions!

I’ve been a huge fan of Isaac’s since hearing him speak in 2014. I’m a fan of the Praxis Forward Tilt podcast — so I was absolutely delighted to see that a new podcast is airing!

Thankfully, Career Crashers surpassed the high expectations I had before actually tuning in.

The way we’re taught (brainwashed) to approach our careers/personal development is completely outdated. My exposure to this material has changed my life, by helping me to ACTUALLY bring value to the table in a professional environment. These small, yet potent, talks have given me wisdom that I would consider the foundation of my livelihood.

I don’t even have a college degree, but I’ve landed amazing jobs because of this advice.

This information is truly more valuable than I could ever express.
