BEST PODCAST FOR CEO’s

Sooo I started my own CEO journey a couple of months ago, terrified and also excited. I’ve been seeking mentorship outside of my career to help with how to stay organized, inspiration to get creative and overall make sure I’m taking care of myself in between all the moments. My self development go-to in my business is THIS podcast PLUS I’ve looked up to Suneera for over 3 years now when I started following her on IG. She’s truly someone I admire and look up to in hopes one day I can be just as successful as she is! 🤍🤍🤍 HANDS DOWN THE BEST CONTENT!!!! FIVE STARS!
