Style at Work ,

Top Podcast!

I was drawn to this podcast by Heather’s authenticity and honesty about overcoming her villains in today’s workplace. An avid listener, I look forward to each week and the valuable insight that Heather provides in the face of adversity. My favorite line from Heather I quote is “done is better than perfect”. Keep the episodes coming!

I truly enjoy Heathers show and her willingness to disagree with her guest. The perfection episode 287 for example.

Nina from SRQ ,
