Not every bit of wisdom is immediately applicable to my particular situation, but her interviews are innovative and their subjects know their trade. Vicki, you really help add legitimacy to our profession and your enthusiasm is contagious. Great work!

How to make Priorities...

Seems like two really nice people. I heard a lot of validation to each other.
I also heard, ... in the teaching industry everyone validates that you’re supposed to work a lot.

You feel sorry that they think that way. And it’s a negative to not bring work home. So, I’m feeling a bit envious and wanting to know how to walk away from my job at the end of the day without bringing homework. The advice was never given. Just a commercial for your coaching. I’m sure it’s great. But I listen for 30 minutes… And I didn’t get the tip.

I’ll try another show, and see what happens.
