Eyes wide open

I just listened to the episode on Ageism with Walter Geer! I am that Gen X black women you were describing. This podcast has really helped me to understand that I need to position myself to thrive as a Gen X entrepreneur looking to connect with other businesses.

Only other Gen X leaders know this to be true. Hire Gen X talent! It will be a wise investment into the longevity of any business.

Thank you for the reminder that my expertise, talent and wisdom is still valuable. This episode has put a fire in my belly!

One of the best business podcasts out there!

Adrion's spot on about the "forgotten" generation X and empowering the next generations. One of the best business podcasts about marketing, leadership, management and more. So glad that I found your podcast!

Found another great podcast

I’ve found my new favorite podcast! As a GenX-er, I love the opportunity for targeted messages to those in our generation. And...I’ve been a PCB fan and unofficial mentee since the Mentor Monday days! So when I saw your podcast with Paul as the guest (via LinkedIn), I had to check it out. I was glad to hear three of his consistent messages:
*The importance of diligence and preparation.
*Quality over quantity.
*Being world class.

Looking forward to checking out the podcast catalog.
