It’s about so much more!

The career change content is fantastic and provides practical advice and processes to help you make a change. But the additional focus on topics like mindset address the reasons why we do t make these changes. Well done!

Solid Career Advice

Been listening to this podcast for a few years now and always come back to it when I’m starting to feel like I’m in a rut. They do a great job with interviewing people with real-world challenges and are honest about what to expect.

Just bought the book since I’d like to have a hard copy to reference so I can outline what’s really important for my career path.
