Great show!

I love Heather’s straightforward advice and her focus on helping women excel in their careers. She’s moving to serving all professional, ambitious women, but I most love the episodes that provide specific advice to lawyers. Her rise through the ranks of her former firm gives her so much insight into reaching success in a firm. Either way, I almost always come away with a new actionable tip or something that makes me think differently listening to her show.

Best podcast

This is my favorite podcast! I listen to Heather Hubbard and feel inspired to take action. Every episode is full of insight and always interesting. The Get It Done Challenge and planning programs are a must do!!!

My Mentor in a Podcast!

I have been practicing law in small town, North Carolina for just over 12 years after hanging my shingle straight out of law school in 2007. While I have an amazing, older (male) law partner mentor, there are so many things about the business side of practice that I know I need to evolve to grow in the future - including my own productivity and efficiency. I just started listening to podcasts in 2020 and this was the first - and the best! Heather is not only a great advisor, she is so easy to listen to and I feel so comfortable taking her advice! This podcast has given me so much drive to improve my practice in 2020! Thank you!
