Made me uncomfortable

Why it made me uncomfortable? Because it was everything I wanted to hear to get excited again about getting out of my comfort zone and hold myself accountable. Getting myself back on track and make changes. just listening to these podcasts gets the fire started and even though I don’t know where to start from, I know I have to start..! Things will fall in its place. I highly recommend this podcast to all those people waiting for that nudge to move forward or wake up. Listen to it. You’d be thankful.

Entrepreneurial Awakening!

I’ve been listening to the podcast since the pandemic hit, and am constantly inspired and motivated to believe in myself and my vision. So grateful for the insightful guests and relatable topics. As a first time female CEO, I turn to CEO School as my source of learning and to help set my weekly intentions. Thank you!!
