What a great concept!

There needs to be more podcasts like this. Finding joy at work is a forgotten skill that should be prevalent in any office. I hope spreading the message will give the gentle reminder that everyone needs to put their happiness first in their careers.

Really good perspective

This is a such a great reminder to take a step back and focus on what’s important at work and in your life. If you think about how many hours we spend working / connected...it’s all encompassing! This podcast is a great way to refocus.
