Super inspiring!

All of these episodes are superb; it’s hard to single just one out. That said, the episode with Ara Katz really resonated with me. It has great, concrete advice, plus big picture ideas that are totally up my alley.

Also, the one with Kristy Hurt indirectly led me to her networking group, The Co-lab, of which I am a founding member. The group is amazingly helpful, informative, and supportive.

Thank you Aliza Licht for these amazing podcasts!!

Informative & Inspiring

Ever since I came across Aliza’s book “Leave Your Mark” on Audibles, I have been addicted to her content. After finishing the book, I needed more from her so I searched looking to see if she had a podcast and of course she did! I have been listening to her podcast ever since. I love hearing about others’ stories within their career life. I find it to be inspiring and I take down plenty of tips that I can bring to my own career.

Whether you’re just starting out, breaking barriers, or simply in need of a bit of inspiration, Leave Your Mark is for you. Aliza and friends do not disappoint! 💪🏼
