My favorite podcast & companion for long walks

The gold standard for career development advice for young women (and men) in the digital era! It’s my favorite thing to put on while going for a walk after a long day at work. It feels like I’m eavesdropping on the experienced friends and mentors I might never ever have yet they are still have at my fingertips thanks to Aliza. I’ve learned so many lessons, from the importance of having sponsors to boost your voice to the illusion of life-work balance as a young woman trying to build a home while making a career for herself. Most of all, I’ve felt inspired and encouraged to find a way to leave my mark. I was actually just put in charge of producing and launching a podcast for my company and I will be modeling a lot of my best practices after Leave Your Mark. Thank you again for being a constant inspiration and walking partner for this fellow redhead 💖

One of my favorite podcast

The advice that is shared and discussed throughout each episode is advice that would be an expensive monetary investment to learn and obtain really anywhere else. Aliza and the variety of guests on the show provide a wide spectrum of knowledge and expertise that can be applied to nearly any field of interest. Investing my time into listening weekly has been one of my most pleasurable and impactful investments to date!
