So helpful & entertaining

I love this podcast! It helped me feel so much more secure in my major/career choice and made me feel a lot less stressed about my future! Love the content and all of the guest speakers. After hearing their career path and how they found their passion I feel so much more freedom and hope for my own future and what it holds. I look forward to tuning in every week!
