Nothing more genuine and sincere than this!

Just watched episode 1 and it’s fantastic! Very genuine and sincere and I could “feel” what you are feeling. Thank you for OFF, a good resource for us over fifty and fired! Can’t wait for the next episode!

Home Run

Very well done. Folks like to know they are not 'the only one' and your sharing of your experience is very reassuring. With all the positive economic news and announcements of companies expanding their businesses, now is a great time to be looking for new challenges. Looking forward to hearing your next 'pearls of wisdom'

Insightful and Authentic

Thanks to Linda and Shelley for sharing their experience so openly and candidly. Anyone who has left a company, thinks they might leave a company or is an old-timer who thinks they won't ever leave a company can benefit from this podcast. Linda and Shelley are sharing their journey in a way that is real and personal, but also in a way that welcomes others to be part of this experience. Thank you for your wisdom, your candor, your humor and (of course) your wine recommendations!
