Professionalism Inside and Out!

This is an amazing podcast that not only discusses topics on how to be a professional in a business setting, but also how to manage your life & activities outside the office. If you are looking for a self improvement podcast then look no further.

Smart content. Good pacing. All made better by the occasional clinking of drinks.

This is real talk from real professionals

Elli and Josh do a great job picking their guests and topics each week talking about real issues. These aren’t a couple of consultants talking about hypotheticals, these are real humans sharing their professional experiences. Highly recommended.
