Work IS broken - Laurie helps

Love this podcast! Sharing so much relevant info to help people love/survive work. I know it’s from last year, but I really enjoyed episode #184 so much because it provided a real look into the “great resignation” and gives actual strategies to manage the stress of working right now. Laurie provides great ideas to help you look at the bigger picture of your worklife to help you balance it. She also made me laugh. Thanks Laurie!
