Feels like my big sisters are talking to me!

I graduated college 2 years ago, so I really appreciate listening to this podcast. I’m navigating being successful in my career, making friends after college, etc. and it feels like Syd and Breanna are my older sisters, addressing things I might be thinking about improving in my life. Love it!
