Beat-it-Nerd ,

Great resource!

Thank you so much for putting out such great content, Maven! As someone who is pivoting into the OM & EA space, this series has been extremely helpful. I’m looking forward to more episodes as you build this community!

Bravo!

I can totally relate to Tanya in Episode 8. It was so validating to hear someone give a voice to the passion that I have for my job and my relationship with my boss. I can absolutely relate to her belief that being a true business parter makes the role more interesting to the EA and valuable to the executive. Tanya's role is a more formal version of what my own has organically grown into. I really appreciated her insight and advice. Thank you for providing a platform for a role that, when done well, is a rewarding and fulfilling career.
