Practical and inspiring

Finally a podcast that captures pivotal transition moments in the careers of rising creative leaders vs. those already at the top. Stories are relatable, timely, and inspiring all at once, leaving me feeling empowered to forge my own path and secure in the knowledge that the way up looks different today than it did a decade ago - and how that’s a good thing!

Keeps me ahead of the next gen of leaders

Love hearing the perspectives of the next gen leaders. Amazing to contrast the opinions and lessons here with what’s happening today to compare the mindsets. And Mat and Josh are just the best!

Quick hot, feel good

Short, but sharp and smart conversations. It’s uplifting to hear there are many ways to success and the most important thing is to enjoy the ride. Well worth the time.
