Such an amazing podcast 😍
This is the podcast the world needs!! I’m just out of college and fairly new to the workforce so I’m constantly trying to find ambitious women role models to look up to and learn from. Sadly, that’s easier said than done, so I think that what this show is doing – highlighting successful and powerful women – is incredibly important.
