Valuable, Educational & FUN!

I listen to business podcasts so I can learn something new then immediately take action. The Corporate Dropout helps me do that. The episodes are quick, fun & full of value, which I LOVE. These ladies are the real deal and they've curated a show that I love to listen to!

Smart women. Smart podcasts.

Every episode I’ve listened to is smart, relevant and helpful. April and Rachel are curious and they ask good questions. I was honored to be involved in one episode - and I look forward to future episodes. There’s a lot to learn about building lasting and successful organizations. But, “The Corporate Dropout” podcast will definitely point us in the right direction.
