You don't have to be in B2B

So I'm stuck at home as most everyone else is and I need something uplifting to listen to but that also makes me feel like I'm working. This podcast nails it on all fronts - even if you aren't "in the industry!"

An empowering podcast

I discovered this podcast last month and have listened to all of the interviews! Listening to the journeys of these women from various background and careers made me realize that I’m not alone in navigating a male dominated industry. What’s more important are the shared experiences and tips from these women that is truly inspiring and empowering.
