Recently stumbled upon Jeremy and his Podcast through another social media outlet and so happy I did! This a valuable and informative resource for Administrative Professionals. Looking forward to future episodes!

Great pod and opportunity to improve!!

I appreciate this podcast and have listened to ALL episodes. There’s not much out there for admin professionals so this is my go-to podcast right now. However, two things why I rated it 2 stars:

Show host Jeremy Burrows is a bit stuck in his interview technique and asks the same questions (in the same order) to EVERY guest. I’d like to challenge him to be a bit more dynamic and flexible... dig deeper when guests are sharing their stories and don’t just reply “that’s awesome” and jump on to the next question in your script. A podcast should be like listening to an actual conversation. Get the details and the how-tos from your guests and this will be such a great pod!!

Second: many guests on this show are no longer working as admin professionals/EAs. They have moved on and are running their own coaching/speaking/recruiting business. YAWN! How many of these people do we need? Where are the savvy professionals that are thriving as admin professionals RIGHT NOW and making big bucks and loving their jobs!? I know they are out there. I want to hear and learn from them. If not, this podcast is not for EAs, but rather for admin professionals who want to start their own business. I understand Jeremy is learning a lot from these people as he’s entering the entrepreneurial world himself... however, that’s not why I came here.

I’m sure this pod will improve and grow. And I look forward to tagging along as it does. Many thanks and keep up the good work!
