Game changer!

Little did I know that episode 121 would change my future. Listening to Emily speak I felt as I was listening to my story. It gave me the push I needed to grow. Believe in my strengths and abilities that have always been valued (just weren’t with a new boss). At a new company and the skies the limit. Thank you for all you do Jeremy! For starting this network, for providing a community for us EA’s. Your book is also a must!

Fantastic Resource!

I’m SO glad I found this podcast! Not only is it chock-full of fantastic insights and relatable stories from fascinating, experienced Admin+ professionals, it’s introduced me to some wonderful new contacts who I already enjoy interacting with and learning from. I genuinely feel motivated and inspired by Jeremy and his guests. Plus, he’s written a fantastic book that also has a great online community (definitely check it out and join on his website!). I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough, it’ll help you up your game and feel seen. It’s not easy to create content about ‘work stuff’ that’s actually enjoyable to listen to, but Jeremy has done it and I’m grateful.

Admin to EA ,
