Awesome Information for Leaders and EAs

Great content on leadership and the Executive Assistant career. I’ve been an EA and Office Manager for 16 years and have found knowledge from every episode I’ve listened to so far.

I also added The Leader Assistant book by Jeremy Burrows to my audible library.

Thanks for the content!
