Can’t get enough!

I am a sucker for career advice for musicians, self help resources, and personal stories- so “The Musician’s Guide” is a podcast I look forward to each week (I often find myself digging through old episodes when I can’t wait until Wednesday!). Karen and her guests are relatable and inspiring. I would recommend this podcast to all musicians and those looking for self-betterment.

This podcast is amazing!

This podcast is for everyone, not just musicians. There’s a ton of practice, applicable advice for musicians and their careers, but the life advice she shares is great for everyone to hear and think about. Thanks so much for spending the time to do this podcast Karen!
