    Episode 177: Cheap Fixes for Expensive Career Problems

    Episode 177: Cheap Fixes for Expensive Career Problems

    I was just talking with someone who chose a cheap fix to an expensive career problem.


    He hired a coach who charges $200/hour.


    He’s already wasted $3000 and is still struggling on the job market!


    Paying for “inexpensive” coaches to solve your expensive career problems is the same thing as putting duct tape on a leaking roof.


    It’s a short-term, cheap tactic that makes it more costly in the long run.


    How do you avoid this? Watch this episode now!!!

Useless podcast

I read the description and I was excited. Subscribed to the show, and it was very disappointing.
The delivery is poor and there is no structure to the content. It’s mostly rambling.
There are better podcasts out there.
