Nicole gator ,

Great real world lessons!

After listening to all the podcast I felt that I learned some amazing life lessons. Not only for my professional career but my personal life as well! Amy’s podcast about “Be Unapologetic when No Apology is Needed” resonated with me. In today’s era I catch myself prone to apologizing because it is basically asked for. But realizing later that nothing I said was wrong; it was truthful and factual. This lesson I will take with me in my future endeavors and really think about certain situations, if I feel I have said no wrongs. I look forward to hearing more podcast from Amy in the future! -Nicole Perez
