Listening is free

It’s rare I do this but I have to make sure others know about this podcast. If you’re at the point in life where you’re burned out by your corporate job and are questioning what else is out there or starting your own business, give this podcast a listen. It’s not cheesy or censored. Great questions are being asked followed by inspiring answers.

I started with a random episode and was hooked. I then decided to start from the very beginning and make my way back to 2021. Listening to these stories let’s me know WE ALL struggle and WE ALL want what’s best for us. Learning to deal and handle situations were tasked with can be difficult. Since I’ve started listening, ideas and “ah ha” moments have been popping up like crazy. If you want something raw and engaging, prioritized some time and listen. What’s the worst that can happen?
