A true guru

This show is a must listen for anyone navigating the corporate world. I was so inspired by an episode that I reached out to setup a call to discuss a situation I was struggling with in the office. Felicia exceeded any expectations I may have had for a career coach. In such a short time she’d seemed to read my mind, the minds of those around me and was able to diagnose the problem. THANK YOU for being a voice of reason and for your professional insight with a side of hearty laughter.
