So excited for Unemployable. After listening to the trailer I can’t wait to learn from Joshua and other Unemployables.

First episode was great!!

Absolutely loved the first ep with Dana Look-Arimoto! This topic really forced me to examine how I’m spending my time. I’m now reading her book and it’s so good. Thank you John & Opolis team!
