Fantastic Podcast But...

I love this podcast so much. Some of my favorite episodes include “How Women of Color Can Own Their Success” and the episode with Moj Mahdara. That said, I do wish more women from humble backgrounds were interviewed. Most had parents who were already successful or invested in their businesses. Sure, they still had their struggles and still worked very hard to be successful but people consider inviting women with little to no support system from the very beginning. Inspiring women like Michelle Mone who grew up very poor and still attained massive success.

Thank You, WSJ!

This podcast has changed my life. When I came back from maternity leave last year, I felt like I was starting all over. I needed tips on how to be a working mom who was SEEN and successful at work and home, and I got them from this podcast. In the past year, my confidence has skyrocketed, I’ve gained motivation and I negotiated for a big raise and promotion, which I got!! It’s been a banner year and I owe so much of it to the inspiring stories and tips I’ve learned here. Thank you thank you!! And keep ‘em coming.
