Great advice for anyone at any stage in their career!

It is a great listen everytime with constructive advice on managing your career whether you work in retail, management, are just starting out, or are a middle aged Mom in the middle of her career like me. An added bonus is the parenting advice around your children's education especially. I heard about the podcast when TJ Coleman was on the Minimalists podcast and just loved him!
