I Strongly Recommend Joseph Liu's Career Relaunch
I just had the pleasure of listening to Joseph's podcast with Heather Monahan, the author of "Confidence Creator."
As a result, I've already bought Heather's book.
I really appreciated hearing Heather's story and can't wait to read her book.
I particularly enjoyed hearing Joseph share his story of relocating from San Francisco to London, from walking on an expressway for an interview to be a sausage brand manager to Joseph's eventual success as the brand manager for a chocolate product.
You can't beat the personal stories I heard from both Heather and Joseph.
Motivating and Inspiring
I began listening to this podcast a few months back as I started going to the gym again to heal my body after a major injury which also conincided with my own required career launch. Listening to the stories each week is inspiring and motivating and I've been highly recommending it to all of my fellow enreprenuers who are on the fence about taking that next step into their dream jobs.
Thought-Leader! Inspirational, Practical, Diverse
Career Relaunch is quality! Every aspect is first-rate. Joseph Liu is a strategic thought leader who asks powerful questions, always with the practical goal of learning and moving forward towards positive change. I enjoy the curated podcasts spotlighting diverse guests, each on their unique career journey, yet relatable. The Career Relaunch is an amazing community.
Joseph is a sincere, curious, empathetic, honest career coach.
Joseph Liu is the real deal.
