Full disclosure: I was interviewed as a guest on one of the early episodes. But, I'd love this podcast even if I wasn't a guest.
Joseph asks such thought-provoking questions to really get to the heart of the matter and dive into the stories behind people who have made those big career jumps and taken those (often terrifying) leaps of faith.
I know this podcast will serve as awesome inspiration and food for thought for all of those people who want to find more engaging and fulfilling lives and careers, but feel paralyzed by fear. I'm sure you'll walk away from each episode feeling ready to just go for it!
What a great contribution for those who are not happy with their job and decide to change their career goals... In today's world, there are more and more people who do not have enough courage to make big decisions about their life. This podcast provides stories of people who have made tough decisions and obviously there is a lot to learn from those stories...
The best career podcast I've listened to!
This is a high quality show. I've listened to hundreds of podcast and constantly unsubscribe to shows that don't provide a lot of value. This one will be on top of my list (as long as they keep coming :) )
I look forward to the new shows.
