Take a Break with This Wonderful Podcast!
Break Form is thoughtful, candid, and illuminating. Annette and Sarah regularly confront and dissect uncomfortable, universal topics, including career, family, parenthood, and success. What does it mean to be sucessful? What does happiness really, actually look like? These are difficult conversations to have, and I'm so glad they're having them.
Annette and Sarah speak candidly and eloquently about change, career, process and creativity. I love the show as a place to go when I'm feeling stuck or need a shift in perspective. Highly recommended!
Solid, insightful podcast
This podcast covers topics such as career, finding ones life purpose, making the most of ones day, productivity, and more. The style of conversation is informal and carries a lighthearted tone that, though it describes some of the negatives of law, balances it out with providing hope for the future and choosing a career path that is more congruent with ones interests, values, and talents. Looking forward to the upcoming episodes.
