Keep up the hustle Jake!
Spent my first 21 years in Salem/Keizer, this podcast not only brings me back to my roots but I love hearing how great Marion County is growing! Keep making these podcasts!!!
Love listening to this podcast! First - the recent Salem spotlights are great. Even though I don’t currently live there, I love learning more about the people and companies that are contributing to the changing face of Salem.
I am not in a traditional leadership role with work, but the messages here still apply to me. I glean so much good info about how to better approach my own work and how I interact with others from the info shared by the hosts and guests.
So glad to have the New Leader Workshop on my podcast rotation!
The perfect podcast for SALEM, Oregon!!
I love having a podcast like this about my city.
SALEM is Awesome!
