Customer Reviews

compelling for a cross-country road trip

I just 'jumped' back across the country to set up my own consulting business, and I listened to every episode of this podcast on the drive, starting with most recent and working back. It was obviously compelling enough to listen to for hours and hours and hours. A few comments, though.
1. I really hope Mike's voice gets better soon!
2. The best jump stories were mostly the ones that are rated highest here- Gretchen Rubin and Cathy Heller, particularly (not Sheryl Sandberg, I think hers is top-rated because she's a big name)
3. I got really tired of hearing Mike's story about how he played squash by the end- I wish the events where he talked about himself AGAIN weren't put on the podcast- they're great for new followers, but enough about squash and Mike already!
4. Mike is definitely more into agreeing with his subjects than pressing them or asking them tough questions- he's not a journalist. His favorite interview word may be "Wow."
5. My biggest gripe is actually with the sound quality. It's often pretty uneven and bad- nowhere near the quality of a lot of the other podcasts I listen to. I understand he does a lot of recording over the phone, but there must be a way to fix this??
6. He makes it sound like there's some sort of jump club community on his website, and I went there expecting forums and discussion, but it's just a slick website and you can sign up for his mailing list. It didn't seem like real community.
7. I wouldn't mind if episodes came out every other week if they were better-produced and better-interviewed.
8. It would be nice to mix the jump stories more with practical advice, like the 'should I go back to school?' episode. Like, a "HOW to jump" episode.

Inspiring and Thought Provoking

Awesome podcast - just listened to the premiere episode with Sheryl Sandberg. Very open conversation about her transition from government to tech and the thought process that she went through. Challenges you to think about if/when it is time to let go of the hold to start something new

If you’re considering making a jump I encourage you to listen to the pod for some inspiration and confidence.

“Long term dream and short term plan. Enjoy the process.”

Great podcast, and referral to other great podcasts

I’ve been listening for a month on the way to work, and have heard some inspiring stories and great advice. Also, this podcast led me to several other resources that are helpful as well (Gretchen Rubin, Julie Morgenstern, Julie Finn) and hopefully one day I will get my jump together. Until then, I am glad to hear positive stories from the world!
