Three more episodes until my summer hiatus.

May 18

The new episode of the podcast will start on Sept. 14. But since you know me, content is constant writing on a few career platforms, new videos on my YouTube channel, and two LinkedIn Live streams.

I will continue the newsletter on a once-a-month basis during the summer after May 18. Or, if there is something major, I will send out a special one.
