Ep #1: Characteristics of a Leader Assistant

I'm so excited to launch the Leader Assistant Podcast! To be honest, publishing episode one is very intimidating. It's one thing to write a blog post. It's another to record your voice and share it – and all of it's imperfections – with the world. I know I'll get better over time, but it's really hard to listen to your own voice. If you [...]

What Pushing Carts at Walmart Taught Me About Company Culture
