In this episode of The Leader Assistant Podcast, AJ talks about how she became an assistant, tips for new assistants, and advice on event planning and coordination. AJ is also a member of the Leader Assistant Premium Membership Community. I trust you’ll enjoy our conversation!
Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress, working hard for something we love is called passion.
