I’ve never met Nick before (he’s in Australia, I’m in Missouri), but he took a risk and “raised his hand” to be a guest on the podcast.

Because we are both EAs, it felt like we’d known each other for a while even though this interview was our first time speaking. Nick had great things to share from his experience so I’m thankful he reached out to share a bit of his story!

What’s the lesson in all this?

Assistants, YOU HAVE A STORY TO TELL, so get out there and tell it!

Speaking of… if YOU would like to be a guest on the podcast, please email me at and we’ll see if we can make it happen!
