Engaging and inspiring podcast!
I recently discovered this podcast and have been on a mini-binge ever since. The interviews are inspiring, in-depth, and full of great ideas and information. I love the broad range of interesting and unique people interviewed and find that there are always things to learn, no matter what field the interviewee works in. Polina and Amber are insightful and engaging interviewers who do a great job drawing out the stories of people’s career journeys. I’m glad I found them.
Awesome show, highly recommend!
Brianne and her guests provide some incredibly actionable and compelling content on how women can live a life with intention and meaning.
Highly recommend listening and subscribing to I Want Her Job if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to become the woman you know you’re capable of becoming (and live your best life as a result)!
Career Stories from Successful Women
Excellent in depth interviews with successful women from many fields who share professional and personal stories. Host Polina Selyutin asks smart questions as she lets her guests speak at their own pace. The conversations offer both practical and inspiring ideas. Two takeways from the recent epsiode with Barre3 co-founder Sadie Lincoln, for example: She takes challenges, not ideas, to her staff, and considers how her 95-year-old self might react to that day’s concerns.
Love the diversity of guests. The interview are great and provide some deep insights into what works and what doesn’t.
