Everyone walks a unique career journey. No matter how "linear" it may look in their LinkedIn profile, it is never that simple. Most people that have careers you aspire to have had to struggle. They had their own obstacles and made their own luck. Some careers you dream about may not even be what you assumed it would be. All assumptions should be tested and that is what I seek to do in this podcast. Follow along as I interview people on what they actually do in their careers and why they made the jumps in their careers, some quite unorthodox.
