I am launching a Patreon as well! I want to continue producing the content you care about, help you network with one another, and even have guests from the industry on the podcast to discuss their own experience. By supporting the podcast, you will help it expand and do more good in the world.
When you sign up, you will be able to join my discord server, get some swag, AND through the end of May Gold Patrons will get a 30 minute 1-on-1 video or phone call with me to discuss career coaching or any topic of their choice.
