Breath of Fresh Air!
"This podcast is such a breath of fresh air for EA professionals! I have over 12 years of experience, but I always learn something new from these podcasts. The speakers are transparent and address actual challenges EAs face on a daily basis. It’s one of my favorite professional podcasts. Also, even though it’s produced by an employment agency, it’s not sales-y at all! Keep up the good work, Maven!" - winerunninggirl2018

Life Changing for Executive Assistants
"I have shared with all the EAs I currently/have worked with. So many things on this podcast have made me say “yes” aloud. Beautifully moderated and all the guests have brought different insights and point of views. Really helps to bring the attention to a role that exists in many organizations that don’t get the credit they deserve."
