[Bonus Episode] Adam Yee In The Break Room: Honest Opinions on Careers, Learning, Podcasting, and Mindset

Hey everyone! This is a bonus episode! It’s also really long.

Kim from Peas on Moss and I recorded this a long time ago, but I figured I would post this since we’ve been talking about careers a lot on the podcast/blog.

So I talk a bit less modest in this episode, and maybe I’m a bit too honest this episode. Whether you agree with me on the points I make, I hope you find value in them. If you disagree, then challenge them and tell me what you think.

We talk a lot on all sorts of subjects such as job hopping, resume, the purpose of life, preparedness in a degree, podcasting life, all stuff of that nature.

No sponsors this episode. This one is a freebie.

(warning: we do say “you know” way too much in this interview. Enjoy!)
