Secrets from the Old Girls Network

Every month, we open our Facebook group, “Career Kickstarters [Give Yourself a Raise] with Sami Gardner” to amplify the voices of other women leaders.

Our monthly guest expert records a 10-minute long talk that will be posted into the group. Keep in mind our topic – “Secrets from the Old Girls Network!” We want TEDTalk meets girl talk.


Pitch Yourself to the Podcast

The podcast via Zoom and released on iTunes, GooglePlay, and iHeartRadio.

I am very selective over my guests, who fall into two camps: people with cool careers & guest experts.
