Success Stories: Teacher to Trainer with guest Stephanie Diggins
Our newest Success Stories episode featured Stephanie Diggins, a teacher turned instructional designer just last year. Stephanie actually reached out to me late last year asking if I could produce a virtual event on freelancing. Since becoming an instructional designer, she's decided to go the freelance route, and had lots of questions. It took me a couple of months, but we made it happen and the event took place this last February. And with that kind of curiousity and dedication, it's no wonder Stephanie is feeling great about her career change. She has some powerful observations about the shift, and it's worth listening to this episode to hear them. Enjoy!

e-Learning and Today's Disrupted Workforce with Danny Ortegon
In this episode, we had a chance to catch up with eLearning Consultant, Danny Ortegon, and talk about e-Learning and Today's Disrupted Workforce. Danny wrote an article about this specific topic and I caught it on Linkedin. And I wanted to bring it to an episode because although it's a topic we've discussed during the more intense days of the pandemic, we're moving into the endemic stage of things (hopefully) and there are impacts to our careers, our jobs, our organizations, that we probably don't think as much about anymore. We're all kind of burnt out ... but I think it's a good time to step back and reflect and reconsider all of it. Danny has some great points in this one; he's always an articulate guest with a tremendous amount of experience, so it was a pleasure talking with him. Linkedin 2022 Workplace Learning Report
