On this episode of the Millennial Playbook Podcast we are joined by Susan Shane. Susan is a freelance writer and author of The Ultimate Guide to Seasonal Jobs. She spent the last decade as a digital nomad travelling and working seasonal jobs all over the world before she turned to freelance writing full time. Susan gets real with us about the negative stereotypes she faced for not getting a “real job” and how it all really boils down to having the money to pay your bills and coming to terms with the stereotypes.
She provides training, consulting, and speaking services to organizations all over the world. She has an MEd in Social and Comparative Analysis in Education from the University of Pittsburgh and is a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach. Her work helps to bridge communication gaps across generations, job functions, and geographies, and she has worked with organizations ranging from non-profits to multi-billion-dollar enterprises. She has delivered a TEDx talk on authentic workplace communication, and has been featured in media outlets including Forbes, ABC, FOX, and CBS. Her book, Humanize Your Workplace (Career Press), is set to release next year.
