Business Jazz Podcast is for people who like their job and for people who don’t like their job. This is an equal opportunity podcast.

Are you absolutely sure this is the right job for you?” = a great question for a consultant to use.

Are you absolutely sure you’re on the right planet?” (as Elan Musk says)
