You need that. I think you need it to help you build and maintain confidence.”  — Kanika Tolver

DNA Of A Professional

I really appreciate you bringing this topic to light and choosing to share your personal challenges. The hardest thing for me has been being really good at something (career) you don’t love and trying to make it work. And being too afraid to leave or fully own that I want to leave because I think it’s the best thing I’ve achieved so far.. Your transparency helped me be more honest with myself! Thank you! This podcast was right on time.

DNA Of A Professional

The host gives valuable information and tips to implement them in your every day life. This focuses on career development but it helps with personal development in all areas of your life. I love listening to the episodes and reading her emails.

DNA Of A Professional

The best aspect of this podcast is the audience that it reaches. I’m a college student about to step into the next chapter of my life and I resonate with so many of the episodes. Tareka is so smart and so passionate about her message to her audience and she knows how to relate. I listen to every single one of her episodes and am fascinated about how she connects the dots between an individual and different parts of their life and career🤍
