Season 2 Episode 37: Why Working With People Who ‘Figure It Out’ Is a Key To Success

I know from experience that when you work as an Executive Assistant, you can be asked to help your Executive with almost everything. Planning a funeral, catching and relocating a groundhog, or revising an itinerary when a lunch and a flight conflict.
