Underdog Leadership Podcast

with Jenny Mitchell

A podcast to help #2’s become #1’s in life and work. Jenny believes in the power of the underdog – the person who has overcome hardship, stereotyping, typecasting, or debilitating self-doubt to step into the best version of themselves. Underdogs lead with compassion and kindness. These leaders are hard-wired to make the world a better place for everyone.


Join Jenny in this podcast to grow your skills, step into who you were always meant to be, and expand into your best version of yourself. Because right now, the world needs more underdog leadership
