THE ROLE & THE BUSINESS For the past two years, I’ve been building my business solo, establishing myself as a digital marketing coach, retreat host and podcast host within the UK small business world – I’ve loved it! But with a full schedule and more ideas than I have time for, now feels like the […]

So you’re looking to start a podcast? I was in your shoes just over a year ago and I get how it feels – overwhelming, totally new and a little confusing? Yep, I have been there. When I was looking for help online, I was totally overwhelmed with everything involved in launching a podcast. From […]

The trajectory of the next 2 weeks has changed, a lot. I’m a little anxious to see what life without work (and now, a boyfriend) holds. What will I do? How will I feel? Who will I report back to and stay connected to? We’ll see, won’t we.  Day 1 Got a bit tipsy by […]

Let me tell you, there’s nothing I love more than listening to a podcast and it just so happens to fit into my everyday really, really well. Walking the dog? Podcast. Driving solo? Podcast.

THE DAILY DECISION Everyday when I wake up, I’m presented with two options; to lean in or to opt out. We’re all given that decision to […]

I’m talking about the pieces such as blogs, videos or podcasts, which we often pour large amounts of our time and energy into. Regardless of which platforms you’re on […]

If you’re a member of the Insta world, you’ve probably seen story templates going around… a graphic where you answer questions / fill in a form and then upload it to your story. Those which I’ve seen are Q&A based, and although they seem fun I struggled to understand how they would serve a wider […]

When I first started my business, I expected to be rolling out of bed with a spring in my step, working in a beautiful in-house office, sipping smoothies, hanging out in coffee shops and living my best life. The reality? Far from that. Instagram makes everything in life look pretty dreamy right? Whether it’s peoples’ […]
