Why you need more than Instagram

You know how much I love Instagram - it's the perfect playground for creatives online. Many of us see it as the 'make or break' platform for creatives and business owners - but is Instagram alone enough to make your business thrive?

"You Look Okay To Me", with Jameisha Prescod

Jameisha Prescod is a filmmaker and journalist, who also happens to live with a chronic illness. She brought all these things together in her digital space for documenting and sharing life with chronic illness, You Look Okay To Me, as a place for people to connect, share stories, get help and generally just feel less alone. I called her up on her lunch break at the BBC to find out how she got started, what sickness and seeking a diagnosis has taught her, and how she balances her creative work with the demands of an often unpredictable and uncomfortable illness to contend with.

Why you're not taking action on your goals - and how to fix it

Does any of this sound familiar? You're stuck in passive action - reading about things instead of actually doing them. You procrastinate on the steps to take you towards your big dreams and goals, even though you know they're the path to happiness and fulfilment? Maybe you constantly make promises to yourself that you break, and your self-esteem and self-belief​ is suffering as a result? This week's episode is for everyone nodding along right now.

When your successful business isn't what you want, with Jane Lindsey

My guest this week, Jane Lindsey, had what so many of us dream of a successful handmade business, a six-figure turnover, a loyal team, and her embroidery in homes around the world. But it didn't feel right. So, Jane did what not many of us would be brave enough to do - she pulled back, completely pivoted her business, and began to embrace her own internal measures of success instead. She talks to me about how she recognised what she wanted, why she had to make a difference, and how she's building a business that is entirely "anti-Amazon​ prime".

Staying happy and sane online, with Fiona Thomas

In this week's conversation, we talk about the importance of boundaries, self-worth, productivity, Instagram, mental illness and community, and how we can weave them all together to stay happy and healthy online.

Dignity in the doing, with Annabelle Hickson

Annabelle Hickson describes herself as an "accidental florist", which gives her far too little credit for the magic she's made happen in both her career and her life. Educator, author, photographer and podcaster, she lives on a pecan farm in rural Australia and shares to the world via social media. In this week's conversation, she talks us through how she weaves beauty out of the things that she finds on the roadside - both literally, and perhaps a little bit metaphorically too.

Ten things to do when it feels like you're failing

This week I'm talking about something that must be familiar to every creative and entrepreneur. It happens when your inbox is quiet; when somebody else lands that big deal or opportunity you always wanted; when you can't stop looking at everyone else's follower counts. Fear of failure hits us all sometimes, and it's easy to spiral in to panic. In this episode I share 10 practical and intentional things you can do to understand your fear, and use it to build forward momentum.

Dreaming about what you're really good at, with Chupi Sweetman

By the age of 21, Chupi Sweetman had been a cookbook writer and landed her dream job as a fashion designer for Topshop. But she still had bigger dreams. She's now best known for her eponymous and massively successful jewellery company, and - as you'll hear in this conversation - is every bit as sparkling and enchanting as the things she creates.
