When Plans Go Awry & How To Deal With It

In this solo episodeI talk about how plans can go slightly off course or completely in the ‘wrong’ direction… but is this such a bad thing? I look back on how my year had gone so far and how the plans I made at the start of 2018 haven’t actually materialised in the way I’d hoped, but they’ve developed in so many other ways that I’d not even imagined.

Incorporating Playfulness into Instagram with Rabya Lomas

Rabya Lomas of She Flourished, has take back control of her Instagram account and turned it into a place where she feels comfortable and confident posting on a less regular basis but bringing in an element of playfulness that seems to have all but disappeared from the platform. The algorithm changes, photography expectations and time dedicated to the site are factors that don’t deter Rabya from posting the imagery she wants when she wants to, and by moving away from the ‘should’s’ and ‘musts’ of having an Instagram profile, she has created a great community and built up her following in an organic way.

Taking Your Side Hustle to Full Time with Stacey MacDonald

In today’s episode I chat to Stacey MacDonald, the person behind Darwin & Gray, a Paper & Textile Designer who hand makes all of her own banners and signs. Darwin & Gray has developed considerably over the years and at the time of chatting to Stacey in September, she had just taken the leap to quit her full time job as a Retail Manager and taken Darwin and Gray full time just before the run up to the Christmas period. Stacey was extremely open about all aspects of her business and how Darwin & Gray allowed her to indulge in her creative side whilst working both full time and part time jobs (equating to 50 hours per week!) to keep her financially afloat. She discussed how anxiety has crept into her work mindset and how she manages these times, plus her excitement at how Darwin & Gray will develop over the next 12 months now that she can devote more time to creating products and working alongside other creative businesses.

Money Matters with Julia Day

In today’s episode I have a good chat with Julia Day, Financial Coach of Easy As VAT, about all things money matters. Money is one of those things that we generally have a fear of speaking openly about, but it is such a crucial part of life in that we need it, want more of it and (if we’re lucky) squirrel away for those less than certain days. We seem to want more of it in our lives but are so very reluctant to want to discuss the importance of having it in our lives, as though it is a taboo subject. There’s also a general societal displeasure of even mentioning money unless this is part of your job/ career but when things start to go wrong in this area, it can really impact on all aspects of your life. So why don’t we want to talk about more openly? Julia doesn’t have such issues with money matters, stemming from her experiences as an Accountant and wanting to blast away the fears that her coaching clients may have about wanting/ needing and pursuing it in their ventures and i...

The Truth About Organising & Managing Events with Deb Kendall

In today’s episode I have a really open chat with Deb Kendall, Event & Workshop Organiser, Lifestyle Blogger and the person behind the increasingly popular Fabulous Places. Deb was extremely open about how her business has grown over the past 10 years and how it has developed to include styling workshops, creative business events and the increasingly popular Spring, Summer and Christmas Markets within Derby City as well as the design and production of the Derbyshire Handpicked Guide. In this episode we discuss How Fabulous Places started over a Sunday discussion with her husband; The direction that her business took when she was made redundant and her feelings about losing her stable income; The things that she looks for when considering potential stall holders for her own events; The rationale behind whether or not she takes on board new opportunities for Fabulous Places; Her constant amazement and appreciation on how the general public and stall holders react to her events; The a...

Solo Episode: Managing Your Online Presence as an Introverted PersonIn this solo episode I offer my own views on how to navigate the thin line between sharing personal information, or any information for that matter, about yourself with the desi

In this solo episode I offer my own views on how to navigate the thin line between sharing personal information, or any information for that matter, about yourself with the desire to desist from over-sharing. The online world is a busy place, all of people’s opinions and points of view that may not necessarily align with our own. And when you’re an introverted person, it can be doubly hard to want to put your head above the parapet, possible due to the fear that you may offend someone or start a bit of a back lash. I get it, I’m a naturally introverted character too but I am terribly aware that as someone with an online presence, and the fact that people buy and relate to people, navigating this can really feel like you’re treading on eggshells a lot of the time. But there are ways that you can happily share parts of your life and still keep the introverted side of you protected. I’m always interested in hearing how other’s manage this in their own lives and so if anyone has a...
