{Encore} A NORTH BELFAST WORKERS' COOPERATIVE | Ryan, Leo & Richard from Loveworks | Season 2 Episode 8

This episode was originally released as part of Season 1. Due to some technical issues with our upload this week I thought it would be agood idea to give this "oldie but goodie" some additional love...it's in the name afterall! Things are a little different this week. I'm joined by a few guests instead of just one and the podcast is in two parts. In part one I'm joined by Ryan, Leo and Richard. They are from Loveworks Cooperative. Loveworks is a workers cooperative meaning that all the workers are part owners of the business - they all take equal pay, have equal voting rights and the business is based on trust and mutuality. In part one Ryan talks about how Loveworks gave him a second chance after a few stints in jail and falling into the wrong crowd - it's allowed him to gain new skills, increase confidence and give him a new perspective on life. For Leo he's been able to develop skills as a baker and move away from the hospitality industry to being a member and chairperson of the ...

INSIDE THE VAULT - THE PERSON BEHIND IRELAND'S ONLY DEDICATED LUXURY WATCH BOUTIQUE | Nico van der Horst | Season 2 Episode 7

EThis week on the show I'm joined by Nico van der Horst. Nico started Pride and Pinion - Ireland's only dedicated luxury watch boutique - with modest loan from the bank and a plan to buy and sell watches. Since then he's gone on to open the Vault, Pride and Pinion's first shop inside the Merchant Hotel in Belfast. In our show Nico talks about his views on entrepreneurship, why he loves luxury watches and timekeeping devices in general and his favourite watches. Aside from being able to geek out about watches for a nearly an hour we also chat about Nico's approach to entrepreneurship which stems from his Grandfather, and why he's not just in business for the money. In a way watches rescued Nico from a job that he barely tolerated and a long commute which he hated. He used watches to escape the hum-drum of a predictable life and built the life he wanted. An inspiring story.
