S2 Ep 3 - You Decide - Sod the ‘Shoulds’.

Business Consultant and mentor Louisa van Vessem has a reality based perspective on running your own business. She describes herself as ‘brutally honest’ and her own story has meant dealing with reality big time. We talk about crushing perceptions and organising your world to suit your rhythms - not the ‘shoulds’. We talk pace and balance and taboo.

S2 Ep 2 Rebecca Perl - Yes you can write - just start. Motivating you to think about what and how you write

Rebecca knows what works when it comes to the written word - and she talks good common sense - such as ‘if you can think, you can write’.  Blogs, website copy, articles - keep it simple - think about who you are writing for - and importantly enjoy the process. Insight, tips and resources in this relaxed and rich chat.
