Podcast: Zoe Whitman, But the Books

….”I got chatting to the guy behind the counter of a coffee shop, he told me he wanted to be a violin teacher, but he was afraid to get started with his business, because he didn’t want to do a tax return. It made me feel really sad that something as simple as that – well, as simple as that to me, was enough for him not to get started. It just got me thinking, there’s an idea here.”

Freelance Mum Meets Dr Chris

Dr Chris and Dr X and are firm favourites in our household, so when I had the chance to speak to Dr Chris when he visited Windmill Hill earlier this year, I jumped at it! He was a man on a mission, to clearly explain, some healthy alternatives, before opting for medicine ­ especially when it comes to our children.

“For most people, most of the sources of ill health in our lives are better dealt with through other means and means that will leave you feeling well, joyful, empowered, happy ­and medicine can¹t do that in a way that a good diet, decent exercise, some good friends ­ all those things, will make you feel much better”

Podcast: Business Choir

The landscape of networking is changing – in a fun and focused way! This year a Business Choir launched attracting business owners across the South West to meet, sing and do business once a week. I caught up with the brains behind the choir, vocal coach, Amy Box. She explained the benefits of singing and networking and exactly how it works.

“For the business owner, what happens when we sing, is we take in extra oxygen, that’s fuelling your brain, so it makes you more productive, it makes you more focused, it makes you more awake – we all need that sometimes as entrepreneurs. It gives you more confidence, which is really important as a business owner.”
