Being Self Employed While Dealing With Personal Adversity – in conversation with Berenice Smith

“If someone said to me, what are you going to be doing in 12 months, well I don’t know. But then, ten years ago, I thought I’d have one child, maybe two. I think the idea of having a five year plan is good, but actually it can come with huge disapointments too, because life has a funny way of not quite going to your five year plan”

I’m delighted to welcome Berenice Smith is this week’s guest on the Happy Healthy Entrepreneur Podcast. 

Ideas are great, but action is what moves you forward – in conversation with Nicola Semple

“You have to back yourself, and trust” – in conversation with Darren Lawrence

“Back yourself. Hold your nerve. If things aren’t happening, but you are sure of the direction you want to be in, hold your nerve. There is so much work out there, so just focus on the work that is going to give you the most enjoyment. And don’t wait for things to happen!” (Darren Lawrence)
