I love a good podcast, don’t you? There’s so much out there to learn and podcasts make everything so easy for us don’t they? You have the convenience of listening when it suits you and you can learn something while you’re out for a run, cooking dinner, or simply walking into town.
I have become a little obsessed with them and am always looking for recommendations - let me know in the comments which podcast is your favourite at the moment?
I love the ones that make me laugh and I’ve heard a few that have made me cry too! If you look back through my blogs you’ll see the one I referred to in July Heart-wrenching challenges of a modern mum Why Mum’s Don’t Jump podcast.
Jules White’s Human Conversation podcast.
There is an intimacy with a podcast that you have the listeners attention for about 30 minutes - that’s often longer than we pay attention to a TV programme for! - so I’ve found it to be a really valuable way for me to reach my audience and spread the campaigning message.
Recently I was lucky enough to be invited onto Jules White’s Human Conversation podcast. Jules has had some incredible guests on her show so I was really proud to be included in her line-up and we had a great conversation.
Jules likes to look at the journey you take and what brings you to where you are today and I have to admit it’s a varied journey. After graduating from University in programming, I only worked in that field for 7 months before I changed direction altogether and bought and ran a fish & chip shop! No, it wasn’t on my career path initially but it gave me some great customer service experience and being my own boss was something I really wanted to be. I suggest you have a listen to the podcast to hear what happened next….
Passionate female entrepreneurs
The key for me was to find something I was passionate about and it all happened by chance. An article I read was telling me that women, once they hit the menopause, are likely to struggle with their pelvic floors regardless of how good they had always been. Well I was quite determined that wasn’t going to happen to me and so started my journey to find a weighted product that would help me.
