The next episode of Your Biz, Your Rules is live and I’m THRILLED to introduce my very first interview.

This show is all about the importance of having biz besties – so I took the opportunity to talk to my real life business bestie about it… because, who better?

Listen here:

The key takeaways:

💛 If you work from home and you’re on your own so much, you do need people there that you can just talk to, and yammer on with and vent to sometimes.

💛 Sometimes you need to bring your boundaries down.

💛 Once the initial euphoria of “I work from home and no longer have to wear a bra” wears off, it’s easy to feel isolated. To feel a bit mad.

💛 An important thing to remember is that we decided to start running our own businesses for a reason, we didn’t want to be tied into the rat race. We didn’t want to be doing all of these things that might be negative. We want to do the stuff we want to do. We want to have fun. We want to have the freedom to be braless or move to Spain or whatever it is. And that has to be enjoyable, it can’t just be slog, slog, slog all the time.

💛 Stop lurking.
