I’m really excited to share this week’s episode of Your Biz, Your Rules partly because there are some great nuggets for anyone looking to grow their virtual team (as I was when we recorded this show) and also because Mary is someone I’ve had the good fortune to connect with in real life…

I hope you guys all enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording (and I hope you all get as much out of the chat too).

One of my very, very favourite things about running my own business is that my future is in my hands.

That means that what I do, what I learn and what I become is all down to me.

If I had £1 for every person who told me they find content creation stressful or overwhelming, I’d probably be living in an obnoxious turquoise palace by the sea.

If I had £1 for every time I’ve said “It doesn’t bloody have to be!” I’d have the horse and carriage to go with.

Here’s the thing – you can create consistent content that’s actually worth consuming, without sacrificing your time, your sanity,
