  • Episode 40: Why celebrating your wins and finding your community matters (especially as an entrepreneur)

    14 FEB. 2024 · Mini episode: Let's talk about why we need to celebrate Galentine's Day and celebrate YOU! I'm flying solo this Valentine's Day episode to talk about two different kinds of love: self love (I'm talking pride and self care here, not the racy stuff!) and friendship- the real, there for you through the toughest stuff kind of pals. This episode is all about the importance of: finding your people (ie. a community of likeminded female entrepreneurs), celebrating YOU and your progress, and making time for self care: why it should be a priority- and free of guilt, I might add. I‘m sharing lots of honest experience on:the loneliness of starting a business in a new country, the struggles of new motherhood and self employment, how I stepped out of my comfort zone to find my people (and then some) and why I’m working on allowing more time for me and celebrating my wins- big, small and any steps forward. There's a wee bit about the community I co created for female entrepreneurs in Glasgow and across Scotland as well (check out the link sofr Small Biz Big Chat below). Thanks for listening, and please share this episode with anyone you know who is feeling lonely in this world of motherhood and entrepreneurship. Let's help this community grow!

  • EP 37: Small Fish Big Pod becomes The Self Employed Mum

    9 ENE. 2024 · Small Fish Big Pod is now The Self Employed Mum Podcast! The podcast is shifting focus- from a female entrepreneurship podcast to a podcast specifically for entrepreneurs who are also mums. I thought about this a lot, as I don’t want to leave anyone out- I really don’t want to separate women into different categories as we are all figuring this out together. But running a business while raising small humans is an entirely different ballgame and for those of us who are in the thick of it right now- this is the kind of content we need. The kind of discourse we are passionate about creating and sharing. The kind of conversations we most need to participate in. So here we are! From now onwards the podcast will share stories, tips and perspective from female entrepreneurs who are also mums- and the topics we cover will be related specifically to the challenges of running a business while raising children. Listen in more detail above (it's a very short solo episode!)- regular episodes resume next week!

    1 JUN. 2023 · Uncomfortable with the 'money' aspect of running a small business? You're in good company.
