Episode Notes

Remember the advert where the guy turns to his wife and announces "I'm going it alone. Tarquin's with me. Hugo's with me"? (I've made up my own names since I don't recall exactly who was with him but I know it was the 80s and they were very Thatcherite names).

Well, running your own business has never been as popular as now. The internet, the sheer number of people who are doing it (making it feel less risky) and our growing desire to do something that has meaning for us, is driving the entrepreneur revolution. But what's it actually like to work for yourself? These ladies know!

The presenters of Being Boss both run their own creative businesses, they create resources and networks for other people who either want to or are already running their own show and their book "Being Boss" has been doing super well as well!

In this interview with Emily and Kathleen we talk big hair, tarot and, of course, what it's actually like to run your own business. I hope you love it and are inspired by these two fab ladies. You can find out more about them here and order their book here.
