Can We Have It All? My Podcast

Dun dun duuunnnnn…I’ve talked about it, I’ve hinted at it and now it’s finally here…my podcast has launched!

Can we have it all?

Real conversations on navigating your thirties and forties, leaving the 9 to 5 and being a working mum. Inspiring you to take that leap to do what you truly want to.

Thanks to Katie aka Proper Social for filming & producing this video trailer.

I’ve felt in limbo for a couple of a months, questioning absolutely everything, particularly the juggle of motherhood and a start-up business.

I wonder if it’s the inevitable end-of-year slump, you know, when you dwell on the things you’ve not achieved or managed to do that year, instead of all the things you have actually achieved! I definitely fell victim to that last month – all I could focus on was the stuff I hadn’t done. In fact, it was only when I sat in the car on New Year’s Eve, on the drive back from London and started to high-light my year on Insta-stories that I realised just how much I had achieved…Continue reading
