Can We Have It All? With Carly Rowena

Hopefully by now you’ll know that I have my own podcast (woohoo!) and I’m hoping that you may have even listened to it? That would make me so happy! It’s all about navigating that tricky part of your life, when you’re mid-way through your career, have started a family and just might want to do something different before it feels like it’s too late?! Yup, your thirties and forties. Can you relate?

In the podcast, I tackle various topics to do with small business, entrepreneurship, juggling families and work and everything in between. Every other episode, I welcome a guest onto my podcast who I will have a good ol’ natter with about the realities of their success, job and juggle. The aim is to be approachable, relatable and inspiring for other women and mums out there who are looking to leave the 9 to 5 for whatever reason.

Alongside the podcasts featuring amazing guests, I will create a blog-post with some further Q&A to really get you going! 😉

Here’s my first guest, Carly Rowena…let’s get to know her a little better shall we?…Continue reading
