    20. Burn Baby, Burn: Career Fatigue and the Hype of ‘Productivity’

    Our businesses can become our babies. They’re born from love and we nurture them with everything we have. But the truth is, your business can’t love you back. How do we stay passionate about what we do, without becoming overwhelmed, burnt out or unhappy?

    19. How To Start A Business: Part 2

    19. How To Start A Business: Part 2

    Starting a business usually begins with a brilliant idea, not a detailed business plan. Legal, accounting and finance can range from a headache to a panic attack for most first-time founders. In today’s episode, I’m sharing all of the technical know-how I’ve accumulated, together with some gems about mindset and resilience.

    17. How to Start a Business: Part 1

    According to Instagram, launching a business will:
    Happen overnightEnd in successInvolve a yacht Unfortunately, there’s no way to filter the truth. So in true Briony form, I’ll come out and say it: starting a business is hard. It’s tiring, it almost never goes according to plan and there will be tears. But here’s the other side of the truth: it is possible, just not in the timeline we expect it to be possible in. In today’s episode, I break down the first steps to launching a business alongside some hard lessons I learnt along the way. We’ll be unpacking where ideas come from, what happens after creating a concept, what to expect in the first few years and how to protect yourself from financial strain.

    16. Overcoming Imposter Syndrome as a Mum and a Business Owner

    16. Overcoming Imposter Syndrome as a Mum and a Business Owner

    We’re living in the age of opportunity. A time where success is visible, chances are taken and power is served on a buffet. It can feel exciting and hopeful but too often than not, it can feel anxiety-inducing. I started a beauty business well into my adulthood. I started something I had little experience in, in a market that was oversaturated and under the pulse. Others had concerns, I had a case of imposter-syndrome. Can I do this? Why should I start? Who am I to compete with them? In today’s episode, I’m getting candid on why we should stop comparing, how we can get perspective and what we need to enjoy life for ourselves, not others.

    15. Business and Pleasure: Navigating Every Relationship

    15. Business and Pleasure: Navigating Every Relationship

    Relationships. Yep, I’m going there. Professional, personal, romantic or complicated, the bonds we build with people throughout our lives say so much about who we are - sometimes for the worse but mostly for the better. In today’s episode, I’m unpacking the importance of loneliness, how to make valuable connections and the strategies I’ve used in both my personal and professional life to build trusting, respectful and meaningful relationships. Take it from me, it did not happen overnight (and it certainly didn’t happen in my twenties), but it did happen, and like all good things, it just took some time.

Very inspiring

Love how open Briony is to share her perspective and challenges about being a business owner and mother.

I don’t know what I can’t say about #BeautyBusinessandBabies.

Briony discusses the topics we’re often too afraid, too. I can’t wait to tune in every fortnight.

Pushes me to just do it

I love hearing from a woman who has just gone for it in life. This is a really inspirational and challenging podcast. It makes me want to keep going on my business journey. Easy listen for the drive to work.
