    The future of Starting The Conversation

    The future of Starting The Conversation

    After almost 3 years of this podcast and 18 months of conversation starters, it feels right to take a step back and allow the new format to come to life. I'll be back in the next couple of months but until then, be sure to check out my new podcast - Wish We Knew...
    Accidental ‘entrepreneurs’ Alice Benham and Vix Meldrew sit down to share what they wish they knew about founding and scaling their online businesses. From the start of fledgling ideas up to where they are in their journow, they’re here to show you that the path to ‘success’ isn’t linear or overnlht but steady, messy and with lots of lessons along the way. This is what they’ve learned that they wish they knew all along.

    135 | Why success doesn't always equal happiness

    135 | Why success doesn't always equal happiness

    In my first few years of business I tied together success and happiness, assuming that achieving goals within my business would bring my own personal happiness with it. But over time, after achieving those goals and realised how individual those two concepts were, I've begun to realise how separate they really are.
    In this episode Julia brings some fascinating insight on the tie between success and happiness from why achieving goals doesn't necessarily mean peaks of happiness, how we can begin to separate the two and the difference between happiness and contentment. 
    I left this recording with SO much to think about and I hope it does the same for you!

Amber Badger ,

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE x 100000 (I love it a lot, okay?)

Starting the Conversation with Alice Benham offers a totally fresh, accessible and relatable approach to the business conversations many of us shy away from.

Alice is an epic host, connecting with each and every guest in a way that always moves the conversation in very inspiring ways. As someone who is only 7 months into her business, this podcast has provided me with no end of ideas and even just the reassuring "you're doing alright!" pat on the back I sometimes crave.

I always look forward to new episodes and am excited to see where the podcast goes in 2020!
