Episode 6 - Creating a Renegade - Sally Willbanks
This week I have the founder of a clothing brand (ND Renegade) Sally Willbanks with me on the podcast.
ND Renegade is a husband-and-wife team whose mission it is to engage people in a discussion about neurodiversity.
Sally has taken on this battle because she has two neurodivergent children, a daughter who is autistic, ADHD and dyspraxic, and a son who is autistic, ADHD and has anxiety disorder.
Both are gifted, and both are incredible.
All too often when people think of autism, ADHD, and other neurological differences, they only see the difficulties that go along with these conditions,
In the words of Temple Grandin, neurodivergent people are "different, not less", and Sally is aiming to make this known.

Whether your needing a place to call home or you have a place you call home – sharing is one way of reducing the financial burdens of everyday expenses, having the opportunity to live in a more ideal home, create a friendship with another single parent and unofficial “siblings” for your children.
This week I'm interviewing Share Abode's founder and single mum herself, Wilhelmina Ford.
She’s knows all about the challenges of being a single parent and has done the hard yards, posting regularly on her Facebook group about the trials and tribulations she experiences
Way back in 2019 she created the Share Abode concept - its a free online platform for single parents to connect with one another for the purpose of home sharing.
The site offers a solution to the challenges that every single parent family faces when looking to move on that being high-cost housing, increased living expenses, practical everyday support and high levels of social isolation.
