    From Burnout to Broadcast

    Welcome to Excellence Expected.



    Episode 1 is my opportunity to thank you for picking up the show and beginning this journey with me.



    During the episode I talk about how I bounced back from a business catastrophe to become founder of a rapidly growing design & digital agency, whilst also discussing how that rapid growth and the challenges it brought, caused me to burn out only two years ago.



    I take this opportunity to talk about what you can expect from each episode of Excellence Expected and the value that you, as a business owner or entrepreneur, can draw from the podcast.



    I also introduce my free eBook "The Essential 14 Day Guide to Cutting Your Working Hours and Increasing Your Impact", which is my blueprint and work-through template that will show you how to create more time every single day, become instantly more effective in your business and create the time to enjoy the things that matter to you.



    Excellence Expected is a podcast for business owners, by business owners, with each and every episode adding value to your busy business life.



    Let's learn, share and grow together; don't forget: the more you expect from yourself, the more you will excel.
