    Some more random musings from me, an update on my book, and my views on business failures coming out of the recession. Plus most importantly, discussing why we buy the stuff we do.

    FREEDOM! And some tips to smash your next Video Call

    FREEDOM! And some tips to smash your next Video Call

    So, we've finally been able to recharge, in the sun, eating outside, and doing some non essential shopping... but video calls are something that have been the bane of our lives and might not go away. I talk about the way we can take advantage of our new found freedoms in England, and how we can make video calls work for us all whilst the world is still a little crazy.

Great Direction!

Update to previous review - the guests just keep getting better and better. Love the insights from Alex Hall on marketing and brand.

Great to finally get Carl and guest's knowledge concentrated down into easily accessible weekly podcasts. I'm a big fan of his personal business story from hair dresser to entrepreneur to business expert and now I get to hear his top business tips and advice.

Carl gets his guests to share some great stories and insights into what makes businesses tick and prosper. I love his relaxed style and the quick fire questions at the end are great fun.
