Great podcasts for creative women from all avenues of life
I’ve been listening to Philiy’s podcasts for a couple of years now and have found them really helpful.
Recently, during 2020 and the pandemic I have found that like many others, work has changed, less work has come in and I’ve been more isolated.
Philiy has been like a cheerleader, offering encouragement, sharing her life skills that were learnt at the rock face of hardship and difficulties, sharing her practical solutions without patronising.
I am grateful for these insights. Thank you Philiy
Good practical tips
Some really great tips to help you to overcome the every day stresses & blocks that can hold you back in your professional life.
Great podcast and community
I love Philly’s podcasts. They are so calming to listen to yet hugely inspiring. I found Philly’s podcast after reading her book The Business of Creativity.
