    Welcome to episode 44 and we’re going to be covering mindset advice today and how to show yourself kindness and compassion even when you’re busy working away. Be this at Christmas, in the lead up to a launch or during the school holidays.

Loving this creative podcast

I’ve just recently come across this creative podcast and am currently binge listening to all the episodes. Joanne has a lovely clear, calm way of explaining what she has to say and I love the mini meditation podcasts she puts in between the more informative ones. Having recently started a new business and currently very busy getting ready for the Festive selling season, I am really enjoying listening while I sit at my sewing machine in my home studio. Looking forward to listening to many more in the future
