Inspiring!

I was put in touch with Lisa by a friend and former colleague. I “escaped” from my corporate job some nine months ago and have set up my own business as an artist. I have not looked back but occasionally have “wobbles”, wondering whether it was the right thing to do. Concerns that everyone has when setting up a new business are addressed in the podcasts, delivered in Lisa’s calm and reassuring way. I have been using Lisas podcasts as “therapy” 😀. It’s been a great help. Thanks so much Lisa! 🙏❤️

Fabulous Practical Advice!

Lisa has created such a fabulous podcast that provides excellent practical advice. After having a successful corporate career, Lisa took the leap, she now runs her own coaching and mentoring business, this podcast will no doubt be so helpful to those who may be curious about what it takes to make that decision to jump.
