The perfect work partner!

Franky and Charlie’s honest and open conversations are the perfect accompaniment to a working from home day when I fancy a bit of company! Having two perspectives is really beneficial when it comes to sharing a balanced view of life as a business owner as no two stories are ever the same. Now to find my own friend with business benefits

An essential resource for new start businesses

As a new start business, there's a lot to learn.

Listening to this podcast has become a part of my daily routine. Each time I listen, I feel I gain so much knowledge and am left feeling motivated and inspired.

Work chat with your internet BFFs

The thing I like about this podcast is that it feels like you’re having a cuppa with a couple of your work besties, chewing the fat about stuff we all struggle with. It feels natural & personal rather than scripted & prescriptive, which makes it far more powerful in terms of getting me to think about my business. Can’t wait for the full series in 2019!
