We also delved into a subject I’m curious about and that Emmeline is truly passionate about - using the moon’s phases in your planning and living / running your business by the moon’s cycle.

A joy when it shows up in my playlist

This podcast has a wonderful line-up of really interesting guests. And Josephine has a lovely interview manner that gently teases out their story, asking all the questions that we want to know as listeners. A definite favourite in my playlist.

Brilliant and Totally Inspiring

Totally love Josephine’s interview style and technique. I love her term ”side-hustle” and this is a must podcast for anyone dreaming or just starting a creative business who needs support and motivation.

The recent episode on self-doubt was really interesting and gave great advice.

Thank you Josephine 🙏🏼
