Bette lynch story

I have just listened to chat with Bette.
I have had many experiences of life and people but the humanity, intensity, belief in Bette,s life so far is mind blowing. A total inspirational and true story. Wishing we could get our politicians and people in public life to listen and more importantly hear what this Lady is saying. Mar

A lovely listen

I really enjoyed listening to Fi & Rachel - love that Fi has stayed true to herself keeping her quirks & creativity - I also admire her ’go get it’ attitude - I almost think keeping a new business going is tougher than starting up in some ways but it certainly sounds exciting - I really hope to make it to a future event - well done Rachel lovely interviewing style - relaxed but focused - bravo x
