The North Star podcast is here to help you find your purpose. The definition of the north star is to act as a guiding light, which is what we hope to provide with our wisdom and real life experiences. This podcast is suited to anyone looking to change career, start a business or pivot into something new. Our hosts Claire & Pete will talk about their career highs and lows, with some awesome guest speakers along the way too.
What does success look like to you? With guest speaker Rachel Swann
In this episode we're joined by Rachel Swann, a commercially astute leader with experience in Private Equity-backed SaaS, digital and ecommerce businesses, with a passion for tech.
Rachel shares with us how important her children are to her in not only her own success, but in helping to build the success of her next generation too.
We all discuss what success looks like, both from the tangible to the intangible. We also discuss how you can be a success without stepping on others, and how the only person responsible for your success is you.

Talking About Leadership and Confidence with Sarah Foster
In this episode we're delighted to invite Sarah Foster, MD at Comply Direct, to join us on The North Star Podcast. Sarah is the author of a confidence book, Yabadaba Do It, and spends this episode talking about what led her to write a book on confidence and her high-performing career success to date.
Pete and Claire loved having Sarah on the show as we talked all about success, leadership, confidence, masculine v feminine and also started discussing sustainability. We felt that the topic of sustainability deserved its own podcast so Sarah joins us for a part 2 in our next release.

The Importance of Mindset in Business Growth & Success
In this episode we explain the habits and mindset shifts we've made to achieve success. We explore where manifestation fits into the business world, how to gain focus, be more productive and live a happy and successful life.
Refreshing and candid - at last, a ‘business’ podcast I can enjoy and relate to
I love the attitude, energy and candour from both Claire and Pete, especially the acknowledgement of life and all its pressures and joys, and the relationship with the world of work. The style of ‘a chat’ is a great antidote to other podcasts which sometimes feel like they’re trying (too) hard, and it’s particularly enjoyable to hear real people talk about what I call the life-work balance and how it’s applicable to different people in different ways.
I really enjoyed the stress and success episode, like many listeners I’m juggling all of life’s demands and experience both stress and success to varying degrees week in, week out!! Refreshing to discuss it in casual conversation!
Relatable and Motivational
I have to say this isn’t my usual podcast but I absolutely love it and can’t wait for more! There are lots of ‘business focused’ podcasts that feel very removed from me. This feels like two people having a chat, that happens to be very interesting and I can’t help but want to hear more!
