Practical small business advice in these podcasts!

What I love about these podcast episode guests is that they are very relatable to the general public. Really enjoyed listening to the first episode of the most recent season with Potts candles. It was a brilliant story of a lockdown hobby which turned into a successful retail business now stocked in Selfridges.
