    My guest today is Shopé Delano, VP of Marketing at Charlie Oscar, a new-era group of digital consumer brands, and Founder of her own upcoming workwear brand Kind Regards . Shopé's internet life began back in 2010, with a fashion blog and youtube channel that saw her work freelance with the likes of Nike, Puma and ASOS. After a successful stint in academia, she entered the world of startups and venture capital, working with the likes of Depop, Forward Partners and now Charlie Oscar. I originally came into contact with Shopé after her viral open letter to working women - I read it and just had to message her about just how nail-on-head it was - so we got talking about the topics in my book, and her work. I’m incredibly excited to have her join me today.

From a bedroom in Manchester, Steven dropped out of his university course and built what would become one of the world’s most influential social media companies at just 21 years old, before taking his company public at 27 with a market valuation of almost £200m. Steven’s debut book, 'Happy Sexy Millionaire, is a Sunday Times Bestseller and more recently Steven and I chatted on his own podcast about self-belief, mental health, running a business and pretty much everything in between. I’m excited to have him here today to continue that conversation.

Love! Just felt rushed

Very interesting questions, everything I would want to know. However, sometimes felt the questions were rushed and there was little time for conversation. Love love love that grace finally has her own podcast!

So poor

Terrible sound quality, super scripted and unnatural. Grace literally talks about herself the whole time whether it’s relevant or not

Rushed

Quite rushed. Not a huge fan I prefer a relaxed chat
