    #9: Mandy Small

    For some, the turn of the New Year can be a time looked forward to with more trepidation than hope; as a result of their personal circumstances. It is for this reason that the inspiring story of Jamie and his mother Mandy Small must be heard.
     
    Hear how a young boy determined to make the sad death through suicide of his father Chris into a way of helping others. We are privileged and truly inspired to hear Jamie and Mandy’s story.
    And through touching on their own personal experiences of the effects of suicide during the interview, Ren and Mandy hope this story can reach anyone else in need of support; letting them know of the help available throughout the Armed Forces family and beyond. You are never alone.
    *Please note this podcast was recorded in 2019. Mandy’s SSAFA event, cited in the podcast, will take place on March 14th 2020. Tickets for purchase are available here.

Love the honesty

I listen to plenty of startup and business podcasts but what I love about this one is the honesty and openness of the interviewees together with their inspiring stories.
