See What You Made Me Do

Baz, thank you for this. Such a fantastic interview. It’s a tough subject & it was all explained so simply. The extract that Jess read from the book was eye opening for me, especially the Gentlemen bit. It is financial control for me & there was never supports for me to return to work. My daughter is now 20 & I’m working hard on myself.

Have to love the honest down to earth approach from Baz, what’s not to like. Great range of topics so far!
