    BITESIZE #52 | Grace Beverley: Passion & purpose can come AFTER the hard work

    BITESIZE #52 | Grace Beverley: Passion & purpose can come AFTER the hard work

    We rewind back to episode 59 and our chat with Grace Beverley. Grace is founder and CEO of two successful businesses, Tala and Shreddy.
    Grace talks brilliantly about how passion and purpose has now been sold as a ‘must have’. With the rise of social media, we now want this at the beginning of our working lives rather than finding it through our working life.
    Sometimes we need to go through the hard stuff, before we get the good stuff! 
    Listen and watch to the full episode: https://www.thehighperformancepodcast.com/podcast/grace-beverley 
    Grace talks about what gave her the confidence to get started, How she manages those around her with more experience and her views on social media and navigating modern life.
