Klantrecensies

Highly informative podcast! ,

Fantastic podcast!

Love this series, it makes me wonder if I should change direction and start a woodworking business myself. If I were to do that, this podcast would be an enormous help!

Great podcast

Working in IT, thinking about a career change this podcast just gets it spot on. Looking forward to future episodes. Also big advantage it’s British, so I can much more relate living close by in The Netherlands.
