    Going Self Employed | An HONEST Account With Matthew Knight

    Going Self Employed | An HONEST Account With Matthew Knight

    Do you want to become self employed this year? Are you keen to find out what life is really like on the other side of having a job?
    If you want to make the leap away from employment and earn your own living, this episode is for you.
    Matthew Knight is a Strategy and Innovation Partner working for himself. Having left his job years ago to pursue this new path, Matthew has firsthand experience of the ups and downs that come with self employment. 
    In this episode, we discuss many of the areas that aren’t often told. Struggles with mental health, imposter syndrome, clients, companionship and more.
    These are all such important topics, especially when you step into the uncertain path of self employment. I say this because going it alone brings a whole host of questions, choices and challenges. The so called ‘freedom’ that comes with working independently can very often lead to overwhelm, uncertainty and difficulty and we discuss our experiences of all these during this conversation.
    Matthew was completely honest and authentic and I know this insight will be so useful to so many people in a similar situation.
    Please enjoy my conversation with Matthew Knight.

    Monzo | Raising £18m in Under 3 Hours With Tristan Thomas, Head of Marketing and Community

    Monzo | Raising £18m in Under 3 Hours With Tristan Thomas, Head of Marketing and Community

    Follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
    Welcome again to Life Design Diaries, the business and lifestyle podcast where we bring you interesting conversations with interesting  people.
    On todays episode, I’m speaking with Tristan Thomas who is the Head of Marketing and Community at Monzo. 
    Monzo is the bank of the future. Since they started they’ve been busy building the best current account in the world an they now have more than one million customers using their debit cards. Unlike traditional banks, they have no high street premises, instead their service is provided by their app making it convenient and relevant to its customers.
    To give you a slight insight into how popular this bank is becoming, recently they raised an additional £20m from a crowdfunding campaign… £18m of it came in just 2 hours and 45 minutes. 
    People who use Monzo, often turn into raving fans. Think about it, when was the last time you heard someone raving about a bank?
    Tristan has pretty much been there from the start to drive this success and he’s only 26.
    Please enjoy my conversation with Tristan Thomas.

    #48 Psychotherapist Rachel Tillman | Wholesome & Meaningful Living

    #48 Psychotherapist Rachel Tillman | Wholesome & Meaningful Living

    I feel strange. 
    I'm not quite as busy as I could be, and it's giving me more time for chats and side projects, but I'm feeling like I am not really doing anything productive. 
    Why are we so tuned to feel like doing paid work is productive, but doing exploration, investment in yourself and future-facing work is less important?
    If it was anyone else, i'd be telling them to embrace the quiet times, and make best use of it... but following your own advice is far harder than dishing it out.
    That was the LinkedIn post I stumbled across which lead me to todays guest. 
    I didn’t write this post, and neither did she, but it was her answer to this post, addressing this situation of feeling unproductive when focussing on yourself that got me fascinated into how she thinks.
    Rachel Tillman is a psychotherapist, she helps people and organisations, successfully navigate change as they work toward wholeness and more meaningful engagement. She uses creative, refreshing, and honest ways to do this and believes work should be life-giving.
    Yes, on this podcast we’ve had on what you’d call ‘successful’ founders of companies in recent weeks to learn how they built the brands they are so proud of, but I’m so excited to share with you this episode with Rachel and provide a fascinating perspective on a whole host of topics that can no doubt help all of us  listening in whatever pursuit you have. 
    Just a quick caveat, none of Rachel’s advice should be taken as medical advice. More, her thoughts on these wide ranging topics
    Its a good one, please enjoy my conversation with Rachel Tillman.
