    How to Navigate Career Pivots + Advice on Progressing Your Career in 2020 and Beyond

    How to Navigate Career Pivots + Advice on Progressing Your Career in 2020 and Beyond

    How are you feeling about your work world right now? 2020 has been a year for the history books for a number of reasons, and has presented us all with a whole myriad of challenges. In amongst those is navigating new work-life waters. Did you make a career pivot this year? Is your employer instigating a hiring freeze? Have you experienced an ‘aha!’ moment? In today’s episode we are sharing our own career journeys and lifting the lid on our same-but-different career paths with blogging. Ella shares why she’s pivoted away from blogging and into a new career altogether, and Monica opens up about the multiple hats she wears outside of the blogging world.

    In today’s episode we also play “what to do if . . .” with career scenarios, including what to do if you have been made redundant/graduated in 2020/want to pursue a side hustle. 
    We hope that today’s episode can help you to find clarity, or at least comradeship, in your own career journey. As always we would love to hear your thoughts so please do drop us a line, or send us a DM.

    AUDIO NOTE
    Due to COVID-19 we have recorded Season 10 of Let’s Discuss Podcast remotely. This has allowed us the opportunity to connect with you all (yay!) via your earbuds, but unfortunately some of the audio isn’t as on point as we’d like it to be. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you enjoy the show nonetheless.

    What We Have Been Doing to Stay Sane (Most of the Time) This Year

    What We Have Been Doing to Stay Sane (Most of the Time) This Year

    Welcome back to a brand new season of Let’s Discuss podcast! We are so happy to be entering double digits here with you, kick starting Season 10.
    Today’s episode is a ‘COVID-19 catch-up’. Things have changed dramatically in the world since Season 9 of the show, when we were on the cusp of our first lockdown here in the UK.
    Since then, the term “corona-coaster” has been banded about with good reason. It has been a year of many ups and downs, and today we’re sharing what’s kept us going during this ‘unprecedented’ time. 
    We hope you’ll enjoy this week’s episode, and let us know how you get on playing Pandemic Bingo with us!

So easy to listen to! ,

I'm so glad I found this podcast!!

I knew immediately when I visited Ella's and Monica's websites that they had a keen eye for aesthetics. I never knew, though, that you could portray such a beautiful aesthetic through an audio podcast! Everything from the questions they ask to the careers of the guests they bring on shows how dedicated these two incredible women are to helping their audiences create happy and beautiful lives. I'll be sure to stick around for this podcast!

Love it!

Great chats and guest interviews. Fun, inspiring and somehow very calming.

Rebeccabott ,

These two girls have got you covered

Instagrammers have been making their way over to the podcast app for a while now. These two have made one of my favorites. Covering a wide foray of topics and answering the question that pop up in your head when you are scrolling through insta and wonder how actual humans pull off such a perfect seeming life
