    Biz Mixer - Business Networking with a Difference!

    Biz Mixer - Business Networking with a Difference!

    In this weeks episode, I am so excited to be chatting with Lorna Lyon, the founder of small business networking community, Biz Mixer.

    Lorna tells us all about what got her into networking and how she created a group based on community, support & friendship rather than the pushy sales driven groups that you may associate with networking!

    She also tells us about how 2020 forced her to take her brand new business completely online way earlier than she had planned and we chat about the importance of having a strong network. Not only to celebrate the highs with, but also to support you through the inevitable lows that come with running a small business!

    Gerri Campbell Photography - Finding Your Passion After the Kids have Flown the Nest

    Gerri Campbell Photography - Finding Your Passion After the Kids have Flown the Nest

    I am so excited to be joined this week by the wonderful Gerri Campbell who a few years ago was faced with the all too common problem of a loss of purpose and identity when her kids began to fly the nest.

    Instead of letting those feeling take over, Gerri took action and enrolled on a programme that helped her to take her love for photography and turn it into a business. In this episode, she tells us all about how she built up her family photography business and why she eventually decided to pivot into personal brand photography for creative businesses.

    We also chat all about why it is so important to be visible in both your family and brand photos and why we all need to remember to show up authentically and be social on social media!
