    024: Learn to say NO as a Business Owner with Lindsey with Urbann Nest

    024: Learn to say NO as a Business Owner with Lindsey with Urbann Nest

    Learning to say “no” is something we all struggle with, in our personal lives and businesses. It can be so hard as a small business, especially when you’re just starting out, to not just say “yes” to every opportunity that comes your way. When you’re starting out that might be just what you need to allow you to experiment and build up confidence, but at some point you need to set boundaries… and that means saying “no” to certain things.







    Join host Bess Wilkins (Life with Bess) as she chats to Lindsey from Urbann Nest who has been in the small business world for over 6 years about her story, why it’s important to say “no” and whether she’s ever regretted saying “no” to an opportunity.

    022: Let's talk all things Instagram with Yulia from Matryskoha Doll Shop

    022: Let's talk all things Instagram with Yulia from Matryskoha Doll Shop

    Social media, we love it and we hate it…but when you’re a business it’s hard work to keep on top of the latest trend, posting stories and photos, replying to your followers and creating reels. This episode features someone we consider the reel queen!







    Join host Bess Wilkins (Life with Bess) and guest Yulia (Matryoshka Doll Shop) as they chat all things Instagram – how to have an Instagram account for business but also as a hobby page. This episode was filmed in late 2021 and there have been a few changes to Instagram such as chronological feed options but we think the fundamentals of what Yulia shares are still very much relevant to all of us.
