    Ep125: Candle maker conversation with Sade (Hope Creations Candle Co) #2

    Ep125: Candle maker conversation with Sade (Hope Creations Candle Co) #2

    In one of my earlier podcast episodes I asked my listeners to contact me if they were a brand new candle maker and wanted to be on the podcast so we could record the beginning of their journey (and to also do a follow up episode 12 months later). This time last year the beautiful Sade and I recorded her story as a new candle maker, so in today's episode we're chatting about the past 12 months and what the journey has been like for Sade. This is a lovely conversation that will encourage you along your path.
     
    In this episode we chat about:
    - The perseverance needed when obstacles come your way (in your business and personal life).
    - Why pauses in your business doesn't mean you've failed.
    - The importance of prioritising your personal growth journey.

    Ep124: A new chapter (exciting times!)

    Ep124: A new chapter (exciting times!)

    At first I was unsure if I was going to record and release this episode, but then I realised it was my own perception of fear holding me back, and as I always say and believe: when your goals and dreams are bigger than your fear, then nothing can get in your way of making it happen. Can't wait to hear what you think!
