Ever wondered if there was another way to work? Or to raise a family? Or to just…be? It’s not uncommon to hear a business owner to talk of their ‘before’ life. The one where they felt the fear of failure. Or uphill struggle. Or absolutely-no-way-out stuck. Then slowly, they reveal how they rose from the ashes of that life, shining as their truest self within their new business, doing what they love. The stories generously shared by guests in this collection are ones of mental discovery, perseverance and transition, to help us all find our way.

Business Advice that's a real relief
When it comes to business advice, there are all sorts of things they don’t tell you. Coping with parental guilt, for example. Or the pros and cons of hiring friends. Or even how the flippin’ heck you tell your VAT from your IP (or if you even need to). That’s why we set up the Advice Hub; a sort of friendly online newspaper for small businesses, sharing golden insight and hard won wisdom from experts we know, our community, and of course, our very own Holly.
