Today on the podcast:
This is episode 92 of my business podcast ‘The Online Business Podcast’ – you can subscribe to it everywhere podcasts are found.
This is a press record and talk podcast about my journey in business from 2011-2021.
It goes through my failures, my successes and how both were equally as important as each other on my journey.
