Hi, I'm Sarah Swanton, Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Founder of Happy Healthy Entrepreneur, and I invite you to join me as I get in conversation with everyday small business owners & solo-entrepreneurs, just like you and me, across the UK (and sometimes further afield too) as we discuss the 'inner journey' of being self-employed. I'll be asking them all about their highs and lows, the challenges, insights and learnings they've had along the way. As you'll see, it's very much an open, honest, and reflective style of conversation but with the aim of inspiring and helping others on their own entrepreneurial journey. I think there is so much learning and insight to be had when listening to others talk about their own self-employment journey, and it helps to know when hearing others speak that "oh, it's not just me!" Happy listening folks and I hope you enjoy it. If you'd like to be a guest on the show, just drop me a line to email@example.com For more information about the work that I do, go to www.sarahswanton.com

I just love this podcast! Sarah has lovely free flowing approach to her interviews and really great guests. With every single guest I get that ... oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one feeling this way! ... as a self emloyed person I get to see plenty customers but not other entrepreneurs doing or struggling with the same things, so to listen to other people's experience and learn from it is jsut priceless! The only bad thing about it is I have to wait all week for the next episode!!!
Love this podcast Sarah! Keep going!
