Hello, we are Charlie and Franky, two self-employed business owners living in Bristol in the south-west of England. Friends With Business Benefits is a podcast for creatives who crave connection, understanding and support. Franky runs a copywriting business called Love Audrey, helping brands and creative businesses find their voice and tell their story online. As a business mentor, Charlie helps clients find clarity and confidence in their creative work. We are friends with benefits…business benefits. For the last 18 months, we’ve been meeting for regular co-mentoring sessions. Working for yourself can be lonely at times, but through our monthly meetups we’ve found the support and accountability we were craving in our working lives. Through our podcast, we hope to continue these conversations, share what we’re learning and also learn from you, our listeners.

Great Intro to Co-mentoring
This was a great introduction to co-mentoring from Charlie and Frankie. I enjoyed listening to the practicalities of how sessions might work as well as how important the dynamic between people who are co-mentoring has to be.
I’ll definitely be listening to the next episode.
I really enjoyed listening to Charlie and Frankie talk about lives as freelancers and how co mentoring works for them. Some useful information too! Well worth a listen
