Can running your own business really bring you more flexibility and freedom? Find out my approach to balancing my time between work and outdoor adventures by listening to this episode of About The Adventure podcast. During this interview I also share the importance of my personal values that feed into my work as an ethical branding designer, why spending time in nature is so important to me, and a behind the scenes peek into creating The Brand Builder Course.
This is the longest episode yet, packed full of valuable wisdom and honest reflection.
I think that this episode will be particularly valuable to people interested in branding, ethical business, sustainability, and creating work grounded by personal values. I think it will also appeal to anyone who is thinking about working as a freelancer, starting a business, or creating an online course.
GOOD MONDAYS PODCAST
How to turn your multiple passions into a business you love
Do you find the prospect of doing one thing throughout your career quite restricting? I can definitely relate, and I know many of the amazing women I work with do too. Instead, what if you could combine your passions to create a heart-centred business (on your own terms) that actually thrived as a result?
The wonderful Charlotte, founder of Creative Wilderness, shares how she did just that by embracing her skills and interests as a multi-passionate entrepreneur to create a business and lifestyle that she loves (which includes lots of inspiring time in nature and adventures in her gorgeous campervan, Autumn!)

THE ETHICAL HOUR: CRAFTING YOUR IDENTITY
I loved chatting on The Ethical Hour podcast as it is one of my favourites! In this episode we discuss branding, finding your values and so much more – from supporting small businesses to overcoming entrepreneurial loneliness and smashing the myths behind success. I also talk about hows it’s possible to redefine success and start living on your own terms, and in today’s episode I share practical tips to show us how.
I discuss my favourite branding projects and how I approach design in a different way. I’m also sharing tips on how to define your values as a business and how they underpin everything you do.
We talk about how being a nice, ethical, intuitive and community orientated person is key to how I run my business. And even better, it actually works in my favour.
Amongst other things, we talk about how to manage being a highly sensitive person, the importance of good head shots, and how to use social media in a way that feels genuine.
The photographer we mention is Alexanderward.com
And we mention the book The Highly Sensitive Person

MINDFULNESS & SELF EMPLOYMENT
In this podcast I chat with Benjamin from Head Rest about mindfulness and self employment and the things that have helped me carve out a different path and way of doing business.
We discuss how daily mindful rituals have helped with energy, inspiration, creativity and enjoyment. We also compare how we work in a different way with an ethical focus and how we craft our working days to embrace our natural rhythms and energy levels. There are also some tips on how to make little changes to bring you back and get into a state of flow where the best work and ideas happen!
