Running a small to medium business is hard work. There is no easy path to success, and it is only through being real life business practitioners that we learn what works and what doesn’t.

Talking Better Business was created with the aim of providing a platform for sharing of ideas, thoughts, and knowledge between small and medium business owners.

Through the medium of podcasting our guests tell their story and share their journey about how they built their businesses. We hear about the successes they have had, the challenges they faced, the wins they recorded, lows they encountered, and what they have learnt along the way. Our conversations are raw but they are real.

As you listen to the fire side chats, we hope that you take away some ideas and thoughts that you too can implement into your own business, and achieve the success you desire.

Below are my most recent podcasts click here to listen to more.
