Show Notes

In this week's episode, I speak to someone close to my heart, Holly Tucker. I met Holly when she invited me on her podcast, Conversations of Inspiration, and I immediately felt I was talking to a friend. It's no wonder Holly is a beloved mentor to so many.

Holly Tucker is the founder of notonthehighstreet and Holly & Co and is the UK Ambassador to Creative Small Businesses. She believes that following your passion and building a business doing what you love is the key to a happy and fulfilled life. Through Holly & Co, a creative content company, Holly is working to positively influence this creative movement by redefining what it means to be a ‘small business’, encouraging more women to start their own businesses, as well as empowering our young with the skills to thrive in the new working world they are entering.

Bringing colour and creativity to the business world, Holly seeks to advise and inspire anyone who is dreaming of starting or is already on their business journey through her podcast Conversations of Inspiration, events, her inspiration and advice hub, and now, Do What You Love, Love What You Do, a Sunday Times Bestseller business book.

Listen as we discuss:
