What cool things have you been doing lately?

I help side-hustlers build a business that gives them the freedom to do more of what they love, by helping them manage their time more effectively and giving them the tools to be more productive. 

I started my business when I found all of the creative business content out there is aimed at people who are running their business full time. But, there were lots of people like me who were growing a business while also working a full-time job.

My blog is where I share my own experiences of having a side-hustle and my tips and guidance on managing your time and boosting your productivity. I also have a podcast, On The Make, where I speak to other creative business owners and business experts about all aspects of growing a creative business and creating the lifestyle you long for. 

In January 2019 I’m taking my side hustle from part-time to full-time! I can’t wait to focus completely on what I love doing and help even more side-hustlers grow their creative side-hustle.

Which girls are doing cool things in your world?

Oh my goodness so many! But a couple that spring to mind are:

Fiona Barrows - I'm just loving her podcast There Are Other Ways at the moment, she covers such a variety of fascinating and really relevant topics under the umbrella of how people are living life a little differently. 

Lauren Aston Designs - I recently knitted one of her chunky knit jumper kits and loved how relaxing I found it. Everything she does on Instagram is golden so head over and follow her. 

What was the last book you read?

Playing Big by Tara Mohr - it’s really highlighted how I ‘play small’ and hold myself back from achieving my full potential. This book has been full of ah-ha moments for me and I think it’s relevant to just about every female out there.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This is a tricky one because podcasts and audio books have taken over from listening to music but I do love attempting to sing along to Arianna Grande songs on full volume in my car. When the volume's really loud, I sound just like her...

Where can people find you online?

I tend to hangout most on Instagram so that's the best place to find me
I have a podcast for side-hustlers who want to do more of what they love, called On The Make
