This week we’re switching things up a bit and talking to designer and small business mentor Lola Hoad about how she created her own business out of necessity for her mental health and wellbeing. Plus she tells us how she gets her inner critic to STFU, and talks about the importance of self-care when you’re a boss. Lola tells us about how ‘busyness’ is actually a sign of burnout and she gives some great advice on how to work smarter and more efficiently so you don’t ever have to get to the burnout stage.
This episode is supported by the awesome Squirrel Sisters – if you haven’t checked out their delicious fruit & nut snack bars yet, then I suggest you get your cute little butt down to your nearest Boots, Planet Organic, or Wholefoods store. They come in 4 flavours: raspberry ripple, coconut cashew, cocoa brownie, and cacao orange. They’re a great source of fibre and plant based protein; a good option for refuelling after a workout, or just a lil snack to tide you over. You can also get 15% off by using the code ‘dontsaltmysquirrel’ in their online shop. And don’t forget to tag your pics with ‘dontsaltmysquirrel’ so I can be nosey.
