  • S5 E01: Leona Thrift-ola, Indie Roller

    In the first episode of the new season I chat with Leona Thrift-ola, founder of Indie Roller and the most requested guest I have ever had!

With 17 years in business, Leona is a font of knowledge and in this episode, we chat all about vulnerability in business, feeling like you’re ‘failing’, changing business direction when your heart isn’t in it anymore and of course, the power and pitfalls of Instagram! A must-listen for anyone who has feared they weren’t enough.
