Episode 34: Being Boss - With Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon
Episode 34: Being Boss - With Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon25/06/2017

Today's show is a conversation with Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon of Being Boss Podcast fame. These two are real leaders - their podcast has become huge partly, I think, due to their down-to-earth yet fiesty and authentic approach to their work and their lives. In their show they help creative entrepreneurs grow their businesses and improve their lives but here they offer a fascinating insight in to how they think and what drives them as creative entrepreneurs themselves. This show is ideal if you run your own company or are thinking of doing so. But it's also important if you work for big business to understand the mindset of people who would probably never work for anyone but themselves. Numbers of business owners are rising, particularly in the over 55 category, and not only does that mean your talent is attracted to such a lifestyle but they could be setting themselves up in competition to you. They don't need your global infrastructure to make a big impact, as Emily and Kathleen show.
