6/26/2019
More
I suppose when you hold yourself out to be the internet's advice-giving big sister, it was only ever going to be a matter of time before somebody sent in a dating question. The problem? I'm now almost 10 years married, and have been known to remark that it anything ever happened to my husband I'd happily start collecting cats rather than put myself out there again. Dating in 2019 seems exhausting for this extroverted introvert, and I really admire those of you with the bravery - and energy -...

4/8/2019
More
And we're back! I'm really excited about this episode, which is the first to feature a listener question and so probably the closest yet to the vision I originally had for the show. I'm joined by Briony Cullin, a Glasgow-based SEO and digital marketing expert who specialises in supporting independent businesses. There were so many topics I could have had Briony on to discuss and who knows, I maybe will in the future. But when I received a listener question about living with chronic pain she...
