4: "When all this happened, which I obviously wasn't prepared for, I felt like I'd made the biggest mistake of my life". Donna Jackson, Digital Marketing Consultant, content creator and writer.
"...but if it wasn't for making that leap, when I went off and left Comedy Central, then going onto Living, going to Sky and then going on to this other company, none of this other stuff would have happened. At the time I felt like I should've stayed there. You know... everything gets easier. I could do it until I'm 60. It's just the most amazing company. But when all this other stuff happened, which I obviously wasn't prepared for, I just felt like I'd made the biggest mistake of my life. But then I look back now and I didn't make the biggest mistake, I just learned and grew up during that journey, I learned a huge amount of things, which I probably would never have learned because I would have only stayed at a certain level there". It has enabled me to grow". Donna Jackson, Digital Marketing Consultant, Content Creator, Social Media Influencer and writer. Donna and I discuss working in television and its culture towards flexible working, going freelance, working around small children, having your life out in the open as an Influencer, how to get started in the digital world, being authentic when working for yourself, and so much more. Extremely upbeat (just like Donna!), an insight into a world which may be alien to you as it was to me, funny, honest, authentic and unmissable!  Keep in touch with my guest Donna Jackson on Instagram or email thecuriousmummy@outlook.com Read the episode transcript here Follow People Who Work on Instagram for daily inspiration and fresh ideas: @peoplewhoworkpodcast People Who Work podcast - new episodes every Tuesday, subscribe right now!

3. "It's very clicky and some people might look down on others because of what they do". Sharon Salihu, Mental Heath First Aider and Administration Manager.
"It's very clicky and some people don't talk to each other or some people might look down on others because of what they do. It's got better over the years. It was very segregated... depending on what part of the Arts you worked... determined how you were judged". Sharon Salihu, Mental Heath First Aider and Administration Manager. Sharon talks to us about accidentally falling into her job after failing her A-Levels, becoming a fan of wrestling as a channel of acceptance, the pressure on teenagers to choose a vocation and how we are expected to behave in a certain way at work, a way which silences your voice and your ideas. Honest, extremely relatable and unmissable.
