010 - Reinvent and restart
Ever had that feeling where you’re reaching breaking point? Don’t be afraid to change, leave, move on or go somewhere you can start again. Changing your energy changes everything. For our 10th and final episode of Series 1 of The Self Made Podcast, I was joined by Yvonne Yeboah who works within investments as a ‘Transition Manager’. Yvonne shared with us an in-depth account of her journey in the corporate world and the hurdles she has faced and overcome which brought her to her current role. We also discuss how she is taking the conversations around ‘Black Lives Matter’ from the streets to the board room to help amplify black voices within her company. You can follow Yvonne on Instagram @vonyeboah and @thecorporatewallflower and connect with her on Linked In by searching Yvonne Adelaide Yeboah. #BlackLivesMatter

006 - Passion and purpose
Are you getting in your own way? Is it that you can't, or just that you're not giving yourself permission to? What you desire in life is normally on the other side of your own fear or doubt. For this weeks episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with the infectious fashion stylish turned life coach, Kira Matthews. We got into the nitty gritty of giving yourself permission to say yes to your dreams, not being afraid to look at the bigger picture, accepting negative thoughts and using them to fuel you and what to do if you want to move from point A to point B in your career/life but you don't quite know how.  You can follow Kira on Instagram @kirathebold and find more info about her coaching on her website Kira also has her very own podcast 'Bold, Brilliant and Broke' which is a breath of fresh air and a goldmine of empowering guests and topics centred around creatives and the all too familiar struggles they face day-to-day.
