Own It! is a weekly podcast for aspiring entrepreneurs, solopreneurs & small business owners everywhere. With years of business experience, great friends and ex-business partners Nicola Cairncross and Judith Morgan share – in their trademark straight talking, humorous way, what they’ve been up to that week; what’s inspired, impressed and infuriated them, business book recommendations, the marketing and money tips, tools and techniques they use themselves, mixing up deeply practical business “how to” with the psychology of success and clients challenges and success stories. As your business depends on you 100% and you need some sort of work/life balance they don’t neglect how to combine being a successful entrepreneur with being a partner, parent, sibling and child of ageing parents. Nicola and Judith are living the entrepreneurial and digital nomad life themselves every single day, so who better to learn from in this down to earth, funny, quirky podcast?
