It’s all very well imagining yourself running your own business as a way to escape the rat race. But what’s the reality? What skills will you need beyond the technical skills you’ve been mastering for the last 20 or 30 years? That’s why I wanted to talk to my guest today, Phyllis Smith.
Former founder of the Professional Business Women’s Network she’s an escapee from corporate world herself. She now has her fingers in many pies including as presenter at The Expert Channel.
For me, it’s her skills as a networker that really make her stand out. While this is a skill you benefit from if you work the traditional 9-5 it’s absolutely critical if you expect to make a living doing what you love. People need to know about you!

- Running your own business when you’re a mum
- Thinking like a business person
- Being a woman in a man’s world
- Time management
- Getting the skills you need to run a business
- Being the breadwinner
- Focusing on quality of life
