This month we’ve got Sabine Zetteler in the hotseat, founder of one of the creative industries’ foremost PR agencies, Zetteler. Sabine is a PR maestro, so of course she shared her advice on how best to promote your projects and ideas at launch; and we also talked about how (and when) to scale from being a one-woman ‘solopreneur’ to running a fully-fledged business of many. Plus – advice on how to deal with rude clients as a freelancer, in this month’s segment of Ask Otegha.
This month I’m in conversation with Lana Elie, founder of luxury e-florist Floom. From how to put together a business plan, to the pros and cons of crowdfunding, and how to manage and motivate a fast-growing team, think of this conversation as Biz 101 for budding entrepreneurs. Plus – my advice for someone who thinks they’re being treated differently at work because they’re a woman.
On this month’s episode I’m talking to journalist Zing Tsjeng, the UK editor of Broadly (VICE’s female-focused channel), about everything from how best to pitch editors as a writer, to her experiences as an outspoken woman – and woman of colour – online.
Plus, I share some thoughts and reading recommendations on female competition in the workplace, advise a listener trying to pivot from a corporate field to a more creative role, and counsel a recent grad struggling to get their foot on the career ladder.
For our very first episode, we talk to Serena Guen, founder and CEO of multimedia travel brand SUITCASE, best known for its travel and fashion-inspired quarterly magazine.
Plus – we hear from a freelancer who’s having trouble getting her clients to pay her, and offer some advice on how to cope if you’re struggling with a bossy co-worker (who isn’t actually your boss).
