005: Sharmaine Lovegrove. Publishing Books. Getting Payrises.
On this month's episode, I'm in conversation with publishing powerhouse Sharmaine Lovegrove, head of new(ish) imprint Dialogue Books. We talk about what it's been like making the transition from self-employment and running her own businesses to joining a large company as a full-time employee, the business lessons she learned from watching The Apprentice, and how she chooses which books to publish. Plus, I offer some advice to someone whose bosses keep promising a payrise that's yet to materialise, who's also trying to figure out if she's even on the right career path at the same time.
