Podcast 35: Stopping the glorification of ‘busy’, with Jen Carrington

“We think our worth is from how hard we burn ourselves into the ground”

This week I caught up with my friend and creative coach Jen Carrington for one of the whirlwind conversations we always have when we’re together. We both talk fast and dive into tangents, so this is a much more informal natter than the usual ‘interview’ you might be used to here, but it’s jam-packed with insight, experience and hopefully, things to make you nod and smile along. Jen and I also share details towards the end of a very exciting new joint podcast project we have planned for the New Year!
