Welcome to episode 106, where Richard is joined by Dr. Hayley Lewis, a fellow occupational psychologist and specialist in people development at work.

Hayley describes her career journey, her career decisions and her passion for working with middle managers. She also outlines some of the findings from her recent doctoral research into the experience of female entrepreneurs.

What does it take to ‘be your own boss’? Whose advice should we take? Are the messages on social media really helping women who want to work for themselves? Hayley shares all.

As ever, thanks for listening!
