Finding Business Buddies and Beating Solo-Business-Owner Loneliness with Gemma Scopes - One The Make podcast episode 28 hosted by Josephine Brooks


On the Make Episode 28 with Gemma Scopes on finding business buddies and beating solo-business-owner-loneliness

Gemma is a podcaster, blogger and speaker on all things curing loneliness and finding new friends. I love what Gemma’s doing to open up the conversation on loneliness and making female friendships as an adult. This feels like something we don’t talk about enough and growing a business in particular can feel like quite a lonely endeavour so it felt like a good time to share an episode on the topic of business friendships.

There are bad days and there are tough times and it takes a lot to be a business owner and it’s great to make connections with other business owners that get it - Gemma Scopes
