The book is aimed at business owners starting their journey or looking to shake up their business, putting the right planning in place, creating more time, and managing their team properly. The Podcast aims to shine a spotlight on some of the best established and up-and-coming business owners South Wales has to offer. Members of our team get the chance to speak openly and frankly to people that have taken the big step to go it on their own.
As a firm we wanted to give budding business owners, and those already well on their journey, the opportunity to take a candid look at the highs and lows faced by other business owners of South Wales in 2019. We discover how they found success, their future plans, and what makes them tick.
