What is the name of your podcast?
The Transit Lounge
When did you launch your podcast?
How would you best describe your podcast? What is the show about?
It is about helping women to make a career change to start their own business after the age of 40. It’s a combination of interviews with women who have done that and solo episodes giving insights and practical tips for women thinking about starting their own business with core themes of mindset, marketing and money.
Why did you decide to start a podcast?
I wanted to have a way to create consistent content to share with and build an audience. I am a bit of a talker and I thought a podcast would be easier than doing videos because I would have to do my hair and makeup!

Tell us about your business…
I specialise in working with women who have had a successful career and now want to start their own business. I help them do that through private coaching and my online program called The CEO You Collective.
How does your podcast support your business activity? Or is it a separate, hobby project?
It is a great free resource to share with people who might be interested in working with me, e.g. in Facebook groups or conversations, as well as on my website
helps me to refine my message and adds a bit of credibility to be able to say I have a podcast with over 100 episodes.
What advice would you offer women who are thinking about starting their own podcast?
Think about what the purpose is of the podcast, how does it fit into your bigger marketing plan, as well as who it’s for/ideal audience.
If you’re not sure about it you can also consider doing a short series rather than an ongoing/forever one as a way to test it out for a set number of episodes.
