Joanna's Story

Joanna is a young woman who has experienced some of the emotional upheaval that those of us experienced in business will be able to identify with. Her story is in the form of a 16 minute podcast, courtesy of The Guardian. Get yourself a cup of coffee and relax while you have a listen. It is worth it, even if only to recognise that you are not alone with your business problems/anxieties/frustrations.

If you do not have time for the whole podcast, then scroll to 12 minutes in where Joanna speaks for a couple of minutes about not talking enough about the things we struggle with, and the importance of being honest about our feelings.

One of the problems of talking with honesty is that we feel that people will not understand us, and will judge us. Well that is what we are here for. All of the Jennings Business Mentors have experienced similar emotions in their own business journey and they have worked their way through them. We are happy to just listen to you in complete confidence and share our stories. We will not judge you and we will not try to tell you what to do. You have to find your own solutions as they are very personal to you.

And when you apply for Jennings Business Mentors you are automatically invited to our Mentoring Mingles where only mentors and clients are invited. This is an opportunity to meet like-minded business owners who have not been afraid to ask for help.
