Episode no. 7 of my podcast ‘How to Curate Your Life – Work Life Balance for the Creative Entrepreneur’ is with the wonderful Donna Wilson. I’ve known Donna through the design/retail/wholesale world for yonks and as well as being a brilliant and original designer with a successful business and career, she is a lovely, down to earth, humble and encouraging women and mother.


In this weeks episode you’ll hear all about how her business started and grew, what she’s struggled with and learnt over the years, how she’s developed what she does and curated her life to work better for her, her business and her family and her advice for those starting out on a creative career.

Thank you, thank you. Have wonderful and inspiring weeks and remember to take the space you need, where you can, to be still and quiet. I find that’s the time that things I’ve been worrying about or working hard on fall into place. Lizzie :)
