podcast episode 43 – building a creative product based business with Sa Birchall

:: by Lizzie



I’m back with a new podcast episode for you. A couple of months ago I sat down (over Zoom) and recorded with Sa Birchall, founder of Cub & Pudding. We talk about her decision to leave her corporate job, her experience of building a creative product based business and the networks and systems she’s built around herself to support her in growing Cub & Pudding.
And of course . . . what this past year has felt and looked like for her and Cub & Pudding. Sa officially went full-time on her business in January 2020 and then, Covid. Yet Cub & Pudding is going from strength to strength (including adding adult pieces – hello gingham dress!). This week is Cub & Pudding’s 2nd birthday and Sa turns 40t as well. Happy Birthday Sa! Happy Birthday Pub & Pudding. You’re smashing it.

podcast episode no. 42 – growing through lockdown with Liz Mosley

:: by Lizzie




In this episode I talk to Liz Mosley, all about building a sustainable business that works for her. She’s a graphic designer (and mum) and her business, which she runs part time, has really grown over this past year. Yes, this past year – 2020.


We talk about the juggle and both share about how lockdown life has looked for our working families. We talk about finding space within that for ourselves. And! We talk all about Liz’s brilliant new podcast, ‘Building Your Brand’. Thanks as always for listening and huge thanks to Liz for the episode. It was great to catch up!

podcast episode no. 40 – growth without overwhelm

:: by Lizzie





Welcome back to the podcast guys. I hope this finds you well. This is episode no. 40 of ‘How to Curate Your Life – Work Life Balance for the Creative Entrepreneur’. I’ve recorded this solo show today, as a response to what’s been coming up regularly in my DMs on Instagram, as replies to my newsletter (are signup up to my newsletter? If not head over to lizzieforsmug.com and scroll to the bottom to join us) and the conversations I’ve been having with my coaching clients. Today we’re talking about how you can go about Growing without the Overwhelm.

So many of us are feeling busy, tired and overwhelmed by all of the todos in our businesses, careers and lives. We can feel like we just don’t have the time or energy to even think about growth. It feels like just another thing and more than you can handle right now. Today’s episode is essentially just me sharing with you my advice on how you might chose to go about growing in way that doesn’t feel overwhelming but that feels easy and good. I share some tools that you might want to use this week to help you move forward in a way that feels more aligned and spacious.

Have a listen and let me know what you think. Many blessings, Lizzie x

Welcome back to the podcast. Season 4 kicked off with a boom last week with my solo show all about Values and this week I’m back with an interview episode on Manifestation with the brilliant Victoria Jackson. I bloody love this woman!

She’s a Manifestation and Business Coach and expert on all things motivation and mindset. She also happens to be a brilliant writer (thank her previous career) so her blog is full of resources on these subject too. Check out the show notes below for the links you’ll need to find out more and get to know Victoria better.

This episode was such a joy to record (and edit and listen back to). Thank you Victoria! I thought you guys might find it interesting to hear two Money Mindset/Manifestation Coaches taking through what all this manifestation and money mindset stuff really means to us and looks like for us. You’ll hear a lot about our beliefs, teaching and values in this episode and you’ll also hear two women who really respect each other having a conversation that inspires and fills us both up. My hope is that spills over and inspires you. Thanks for listening, Lizzie x

My podcast ‘How to Curate Your Life – Work Life Balance for the Creative Entrepreneur’ is back with its fourth season and it feels great to be back recording for you. I have several interview episodes with amazing women ‘in the can’ that I’m so looking forward to sharing with you.

But this first episode is a solo show. You may have heard my bonus ‘lockdown’ episode speaking about how I’ve been up-levelling my mindset during lockdown and I’ve so much more to share with you.

This episode we are talking Values. After the bonus episode (check out the show notes for the link if you’ve not heard it yet) I received more requests then ever to dive deeper into what I mean by ‘Values’, why it’s worth having them, how to work out what yours are and how to go about living by them. So in this episode we get right into that. I also catch you up on how my Money Mindset journey is going, the break throughs I’ve had so far and what I’m working on currently to continue to work towards financial abundance.
