Just Meee Podcasts
We’re all celebrities in our own worlds. ‘Just Meee’ celebrates the extraordinary in everyday people who have managed to tough it out and be amazing. We hear from mums, dads, daughters and sons on how they’ve made it, and make it, through the hazards and highlights of this thing we call life. It’s an honour to hear from them and we hope you enjoy their journeys…
#4 Amy Frost
Amy Frost is stepmum to Archie, an incredible 7 year old!. Together they turned a home-learning exercise into a business!. Amy’s career started as a radio presenter and in 2014 morphed into podcasting. Her passion for animals and horses in particular led to the creation of the most listened to Equestrian Podcast in the UK, HorseHour!.
In 2018 Amy set up an equestrian retirement yard for injured and retired horses in the New Forest, and Archie’s love for caring for animals began when he was just 3. Mark (Archie’s Dad), Amy and Archie made frequent visits to local farms to learn about the animals. As a family it was always about caring for nature.
Now, in a world where the only certainty is uncertainty, Mark, Amy and Archie have created an online farm shop serving the community. What’s amazing is that it came from a learning exercise on how to look after chickens for a home-schooling project!
They hope that Archie’s Produce will help inspire others to think creatively when learning.
#5 Jan Cavelle
Jan is an author, writer and speaker. But that doesn’t go anywhere near explaining what she really is. Jan is amazing, determined, resourceful, bloodyminded (her words) and pragmatic. A true entrepreneur at heart and a great believer in the part entrepreneurs play in any economy.
Jan started her own furniture business as a single Mum from a cupboard under the stairs, knowing next to nothing about business. But, having the tenacity to make it work in order to survive she battled and thrived.
What I love about Jan is her ability to find joy in writing about her experiences and sharing her knowledge with so many.
Her new book 'Scale For Success’ will be published on the 4th February 2021!
#6 Fay Stephenson
Fay Stephenson is a rare find. Rare in that she’s willing to put her anxiety and mental health issues aside to help and do well for others. This session took 7 goes to make it happen as anxiety and a trip to the dentist got the better of Fay. It was well worth all the waiting to hear from a truly genuine person what lessons she’s learning and how she helps others.
Mother of 3 boys, blog writer (Felicity Finds) and never one to be ‘normal’ hear how Fay talks honestly, openly and with a little bit of humour about her life and the mistakes she’s made. And how she hopes her honesty will help others realise that we are all in the same boat.
This session is a real joy and a celebration of why one's limitations are real, but also how they can be overcome.
#7 Dafydd Hardy
I’ve known Dafydd for many years and every time I talk or see him he’s always lovely. And I don’t mean lovely in a disparaging way but in a truly genuine, kind and honest way. He really is one of the most genuine, kind and honest people I’ve ever met. His values are core to what makes him so curious, insightful and wise about the world around him.
Being an estate agent has its challenges and is hardly the most trusted profession in business, but Dafydd is as genuine as it gets. Hear why he’s still curious and what he would like to pass on and leave as his legacy.
A true gentleman and a pleasure to share some air time with.
#3 Stephen Wheatley
Stephen is a 65 year old Londoner. Married for 37 years to Barbara, with three grown up children and three grand children. He started out in retail selling fish fingers! And went on to selling electronics, before ending up in marketing. He was asked to join a start up in the early 90s and became an entrepreneur overnight. 30 years later he’s started and built three businesses.
He co-founded HearAngel/LimitEar, a company developing software to help us look after our hearing while wearing headphones. Think of it like a Fitbit for your ears.
He has many other interests too…like helping others realise their potential and dreams through coaching and mentoring. And apart from his family he’s Chair of Fundraising for the Guild of Entrepreneurs, a mad keen cyclist…a downhill skier…and a volunteer crewman at Tower RNLI on the Thames.
Listening to Stephen’s journey is a joy!
#2 Vicki Wusche
Vicki Wusche started investing in property 2008 and has been named in The Telegraph’s top UK’s 25 most influential people in property. She is an inspiring speaker and author of five books including finalist in the Business Book Awards in March 2020. A regular on podcasts across Europe, America and Canada as well as the UK, Vicki will surprise you with her take on property, finance and the next decade.
Since first recognising property as the best strategy to create her financial security, Vicki has shied away from the “get rich” gurus and their flash cars and shiny shoes. Many of her talks have been said to be straight talking and brutally honest. Vicki would tell you that being successful in any business, especially property investment takes commitment and hard work. All business success is based on a good understanding of the market and an even better understanding of the maths involved.
