Episode 82: 12th September 2019

Sustainability, Wave Accounting, Jo Fairley and The Bottom Line all feature this week and you know what that means…another reason to have chocolate on our webpage :-).

The three pillars of sustainability focus on economic, environmental and social and despite the term being used for many years now, do we actually know what it means in terms of business? This week we take a look at the components, the business benefits and what can be done on even the smallest of scales to make a difference. If you are looking for inspiration take a look at Harvard Business School Online for guidance on strategy and Google the term Repair Cafe to see what difference small operations can make. You might find some useful information at The Carbon Trust.  

In other news we take a brief look at The Rose Review and what insights it delivers with regard to female entrepreneurs.

This week Tracy discovers a finance app call Wave Accounting which, it appears can actually be used free of charge with no hidden extras while Heather flags up The Bottom Line a BBC Radio 4 podcast (also available on iplayer), which covers a whole raft of business discussions in bite sized chunks.

Talking of chocolate…finally we mention the sweet smell of success enjoyed by Jo Fairley, co founder of Green and Blacks Chocolate and The Perfume Society, former friend of the late Paula Yates and ‘accidental’ serial entrepreneur who has gone on to bigger and better things.
