For the last episode of 2021 I’m keen to bring you a podcast that embraces change. In what’s been a difficult year with uncertain times ahead, you maybe approaching the New Year with momentum towards a change towards something new. Great! But what for those fearful of change? Fearful of what change could bring. Could it be this that’s holding you back from all the possibilities change could give you going forward.

For todays guest, Sheila Jackson, change is something she has always fully embraced. It’s been this approach that led to her former role as Director of Education and Events at Wella Professionals. And in this conversation she will share that journey that started out as a 13 year old schoolgirl, and what this high profile position role at Wella Professionals entailed. This conversation will also be sprinkled with some wise words on why we need to be carful on how we are marketing ourselves on social media.

But the big cornerstone to what we cover is the changes Sheila has managed in her life, both professionally and personally.

So for those of you looking to embracing change in 2022, there’s enough in Sheila’s words today that will give the motivation to go for it yourself. So as we sign out for 2021, I hope this episode helps you embrace the changes the will bring you all the joy and success your dream of.
