Today I’m joined by former actress turned entrepreneur Charlie Day, co-founder of the franchise business Sounds Right Phonics Classes For Kids.
Sounds Right Phonics has grown from just a few classes a week to now over 40 franchises in the UK and with plans to take the business overseas, Charlie is INCREDIBLY busy. But she and her sister were always keen to ensure that their work fit around their lives as parents, and this led to their ethos and passion for empowering other women and creating flexible working opportunities for Mums.
In this candid interview, Charlie shares the tips she’s learned about being more productive including how to plan in self-care, goal-setting, time management and overcoming the fears we all have as women in business, even though she’s not naturally an organised person herself. She also talks about the importance of having a personal support community and how her training as an actress helps her deal with ‘performing’ as an entrepreneur.
And full disclosure, I have to apologise for the few ‘bongs’ you’ll hear from Charlie’s notifications - she’s a busy lady for sure!
Charlie was such fun to interview and I have to mention up front her that she is a HUGE fan of Rachel Hollis so a big shout out to her and I will put all the links that Charlie and I mention in the show notes for this episode at michellereevescoaching.com/listen
