Season 1, Episode 5: Show Up and Be Heard

Today’s episode of the podcast is an interview with the wonderful Ange Lyons.

In this episode we explore our thoughts on networking, time management, and the tools that keep our businesses organised.

BOSS THINGS YOU’LL LEARN IF YOU TUNE IN:

  1. The systems we use to stay organised in business
  2. The community groups that we wouldn’t be without
  3. The Customer Relationship Management tool Ange has fallen in love with

Ange is a British-born East Londoner, with West Indian parents from the Windrush generation.

She studied product design at Central Saint Martins and began her design career in graphic design over 20 years ago, and founded her business Lyons Creative 12 years ago.

She offers graphic design services to multiple industries, which include corporates – insurance and finance, publishing houses, charities and freelancers.

This ensures she has a variety of work and keeps her skillset diverse. She is also the creative lead of Freelancer Magazine and loves every minute of it.

If you enjoyed this episode or found it useful, then I would really appreciate if you could take just a few minutes to give it a review on whatever platform you are listening on – because every one I get really does make me do a little squeal and a happy dance!
