Welcome to the first episode of the Ditch the Hustle podcast. In this episode we (Amanda, Nicola and Naomi) introduce ourselves a little bit and explore what ditching the hustle actually means.

What does ‘ditch the hustle’ look and feel like to you? It’s a big question, and the answer is different for each person.

It also changes over time. In this episode we explore how our businesses have personally evolved over the years and how the ways we ditch the hustle have changed along with that.

We hope you enjoy it.
