Ditch The Hustle podcast
Welcome to the Ditch The Hustle podcast hosted by Amanda Rootsey, Nicola Newman and Naomi Arnold.
We are business coaches and co-founders of the Gentle Business Mastermind, a global year-long experience for kind-hearted entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, makers of beautiful things, creatives, coaches, teachers, writers and small business owners.
Through the Gentle Business Mastermind and this podcast, we’ve supported thousands of people to play and explore what gentle business looks like for them. To us, gentle business is a ‘choose your own adventure’ rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach and we can’t wait to go on this adventure with you.
Please find our Ditch The Hustle podcast episodes for your enjoyment below.

All three share practical examples of how gentle working weeks have shifted over time, plus Naomi shares how motherhood and having a 9 to 5 government job has presented opportunities and challenges for working gently. Mandy, Nai and Nic discuss their relationships with working weekends and some of the specific systems, operations and tools they use to make life and business gentler.read more
