Podcast Ep 136: An Ounce of Courage Every Day

Nicola has flown all the way to Brisbane, despite the laptop ban (which turned out not to affect her outward journey) and my advice LOL. She’s speaking this coming weekend for Neil Asher at his Aussie Entrepreneurs event as is fellow Brit Matt Duggan who we often mention on the podcast.
