Another season of inspirational business podcast launches
Bermuda’s entrepreneurs have been featured alongside business founders from around the world in a podcast designed and hosted by two Bermudian women.
The podcast, Resilient Entrepreneurs, aims to inspire and uplift business owners at any stage of business growth.
Vicki Abraham and Laura Bell, of Two Four One Branding, produced the podcast to meet a need in the community.
Ms Bell said: “So many business owners that we meet say that they feel like they’re alone and it’s not unusual for people to second-guess themselves, especially solopreneurs in the early stage of their business. We thought it would help people to hear from other successful entrepreneurs to know that they had similar feelings, and to hear what they did to strengthen their resilience.”
The next season kicks off with celebrity make-up artist Christina Flach, owner of Pretty Girl Make-up, who also founded charities for Sepsis Awareness, stemming from a personal tragedy.
“When we interview guests we focus on resilience because we believe that’s what keeps a small business alive,” Ms Bell said. “It’s the difference between building and growing, or quitting. We all have stories to tell about our entrepreneurial journey and we can all learn from each other. It’s our hope that if just one person feels more encouraged, less alone and keeps going, then this podcast did what we intended.”
The first season of Resilient Entrepreneurs showcased ten Bermuda business owners and eight from other countries.
Rose Zuill, cofounder of DavidRose Studio, a luxury jewellery brand, was one of the local entrepreneurs included.
In episode three, Ms Zuill spoke about how her business navigated the pandemic and shared memories from a decade ago when DavidRose first started.
“The heaviest decision was when to quit my full-time job that paid me quite well and what to do about health insurance,” she said. “I had to ask myself, ‘Is this the plunge you’re willing to take?’”
Other local entrepreneurs featured were: Kidist “Pinky” Emery, of Salon Pink; Coral Wells, founder of education charity ConnecTech; Michelle Viera, of Soltrino & Fluid Fitness; Giles Belfrage, of Accountancy Tamer; Sandra DeSilva, of Nova Ltd; Michelle White, of Executemps Bda; and Nico Bean, a 14-year-old artist and Instagram success.
This is the second podcast from Two Four One. Their first was Level Up Your Marketing, released in 2019. Both series are available on Apple, Google, Spotify and other popular podcast apps, and can be found on their website, www.twofouronetraining.com
