#8 Yogis-In-Business | The Business in a Box.

An enterpreneur’s dream come true?

Featuring conscious skin care tips from Tropic Ambassador, Sam Cunningham. 

How’s this sound? Be your own boss, with a product or service you passionately believe in. You get to work your own hours, be supported by positive, uplifting people. And earn a great income on your own terms?

A tad far-fetched? Too good to be true?

That’s what we’ll be exploring in this week’s podcast with guest, Sam Cunningham, who told me it’s not only possible, it’s actually her dream come true. And it could be yours maybe?

Now Sam knows her stuff. She’s quite frankly no stranger to running a business. At 24 and newly-wed, she went all in with her husband as a Specsavers franchisee. But 20 years on, and that business successfully sold on – she’s begun following a new entrepreneurial passion. She’s an ambassador for the natural cruelty-free skin care range that I came across just recently, called Tropic.

Tropic Ambassador Sam Cunningham

Today’s podcast takes us on Sam’s self-made journey and she introduces us to a Social Selling Business Platform that is said to be empowering women all over the country to start their own business.

Keep listening to hear all about social selling, why and how to be more conscious when it comes to your skin care routine and learn more about the products that fired up Lord Alan Sugar enough to invest in the beauty business.

This one is indulgent…go on pamper yourself with a podcast…
