corporate environment and how she balances being a mother and a wife with running her own business.

She shares the challenges of acknowledging what we're good at and recognising when to outsource to those who are good at it!

We also talk about how running your own business can be a lonely place and how Sam has found support to alleviate that and the part networking has played in it. She shares her surprise at how generous people can be with information and a desire to support others - even if in the same business.

We talk about how she manages being married, girls who swim competitively and making the most of the windows of time you have when you have them.
