Today on the podcast, I’m talking to Victoria Wood, founder of Greener Beauty and Greener Salons about why she left her high-stress job within the corporate IT sector to start her own business. We discuss the need for women to acknowledge the need for kindness and compassion in their lives, not only in how we act towards others but in how we care for ourselves. A passionate vegan, Victoria also shares how we can make small changes to our lifestyle to reduce our environmental impact and care for the world around us.

International Women’s Day Insight:

“It is so important to give ourselves time and space to embrace our feminine energy.” - Victoria Wood

It is essential for women to prioritise time for themselves and embrace their feminine energy, and treat themselves with kindness and compassion. Deciding to leave a corporate masculine role that doesn’t work for you anymore often allows you to develop yourself more compassionately and authentically.
