In 2008, my guest this week Ed Evarts was unexpectedly laid off from his job as a senior HR director at records management giant Iron Mountain.
In the middle of a recession and with no network outside his former employer, he set about building his own coaching practice Excellius. It’s now thriving and Ed tells us how he made it happen.
Often my pods can get a bit philosophical, but this one is packed with practical advice, whether you’re building your career within a proper job or you’re out there on your own.

We talk:
– 3 keys to psychological safety
– Positive relations with your boss
– Raising your visibility
– Effective networking
– Play the hand you’ve been dealt

To your humanity,
Richard
