074: James Golden – Learning from our mistakes…

On this week’s episode I am re-interviewing James Golden.

James was one of our first ever interviewees and featured in one of our first episodes – number 14!

After starting his business in 2010, he’s had an incredible journey that included getting a bank grant and later hitting rock bottom, overcoming a cancer diagnosis when he was 26, and building his company into a profitable business that employs 10 staff and has recently raised funds for growth through a crowdfunding campaign.

James is fellow Parentpreneur, living with his wife, two daughters (aged 6 and 2) and his son who is 7 months old.

14 months on from his original interview a lot has happened in that time. James has now parted ways with his business, is back to being a one-man band and now involved in a retreat company called YOLO Retreats.

We catch up to find out what’s new and next for James.
