Welcome back to Small Business Snippets, the podcast from SmallBusiness.co.uk
In this episode, Anna Jordan chats to Lara Khalaf, a Syrian-born personal coach, executive coach and leadership trainer who works exclusively with women. She talks about her experiences of coming to the UK in her mid-twenties all the way through to launching her own business.
Learn about her struggles in learning the language, dealing with stereotypes and why it’s not confidence that you really need to conquer your business goals.
