This week’s guests are Helen Hill and Martine Bolton.
Helen is a self-employed Digital Learning and Content Designer at Unlikely Genius Ltd.
Unlikely Genius is based on the principles of ensuring the user comes first, communicating in plain language and making content available to all, living by the mantra ‘The content you make is not for you’. She works as a contractor for eLearning agencies in the UK and Europe, plus has ongoing projects with the NHS, charities and a number of private sector clients in industries from health, to technology and media.
Her first self-help business book, Falling off the Ladder, is out in October 2021. Helping people make the mindset shit from employment and the corporate ladder to thrive in self-employment.
Helen lives in semi-rural West Yorkshire with the long-suffering Graham, and two extremely fluffy, diva rabbits Tiffin and Strudel.
