#50 Nicholla Henderson Hall. Host & Producer of The Learning Curve Podcast. 'We All Have Our
Universal Challenges Which We Work On Using Our Cultural, Family & Social Influences.'
The Learning Curve Podcast - THE Podcast for Women Entrepreneurs in the Middle East and North Africa Region: So for this milestone interview (50th episode) I decided I would take the microphone and just hit record. I've never done a solo broadcast so the anticipation was quite high. I now know how it felt to be a guest on the show. I decided the best way to do this was to answer the same questions I ask my guests and use that as a catalyst for this solo conversation. So when the energy felt right and my thoughts were clear (not crystal clear ) but strong enough to take me through a solo broadcast then I went for it. This is my down to earth, honest and open look at the entrepreneurial journey from my prospective.
Inside This Episode
Nicholla shares her expat journey and how she arrived at this destination of doing her own podcast show. She then dives into the questions she would ask her guests and answers the questions. This is quite an insightful episode into Nicholla's thinking and her take on how she sees things and what she has learnt from listening to the many ladies she has interviewed and how she will continue to built on this podcast. This was nicholla's first solo podcast. Just her and the microphone and seeing where it would go. She didn't want to plan this episode, she just wanted to speak and let the conversation flow. Nicholla hopes you reasonate with some of the points she makes along the way.
