The Beauty of Truth podcast is designed to speak about the beautiful and ugly truths that live within the industries many of us work in today, and to discuss the hardships we face as a generation and how we can overcome them. At the end of each episode, I will ask my guest to reveal one wholehearted honest truth that they have never revealed before about their industry or themselves, it may be a story that horrifies the nation, a change they want to see happen, an opinion that they have never publicly stated, something that gives us the listener some realness. A beautiful truth.

1:32:12This week's guest is.... ME! I have been debating doing a solo episode sometime now, but my worry was always it sounding narcissistic, a bit of a wanker to be honest but in saying that some people join this community at other different stages and may not know who I am or where I started this podcast so I thought now is a good time to give an honest insight into my life so you know who you are listening to.
