    S2 E9 - The business behind show business with Kerry Ellis, Broadway and West End Star

    59:06

    Kerry Ellis. Broadway and West End Star, Singer, Actress, Mother of two and a loving wife. But who is behind the brand of Kerry Ellis, and what is life really like as a West End star, and a Mother, especially during lockdown? Kerry has fast become recognised as the leading lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway. She was the first British Elphaba in the West End smash, Wicked, for which Kerry won the 2008 Whatsonstage.com Award for ‘Best Takeover in a Role’. She then immediately transferred to Broadway and played Elphaba at the Gershwin Theater for 6 months, where she won the Broadway.com Audience Award for Favourite Female Breakthrough Performance, before returning to London for 6 months in 2009. Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in Oliver! at Drury lane, Eliza Doolittle My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon and Fantine in Les Miserables. I absolutely LOVED this interview. Kerry had an incredible energy, it was utterly contagious, and I so appreciated her taking the time to speak to us. We talked in depth about: - Kerry's journey to now - The reality of lockdown for a performer - The life of a performing Mum - Nerves and anxiety - Behind the scenes of show business  - How she met her husband I could have talked to her for HOURS! You can find Kerry at: www.kerryellis.com. @kerryellis79 instagram @kerryjaneeellis1 twitter Kerry also has her own podcast "Keep Calm and Kerry On" which has some fantastic interviews - you definitely need to give it a listen! Please let me know how this podcast landed for you, and your key takeaways. It created a real joy, and a series of lightbulb moments for me, and I think it's so rare to get a true window into the life of an extremely talented woman in show business.  Thank you Kerry, I can't wait to chat again soon.

    S2 E8 - Property Investment Series: Holiday Lets - All you need to know!

    23:06

    In this episode of The Mortgage Mum Podcast we talk about holiday lets, and why they have become an increasingly popular investment. With the rise of UK staycations, and people rediscovering the beauty of Britain, it is no surprise that more people want to invest in holiday lets. For one, the ROI (Return on Investment) is interesting! When you compare to a buy to let property, you can potentially earn the same rent in one week with a short term let as you can in one month with a buy to let property. In this episode, we talk about: - What is a holiday let? - How does affordability work in a holiday let mortgage? - How much deposit do I need? - What are the pros and cons? - How does the ROI compare to a buy to let property? - How easy is it to get a mortgage for a holiday let? And we share some details about one of our Mortgage Mum team - Colleen Sykes - who owns her own STUNNING cottage in Corfe Castle as a holiday let investment. I share her insight to why she chose this form of investment, and the pros and cons. PLEASE check out Colleen's stunning house here - Acorns - https://www.classic.co.uk/holiday-cottage/desc-4828.html. I know I'll be booking to stay there as soon as I can!!!! I am super impressed with Colleen's investment here, as well as her stance on it, and I can't wait to see it unfold. I'm sure it will be a huge success. As always, we aim to break difficult topics into easy conversations, so we hope you got a lot from this episode.

    S2 E7 - Why you need a Will, with special guest Claire Earwaker dos Reis

    40:46

    In this episode, I interview Claire Earwaker dos Reis, a will writer and Estate Planner from Expression Wills. Claire and I had a really open chat about her journey to will writing, and her story was brave and beautiful.  We also talked about those all important questions that all our listeners need to know: What is a will?  Who needs a will, when do you need to think about getting one?  What happens to my estate if I don't have a will? What are the reasons for having a will? Wills aren’t regulated, what does this mean? Where should I store my will?  What’s the cost of having a will written? What are the dangers of writing my own will?  How do I go about arranging a will? Claire says - "End of life planning is not the most sexy or glamorous of subjects, but it is such an important, but often neglected task. My passion is to create a safe space for people to explore their options and voice their concerns without being pushed into making decisions. Education comes first in providing people with the right knowledge so that hold the power to make their own decisions about what is right for them and their family without the pressure of a “quick sale”. I am also passionate about challenging the stereotypes typically associated with the industry and to bring will writing back in to the 21st century."

    S2 E5 - Exclusive tips from an Estate Agent - How to make offers on property and more, with special guest Rachel Ollington

    50:50

    In this episode, I interview Rachel Ollington, an Estate Agent and working Mum who is breaking the moulds of her industry. Rachel and I spoke openly about her journey to Estate Agency, from leaving school to launching her own Estate Agency practice, and how hard it can be to be a Mum who wants to be there for her children while building her own business. We also talk about Rachel's passion for first time buyers, and why her own teenagers and daughter has driven her to educate more on this topic! Rachel's energy is contagious and she is SO easy to talk to! I'm sure you'll get so many valuable insights and tips from this episode, and I am also sure we will have Rachel back as she was such a great guest! Rachel and I talk about those all important questions that our listeners need to know when BUYING and MAKING OFFERS on property: Should I bid under asking price? How do I know what to offer? Do I have to play the game, or can I be honest about my budget? Is the Estate Agent working for the buyer or the seller? Are property prices going up? What is it like to be an Estate Agent? Is the market still strong? Rachel says "With over 23 years experience working within the property industry for independent, corporate and online estate agencies as well as working with property investors and qualifying as a mortgage broker, I have recently become a mumprenuer starting my own personal estate agency business to try and steer the service away from targets, figures and KPI's and make the process about the people and their properties. With my eldest daughter coming up to 20, I have a huge passion now more than ever for helping first time buyers get on the property ladder by giving them education and tools they need to maybe think outside the box to make that happen."
