This week I’m joined by Lauren Windebank, Founder of Roma Black.

She started working in recruitment 8 years ago, building her career as a consultant before Co-Founding Roma Black in 2018. Shortly after, Lauren became a solo Founder and had to manage building a business alone with two young children.

It was great to sit down with him and talk about her experiences as a business owner – this episode gets into the gritty importance of starting up with the right people, how to be a model leader and also keep a successful business thriving!
