In this week's Small Business Sessions, we're joined by podcaster and blogger Sarah Akwisombe. Sarah started her interior design blog on the side while working at a tech start-up. The blog grew and she decided to take it full time.

She's since become an influencer in the interior design world and worked with major brands, including Dulux. Sarah now also runs No Bull Business School, which delivers "straight-up courses to help women build a kick-ass business and brand", and hosts the No Bull Business Women podcast.

I'm based in Bristol where I run and host regular events with the local small business community and have strong connections to major business organisations in the south west region. In total, I've hosted over 50 events; from intimate meet-ups to conferences with an audience of hundreds including events for international brands like Facebook and Xero. I'm also a big fan of podcasts having hosted Enterprise Nation's Small Business Sessions as well as lots of online events including Facebook Live interviews, webinars and three live web chats from inside 10 Downing Street.
