It's time for the last episode in the current series of the Small Business Sessions podcast with Xero.

Every week Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones speaks to entrepreneurs and experts about starting and growing a successful business.

This week, Giles Williams, co-founder of Urban Massage, discusses the inspirational story of his on-demand massage booking platform.

In "recovery mode" after selling his first business, Giles and his co-founder recognised that "you can grab a cab and order food and drink...at the touch of a button. But you can't order the stuff you really need like wellness services."

Urban Massage was born.

Following a degree in Law and Japanese, Emma joined international accounting firm Arthur Andersen, where she worked in London, Leeds and Manchester offices and set up the firm's Inward Investment practice that attracted overseas companies to locate in the UK. In 2000, bitten by the dot.com bug, Emma left the firm to start her first business, Techlocate. After 15 months, the company was successfully sold to Tenon plc. The experience of starting, growing and selling a business from a home base gave Emma the idea for Enterprise Nation which was launched in 2006 as the home business website. The company has since expanded to become a small business membership community of over 75,000 people who benefit from events and support: online and in person. Enterprise Nation also presents a campaigning voice to government and the media on behalf of its members. In 2021, Emma was awarded a CBE for services to small businesses and entrepreneurs.
