Business Greenhouse Podcast with Emmie Faust

The Business Greenhouse Podcast with Emmie Faust is a podcast for entrepreneurs and founders that want to grow a thriving business. If you care about your customers, staff, suppliers, the planet, your shareholders and looking after yourself then this is the podcast for you.

Yes, it’s about generating a profit, but I believe it’s also about having fun, making a positive impact, being efficient with time and money and genuinely caring about everyone that your company impacts.

I’ll be sharing tips, strategies and advice that I have learnt over the last 20 years setting up, scaling and successfully selling businesses. And what I have learnt from working as a business growth and marketing consultant with businesses of all sizes, from soloprenuers to big corporates.

You can listen on all podcasting platforms, or here on my site.
