Thanks so much to Cheshire journalist Diane Cooke and whirlwind Jacqueline Hughes-Lundy for asking me to be part of their new website The Best Life Project.
The idea for their super positive new lifestyle website developed during the initial 2020 Lockdown when people began to take stock of their lives and changing priorities. Many decided to learn new skills, reconnect with friends and family, reassess their lifestyles or become more supportive of their community. In other words, they decided to improve the quality of their lives. I did this too, which was why Diane got in touch and we chatted about my Lockdown experience.
They aim, through their interviews and articles to entertain, enhance and educate readers, whilst building a sustainable business that will look to support, encourage, and ultimately employ the next generation of creatives.
Here’s the interview I did with Diane, I hope you enjoy reading it!
