Coping with isolation

In this video I talk with prolific writer & small business expert, Andrew Griffiths. He shares tips to handle the dreaded feeling of isolation that can permeate our work. Using experiences from the big end of town, Andrew shares some practical advice.


From creating a meaningful picture of an inspiring future, to maintaining a good work/life balance and securing the support of a confidante, Andrew brings variety and innovation to this problem that sees so many soloists paralysed into inaction.

Many of you will recognise Andrew Griffiths as the opening keynote speaker from 2009’s Flying Solo LIVE!
