‘Resilient Entrepreneurs’ Season 2 released

Bermuda’s entrepreneurs are profiled alongside entrepreneurs from around the world in the Resilient Entrepreneurs with Two Four One podcast, created and hosted by two Bermudian women. The second season is now available.

A spokesperson said: “The Resilient Entrepreneurs with Two Four One podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google to inspire and empower business owners at every stage of business growth.

“Entrepreneurial duo Vicki Abraham and Laura Bell produced the podcast to fill a need in the community.”

Ms Bell said: “So many business owners we meet say they feel lonely and it’s not uncommon for people to question themselves, especially solopreneurs in the early stages of their business. We thought it would help people to hear from other successful entrepreneurs, to know that they had similar feelings and to hear what they did to build their resilience.”

The spokesperson said: “Season 1 of Resilient Entrepreneurs featured ten business owners from Bermuda and eight from other countries including Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. Local entrepreneurs included Rose Zuill, co-founder of DavidRose Studio, a leading luxury jewelry brand.

“Ms. Zuill spoke about how her company was managing the pandemic and shared memories from a decade ago when DavidRose started.”

Ms Zuill said: “The hardest decision was when to leave my full-time job, which paid me fairly well, and what to do with health insurance. I had to ask myself, “Is this the leap you’re ready to take?” You need to sit down and be honest with yourself and ask yourself, is your business profitable? do you make money Can you cover your overheads, cover all of your living expenses, and pay yourself a little? [Episode 03].

We all have stories to tell about our entrepreneurial journey and we can all learn from each other. We hope that if just one person feels encouraged and less alone and keeps going, this podcast has done what we intended.”
