Roshan James, Business Consultant & Poet // Two Time Published Canadian Poet

Episode #8

We’ve rebranded!

This podcast used to be called ‘The Maker’s Collective Podcast’ and is now called ‘The Work Different, Live Different Podcast by The Maker’s Collective’. You’ll notice that we’ve updated the look and feel along with the name, which will appear across all of our episodes, old and new.

In this episode of the Maker’s Co Podcast you’ll meet Roshan, a communications business consultant turned poet, who chose to take space from her corporate work to explore writing and publishing works of poetry to feed her creative soul. This one is really about listening to your intuition, the highs and lows of creating and running a business, and the realization that careers are living, breathing things that ebb and flow. We love this woman and everything she represents, and we’re sure you will too!
