Podcast - Your Time with James Sweetman

When I listen to podcasts I love to get tips and insights that I can apply in my own life and work and hopefully be entertained too.

This is my intention with my podcast where every Wednesday I share ideas, insights and practical tools to assist and maybe even inspire you to live the fullest, truest expression of yourself.

I’m also joined by guests, thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, experts, people who have turned their passion into their profession, overcome challenges or simply discovered ways to live more authentically.

Personally, I love these episodes because I get to learn as well, and I like nothing better than an uplifting chat with a friend, with a cup of tea to hand.

Producing the weekly episodes is a real labour of love for me. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode. ‘Your Time with James Sweetman’ is available on all main platforms (live on iTunes for Apple users and Podbean, Spotify and Stitcher for Android users).
