102: Nicholas Jemetta: Career advice from The Fancy Dress Dad
Show Notes

Pitching yourself for a new job is never easy. 
Pitching yourself when you live with anxiety, is harder. 
What's even harder? 
Pitching yourself to the BBC when you have a stutter. Or doing multiple professional speaking gigs, with that stutter.
The most courageous of all? 
Dressing up in a fancy dress costume (think skeleton onesie!) and showing up to a work meeting on Zoom. And then again as Darth Vader. Then again as Minnie Mouse.

Why on earth would anyone do that?? Listen to the episode to find out.

For my next guest, I want you to google the term ‘fancy dress dad’. Do it!
