I am so beyond excited to bring you my first interview for the DIY Small Business podcast with the wonderful Elinor Predota! Elinor was also on the Daydreaming Wolves podcast and has such beautiful insights to share about what it means to build businesses that are aligned with our values. Here is what we talked about:
- Building a small business against and beyond capitalism
- Elinor’s background of working in cooperatives
- The emotional labour involved in re-thinking our relationship to power and leadership
- Ways of building sustainable and regenerative communities and how that is related to how we trade with each other
- Personal freedom and collective liberation
- Cycles and transformations in business instead of constant growth
Elinor supports people who long to make action for social justice an everyday part of their life and work, but who feel stuck, confused, or overwhelmed, to build their inner resources of resilience, awareness of self, society and environment, and confidence.
Elinor offers one to one, group and DIY programmes which are grounded in a long and wide-ranging background in activism, community development, spiritual counselling, ritual work, storytelling, and facilitation of learning. Elinor’s work is rooted in the magic of creativity, of relating across difference, and of becoming alive to all that is present, within and without us, here and now.

:: About me and the DIY Small Business podcast ::
I am a web designer, small business mentor and tech fairy who helps people start and run small businesses that are fun to work in and make enough money for things that matter.
The DIY Business Podcast is supporting people in creating regenerative, sustainable and feminist businesses that redefine success and center community through interviews with like minded folk, how to guides and exploratory shares.
I am not on social media anymore because I want to focus on creating indy media like my podcasts, compare myself less and spent little time on my phone. This means I have more energy to nurture my communities and make cool things for you!
