Season 4 – Episode 11: Meet Jackie Mulligan and ShopAppy!

Jackie Mulligan champion events in the North, speaker and founder of her own digital start-up ShopAppy.com shares her story and answers listeners letters. ShopAppy was founded by Jackie Mulligan, who loves shopping in her home town of Saltaire. She and many of her friends were worried about seeing many of the great local shops struggling because of the increasing competition from supermarkets and online shopping giants. She even saw some shops closing to become online sellers – leaving vacant shops in the town. Jackie explains “I realised how happy it made me feel to have these lovely shops so close by, and how enjoyable it was to shop locally where you could speak to shopkeepers about the products because they had chosen them and they had bought them. I also noticed that in the local shops, residents talked to each other, shopping local just makes us all feel more connected and happy. I called it feeling ‘shopappy’ because I am a cockney and always drop my H’s”

She also met lots of people who cared a lot about shopping local, but when they got home from work the shops were closed.

Jackie set about creating ShopAppy. Jackie is delighted that it is launched, she says “ShopAppy will give every independent in every local town a 24-hour shop window, doesn’t take commission on sales and encourages shoppers to look at what amazing things are on their doorstep. It is great to have convenience but it is also great when you feel good about where you shop. That’s what might make us all shopappy!”

Season 4 – Episode 07: A Special and Different Festival Experience – Pop-Up Hotel!

Owner and Founder – The Pop-Up Hotel – Mark Sorrell talks to Jason Allan Scott on the show.

It’s really hard to find a really special and different festival experience.

‘But that’s just what the Pop Up Hotel provides to its new and returning guests – all the atmosphere of staying under canvas with the comfort and luxury of a boutique hotel.

‘When you return to the Pop Up Hotel or Motel site, tired and muddy, you can use the hot showers before visiting the pop-up restaurant or street-food area.’

We’re still not sure quite how a ‘street food area’ is that different from ‘street food in an area with a lot of food vans’ except the price-tag but the atmosphere, he says, is different:

‘You can sit out and soak up the calming atmosphere before retiring to your chosen accommodation,’ he says.

‘Having woken fully refreshed, you’ll be ready for whatever the day holds.’

Season 4 – Episode 05: Sever The Mental Connection Between Time and Work

Tim Ferris and Jason Scott on the 4-Hour Workweek, 10 years ago #1 New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss, taught the world how to escape the 9-5, live anywhere, and join the new rich. Jason read the book on his honeymoon in 2015 and on this episode he talks to his wife about how the 4-Hour Workweek changed his business and his life. To paraphrase Tim, “You don’t want a million dollars, you want the lifestyle you think having a million dollars will get you. Jason now has this lifestyle getting to speak all over the world, write books, travel and help others make money and lose fat. I was working 60-80 hour weeks in events when I read The 4-Hour Workweek. Talk about a paradigm shift. Tim taught me to sever the mental connection between time and work. Once I started looking for ways to make money without spending my time–automating the process, I am proud to say that I am now able to make money with minimal time on my part. SPOILER ALERT! I made it down to just four hours per week!!
