I am fifteen minutes late for our interview, in a coffee shop that this blasted machine swears blind is just on this corner. It isn’t.  Continue reading Interview with Anne-Marie Imafidon, Stemettes: “Not pink, just cool!”

Interview with Charlie Osmond, CEO and Founder of Triptease, CEO of the Week

The internet is a wonderful thing, but it is often a very ugly, and very useless thing.  Luckily, to cheer ourselves up, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the bits of the internet that are brilliant, and beautiful, and useful- to give you alternatives to the grim world out there.
