Here’s Jodie’s TEDx talk: creating useful people. Delivered in May 2017 at TEDx Aston University:


Writing about entrepreneurship

Jodie contributes articles for Forbes on the topic of entrepreneurship, covering happiness, lifestyle and how to run a business without it running you. The articles have been read hundreds of thousands of times. Jodie’s book, Stop Acting Like You’re Going To Live Forever, and accompanying guided journal, were written for entrepreneurs who think differently, or want to.

Inspiring entrepreneurship

Jodie co-created the Clever Tykes storybooks and resources, which introduce children ages 6-9 to positive entrepreneurial role models and inspire the behaviour associated with entrepreneurship. The books have sold over 100,000 copies and are read in every UK primary school. Read more about the storybooks here.
