Your website plays a crucial role in the public image of your business. So if you're not happy with the way it looks, you can end up feeling the same way you do when you're carrying a few extra pounds or turn up to an event in completely the wrong outfit - like you want to hide away and not talk to anyone.
I hear far too many business owners saying they can't pursue new business opportunities (like pitching story ideas to journalists, for example) until they have a new site.
But should you let 'website shame' hold you back in your business? Absolutely not and in this podcast interview with Laura Husson, I explore why...
