How to recession proof your mindset

In this episode of The Bookkeepers' Podcast, Zoe Whitman was joined by Abigail Rogers to talk about how we can be more mindful about our thoughts and beliefs about the recession. There's a huge amount of doom and gloom on the news and as number people it's easy to get hyper focussed.
