Podcast with Linda Mellor
Linda Mellor is a longstanding Scottish countryside and wildlife photographer, writer and author. Based in the Highlands, her lifelong love of the outdoors is the direct inspiration for daily life and work. Linda is a creator of rural words and images, and an advocate for countryside wellness and self care, nurturing creativity and reducing time on social media: get outdoors to self tune. Having started her professional life in recruitment in London, Linda’s life today couldn’t be further from the bright lights of the big city but with happiness at the core it’s quite the journey.
Join us as Linda takes us from her days headhunting, through not one but three cancer journeys, and how this strength, determination and self-belief have helped her navigate the path ahead and focus on happiness. Linda shares her love-hate relationship with social media, the challenges of self-employment through a global pandemic, how she responded to feeling the countryside was calling her, strong women who have inspired her and lots more.
