009: From Anorexia to Personal Stylist

This week’s guest comes from ‘the other side of the pond’ and I adore her accent 😉

Kidding aside, Carol Hanson and I talk about a pretty heavy topic – anorexia. Carol lived with it for over 20 years! Listen in as we chat about her struggle with it, how it nearly broke her marriage, took a toll on her mentally and physically.

And now she’s a passionate personal stylist that inspires women who have a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing wear. But it’s more than that… she helps them overcome body image issues and to feel good about themselves too.

About Carol

I lived with anorexia for over 20 years, which nearly broke my marriage (we survived and have been together for nearly 40 years), damaged my health, mentally, physically – probably left me infertile – I had my menopause in my 20s. I now inspire women who have a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear. I help them to look and feel fabulous while treading lightly on the planet.

I started my styling consultancy in 2015 on the back of a less successful business. In 2013 with no experience in fashion, e-commerce or marketing I bought an existing online boutique ‘how hard could it be’! Prior to that I’d had a long career in accountancy and general management. Including a stint of running my own accountancy business for 9 years.

I’m a fitness enthusiast and passionate dog lover.
