Richard Stoker - How easy is it to be Joss Stone's dad?

A Cuppa Happy

10-10-2022 • 35 mins

Today, I'm speaking to my dad, Richard Stoker. Sweetheart? Yes. Savage? Definitely! While I was growing up, he was the yin to my mum's yang and a huge influence in shaping how I think about happiness. Dad has always had strong views on how we should live, make decisions, and think about problems. It's different to most people, but it's got him a long way... And he's a pretty happy guy. We speak about some of the lodgers we had when I was young. How his mindset helped him grow his little market stall to a business employing 40+ people, and why helping others matters. We also get into the weeds about the messy contract negotiations he helped me out with when I was young (sorry about that dad!) *** A massive thank you to our wonderful sponsors!
