I want to make it as easy as possible for anyone to start and grow a business or side hustle and follow their true, creative passions.
My mission is to make it as easy as possible for anyone to follow their creative passions. Whether that be to start a business or a side hustle, write a book, a screenplay, a hit song, start a blog, design a building – whatever gets their juices flowing.
People talk a lot about financial freedom and escaping the 9-5… While money is important and we all need it, being fulfilled by what you are doing on a daily basis is the key to happiness. If you’re doing what you love, the money will follow.
Through my podcast and blog, I will personally be delivering as much value as possible by sharing my own experiences from the last 7 years as an Entrepreneur. I’ll also be engaging other inspirational, successful and insightful figures from a variety of industries to contribute their thoughts and advice.
Picasso famously said, “We are all born artists – the trick is to remain an artist as we grow older”. I ultimately want to show people that it’s possible to ‘retrain’ themselves to return to those instinctive creative capacities they’ve forgotten about, so they can go on to do amazing things that fulfil them everyday.
Reports From The Trenches
I come from a very creative background, I was a talented musician and artist and not so good at the core school subjects. I got a music scholarship to a very good school in Perthshire (Scotland) when I was 12. When I was 18 I started at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester studying Saxophone and Clarinet. I had a wonderful time there but I struggled with confidence and still do, after years of relentless bullying. The last 7 years working for myself has comprised some brutal lows and epic highs which have taken a massive toll on my mental health.
