My career path may seem slightly outside of the norm, given my traditional academic degree, followed by a standard ‘office job’ for a short while, before becoming an artist and training as a holistic healer. However, to me, becoming an artist and holistic healer, with a background in geography, politics and international relations is an obvious career path (sort-of).

It’s interesting writing about the personal blocks some may have to making money as an entrepreneur in my ‘Money Money Money’ series, as I think we all have things that we are working through (even holistic healers need therapists).
