"Turning your passion into your job is easier than finding a job that matches your passion."

- Seth Godin 


Hi, I'm Rachel, and that's exactly what I did.

I hit burnout and left my passion-less job in banking to turn my passion for creating and connecting into my work.

Rachel's interview series on career change explores stories of those ditching corporate jobs for a creative life. 
Wondering how to change careers? 
Starting in a new industry? 
On the hunt for a new job? 
Want to go from a corporate to a creative career?

Creative Connections is a podcast about creativity and business, where Rachel chats with creative entrepreneurs that have made bold choices to prioritise a creative life.
Each episode is full of practical tips to navigate the realities of starting a business and insights on how creativity can benefit your life inside and outside of work.
If you want to turn a passion into a business or gain inspiration from entrepreneurs about how to be more creative, this podcast is for you.

featured guests.

Rachel organises monthly Surrey meet-ups for women to chat business and connect over coffee.  The Casual Coffee Mornings are for local women that want to build their network closer to home. 
The CCMs are for business owners, consultants and freelancers to come together in a friendly space to share ideas, the challenges and celebrate the victories (no matter how small) along the way.
The next event is in Epsom on Thursday 30th January 2020, I'd love to see you there. You can book your ticket here.
I can't wait to meet you soon!
