build the career you really want

Recently, I went for a walk with a dear friend. She’d just returned from holiday and was feeling blue about the prospect of work on Monday morning. My attempts to cheer her up weren’t exactly going down well. ‘It’s all right for you,’ she retorted. ‘You love what you do for a living. Me, I’m just hanging on for my pay cheques and the weekend.’ I didn’t point out that the pay cheques in question would make most people think they’d won money on the lottery – nor that we had always had different priorities. When my friend left university, her focus was to earn as much cash as possible. Growing up in a single-parent family, she dreamed of owning her own home, and of being able to help her mother…

“there is opportunity to found beauty everywhere; you just need to change the way you look for it”

“I love nature, but I also want people to look at the beauty of the obscure, the decaying”“One of my followers sent me a message saying:‘When I look at your pictures, it’s like I’m having therapy’” Brighton-based artist Philippa Stanton works mostly from her garden shed; it is a cosy, cluttered creative space, with the earthy scent of wood and dried paint mixed with paper and fresh air wafting in from the garden outside. ‘I love tending to the garden early in the morning,’ she says. ‘Weather permitting, I usually go for a bike ride afterwards, around 7am, either in the countryside or along the coast.

How many of us have thought about turning our hobby into a side hustle that makes a little money and may even turn into a full-time job? Soap making, crafting, baking, writing – is it possible to make these things pay? And, with a full-time job, how do you find the time? I have been turning these things over in my mind for some time now, and watching others with the courage and determination go for it. As a full-time writer, I would like to launch a blog and podcast about faith and spirituality in the modern world. This is partly because I want to interview people and learn more about their religion – or lack of it – but also because I’d love to put my own stamp on my…
