Designing Your Lifestyle, Creating Art and Working From Home with Joanna Penn

Imagine you’re in a job that pays well… really well. It’s an okay job. By many peoples’ standards you’ve got the ideal life. You occasionally get to travel with work, you have a lot of responsibility and it affords you the little luxuries that you want. But the golden handcuffs make it hard to admit to yourself that you’re just not that happy with your job.

I’m talking about myself, but I’m also talking about award-winning author and entrepreneur, Joanna Penn.

If you’re in the writing world, you’ve no doubt heard of Joanna Penn of and you’ve maybe even used some of the incredible resources that she has available as blog posts, podcast episodes and books. This isn’t to mention the many thriller fiction books that she has available.

Whether you’re a writer or not, what I think will resonate for listeners about this episode is how to make a significant career change, particularly into working for yourself, and even working from home. Joanna and I talk not only about how she made this shift, but also about health for those who work from home, business planning, how you balance your days when you are self-employed, and how to find that inner confidence, particularly when you lead a creative life.

It’s a must listen!
