You might have noticed that my blogs have taken on a bit of a theme recently. Over the past few months I’d started to feel a bit stuck. I wanted to use my background in my writing and to me that meant working for professional services businesses.
After all, I’d spent a big chunk of my life as a solicitor. Surely those were the people I should be helping? The lawyers, accountants and financial advisers that I’d lived among for all those years. I understood them and the way their minds worked.
And yet, I wasn’t as excited about it as I used to be. I still have some fantastic clients who work in those industries, but I realised that it was the people that made it enjoyable and not just the subject.
So, I thought about who my favourite people are and what I really love doing. After a wonderful and random conversation with a photographer and a jewellery designer the truth was out. I love to travel and those are the businesses I want to write for. But why? What is it about exploring the world that excites me so much?
