Living the Dream & Keeping Costs Low

Today on the show we find out how to survive on the lower rungs of the creative career ladder (when you are expected to work very hard for pennies or even for free).


The creative industries are great to be involved in but with so many interesting and creative people already in the industry it's often hard to make your mark. 

Unless you've came out the right womb you'll need to start at the bottom and work our way up.
