In this episode, I chat with Grace Chon, a commercial pet photographer who worked for big brands such as Purina and Tinder. And she’s the host of the Creativity School podcast. We chat about her money story and upbringing as an Asian female, how she fell into a career as a creative which led to her unique career as a pet photographer. We also talk about why we need to stop hiding from the fact that creativity isn’t for everyone – it’s not just about creating art – and how we can cultivate this skill in all professions to help improve our bottom line.
Can you believe we’ve reached the end of season 4? Please stick to the end to hear some updates about what’s going on with the podcast, how you can continue living beyond the dollar and ways to keep in touch with the community.
