CANCELLED / Creative HQ: How throwing tantrums and giving up got me my dream job
How throwing tantrums and giving up got me my dream job - An ex-teacher’s account of embracing the inner toddler, seeking more and finding it.
Thinking that you deserve more is valid, seeking more is your right, and remembering what brought us joy as children can reveal who we really are and what we really want.
Join us for an ex-teacher’s account of career-jumping, letting go of expectations, being a quitter and how every step of the journey counts towards something (even if you don’t know what that is yet!)
