Without realising it, I was experimenting on myself throughout my teens and 20s. Trying new things, living in new places, completing 3 degrees because there was so much to learn and I couldn’t decide what I wanted to DO with my life. (Still don’t – and HOW much fun is trying to find out?).
I’ve ended up (so far) living a bit differently to most: my husband and I live in 2 rooms in a converted shed on the same property as my parents; we built our own campervan and plan to travel around Australia for a year in it; we’re self-employed; we live simply yet fully; we never (again) want a mortgage. In short – we’re learning that you don’t have to follow the well-trodden path to be fulfilled. In fact, it might just be better not to…
I make my living as a silversmith, selling my work online under the Epheriell label.
I also teach other creative entrepreneurs how to turn their handmade hobby into a business over at Create & Thrive.
I’m a budding triathlete and yogini – moving my body in new and challenging ways has become a hobby and a passion of mine. I write about that journey – as well as all of my other experiments and challenges in life – on my personal blog here.
