The Daily Grid is a series of interviews with interesting people doing interesting things. The aim of TDG is to explore the shift away from a thankless job to a meaningful career.

In the modern world, there are endless possibilities besides settling for a 9 to 5. You can be “successful” without graduating from university. You can be “rich” without money. You don’t need 30 years of experience before you get to call the shots.

In 2016, there is a still a stigma about certain career paths. Young people are still strongly advised to pick “sensible” and “secure” jobs. Being an artist, a freelancer, an entrepreneur is almost frowned up. I want to change this view and redefine success.
