Switchin Gears In Later Years

Kei Maye

Spade a spade - there aren't enough opportunities for creators aged 25 & up.

Time and time again, creators over the age of 25 get 'othered' & left out of amazing opportunities as it's widely assumed that support is no longer needed and that everyone should be 'fully settled and established' by 25.

Not only is this unfair, it's also not indicative of reality.

Varying factors including but not limited to; mental health, physical health, neurodivergence, accessibility, under-representation, marginalisation, changes in circumstance - and then some - are all instances that can delay things by a long shot.

What you will learn:

  • Methods to help you transition from one role to another.
  • Methods to help you manage your time and your mind as much as possible throughout the whole pivoting process.
  • The different transferable skills that will truly help you to provide a dope service to your clients & customers.
  • Things to consider when starting out your creative careers.
  • Actionable steps to help people in the process of transitioning and juggling the act of stepping out of one role and into a creative one.

Perfect for you if:

  • In the process of transitioning into creative careers after years spent in seemingly unrelated jobs & career fields.
  • Pivoting from one discipline to another, in need of some tips on how to navigate this thing.
  • Wanting to learn more about the transferable skills you will need to not only get started, but help to develop your practice into something solid and qualitative.
