The Career Change Diaries Podcast: Episode 11


In the latest episode of the podcast, we speak to Rosie Croft, who worked in luxury fashion buying for 12 years, working with some of the world’s most prestigious brands.

After years of feeling dissatisfied, Rosie changed career, and is now a skilled artisan craftswoman, creating bespoke handmade lampshades using antique fabrics.

We hear how the magic words ‘portfolio career’ opened Rosie’s eyes to what a diverse and varied career aligned to her values could look like, and how helpful it was to experiment with her ideas before committing to the one that inspired her the most.

Rosie’s story really shows how a career change can bring about a whole lifestyle change, leading to a happy, content, and more chilled life.
