I'm a history buff and I would ask...


Welcome to my new Career Chat sub series! 😉 A few years ago, it all started with the idea to ask the greats who’s been there and done that, the secrets to success. Over time it kinda got put on a back bench cause I actually don’t know many entrepreneurs in real life. But after rewatching National Treasure over the weekend, it hit me – history has a plethora of people who changed the world from where they stood. So why not ask them; life’s hardest questions?

Q & A with Matt Appling

Yes I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything, with May’s business of Mother’s Day, design portfolios, family gatherings and whatnot- it’s been hectic! But side fun fact, I actually started the draft of this post on 18 May and finally now it’s being published! Why? Because on average it takes at least 15 revisions/edited versions before it’s done and dusted to perfection 😉 So from me to you, enjoy!

Meet Matt Appling. Author of Life after Art. Blogger at the churchofnopeople blog. And art teacher by day!

Last year I bought Life after Art book and could not put it down once I started! Reading his book reminded me the importance to maintain the childhood wonder and excitement in living everyday and to create. As being a uni student, it’s so easy for us to be bogged down with uni work, volunteering, working and all other things while trying to land a full time job.

If you want to rediscover your former 5 year old self where everything was full of wonderment and enchantment, read on! =)


* I highly recommend reading Life after Art that’s now available on iBooks 😉
