Andrew Rajan started out as a Mechanical Engineer at the Ministry of Defence... Not what you were expecting?! Me neither. After that, he just traveled the world a bit and then came back and went to Drama School... Ah, I see!
When popping out into the real world from the wonderfully safe and warm womb of drama school, some things became clear to Andrew, as they do to most of us. This is not as simple as it was when I was at Guildhall.
Stereotypes come into play, the extended periods of "rest" become a thing. Andrew didn't mess about, he saw brick walls and instantly got to working out how to get through, around, over and under them.
We talk about giving yourself permission to be brilliant.
Nurturing your talent and looking after yourself.
Exploring all creative avenues that you can express yourself in.
Not giving yourself a hard time (referring to some of my previous solo pods).
We also get into what really doesn't inspire you and using that as a springboard to fly in the opposite direction.
Andrew has covered so much because, much like Ken, he is curious and motivated by what is possible for him to achieve.
So listen to this and then go and grab a copy of one of his books or watch one of his films and see what amazing things he has been able to achieve.
I will be doing a giveaway of his newest book THE BIG GAME which comes out at the end of July. Check out the Facebook page for more details.
