#171 Valentine Thomas- Spearfishing expert, & author - How To Quit A Job You Hate To Pursue A Career You Love, Sustainable, Ethical Eating, Spear Fishing, & Using Social Media To Build A Career
This week on THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL HIM & HER PODCAST…
( 0:55 ): Welcome back to TSC HIM & HER Show. Valentine Thomas is a Canadian born lawyer who worked in finance in London for six year before quitting that career path and pursuing her new career path of Spearfishing. Yes, Spearfishing! She is now a professional freediving instructor, spear fisher, TEDx speaker, & soon to be published author. On this episode we discuss how to quit a career you dislike, spearfishing, how to fish, shop, and eat sustainably and ethically, and why it’s so important to pursue what you love. We also discuss how social media has helped individuals in every profession shed light into professions that may have lived in obscurity.
