I didn't get much career advice at school. When I told them I wanted to be a writer, they said: "Writers starve in garrets. Be a teacher. There's a shortage of those."
I didn't want to be a teacher, so I trained as a journalist and made a career as a copywriter.
These days, one-third of my income comes from training people how to do it themselves, so maybe I've become a teacher after all.
How did you get into training?
