Finding a Purpose Post-Education with Aidan Swanepoel

Updated: Sep 22



My next guest is Aidan Swanepoel, an experienced sales rep and inspiring entrepeneur. He studied Hospitalities and Marketing Management at Fanshawe College in London. Over the last year, he has been working full time as a Sales Representative at Shred-it. Aidan has learnt more from the past year in terms of how business’s operate for than he had in 3 years of school. Sales is something he loves doing and sees himself pursuing the craft for years to come. Aidan says watching me over the last year has opened his eyes to the entrepreneurial efforts of creating your own business.


I speak with Aidan Swanepoel on the next episode of The Creative Kind Podcast. We chat about the difference between starting a career as an entrepreneur versus taking a 9 to 5 job for a large company. Aidan and I shed some light on the positive and negative aspects of each path forward.  This is an interesting episode for recent graduates and entrepreneurs alike!
