I wanted to document my journey with my life and business so I could show others it is possible to do something you love while making a living from it. The previous attempt was under the moniker “Lifestyle Upgrade” and although I made a few videos and blog posts, I was doing these at a very difficult time in my life where I was struggling to make ends meet as an entrepreneur after leaving the safety net of a full time job in July 2014.
You can see the videos I shot while I was making the transition if you look through my older Youtube videos.
Now things are a lot more stable, I’ve secured some good clients and enjoyed a certain degree of success with Cakebox Creative, I’ve decided to rebrand under my own name (Andrew Akinyede.com) replacing the “Lifestyle Upgrade” brand for my Youtube channel and blog.
This time I’ll be making new content in video format, and also a podcast (sometime next month) talking about the highs and lows of life and business, and of some of my favourite things that make the world a beautiful and interesting place including art, design and music and travel.
I’ll leave you with the first video in my new series “Life & Design”.
I hope you enjoy my second crack at this, and I’d appreciate if you’d subscribe and share your thoughts with me in the comments section below. I look forward to this new chapter and would love for you to join me.
