Jimmy Carr needs no introduction and is one of the biggest names in British comedy. Jimmy has hardly been off our screens for the last two decades. He has countless shows to his name, even performing in front of the queen.

But what people may not know is that Jimmy has another side to him. When he was in mid-20s, Jimmy was in a boring office job, without much joy or direction in his life. But he set himself on a journey of self-improvement. Out of nowhere, he decided to quit and start again, the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, Jimmy shares with us the actionable lessons in how he did it and how they are relevant to YOU. Jimmy is always looking for lessons to take out of his incredible story, and I think after listening to this, you’ll definitely see that behind Jimmy’s extraordinary story lies a very ordinary person committed to trying new things, working hard, and pursuing his passion.
