Joanna Penn, NYT Bestselling Indie Author and popular podcaster, has a masters degree in theology from Oxford. Joanna then spent 13 years working in IT consulting. She would implement accounts payable into large corporates.

Like many cubicle slaves… she was paid well, traveled lots, had what you are “meant to want” in life and was miserable.

She tried everything to get out of IT. Like starting a scuba diving company in New Zealand (which tanked). She did property investing in Australia, which she couldn’t care less about. She tried lots of things and always went back to her day job.

Three years ago she left her day job to become a full time author and professional speaker.
