Taking the Leap! Episode 3: Leaving the Corporate World Behind

Jon Wilkening is a truly amazing photographer and artist, but he's also a modern day sage for anyone contemplating leaving the corporate world behind to do their life's work. In this episode, Jon explores his own journey from working for a series of large financial institutions to becoming an artist and bagging his former co-workers groceries.

You can find him at, along with his insanely inspiring Monday Morning Dispatches and the super-cool Instant Film Venture.
