Paul Michael

Advertising blogger and copywriter, and creative director for over 20 years

I started my career in London, England in 1996 after graduating from a great university specializing in advertising and design. Those first years in London were tough. One of the most expensive cities in the world, and my salary was just 12,000 pounds per year. I hardly had enough food or money for rent, but I made it. I learned how to save and how to navigate an extravagant city. I thought times as a student were tough, but those first years in London prepared me for a lifelong career as someone who 'lives large on a small budget.' Now I hope to help you do the same.
