In our latest pick from the best of the Virgin Podcast, we hear once more from Mark Dawson - the bestselling author of the John Milton and Soho Noir novels - about how writers can become entrepreneurs.
Mark worked as a DJ, a door-to-door ice cream seller, a factory hand, and a club promoter before training as a lawyer. In 2015, he wrote a million words - in his spare time! - and had his books downloaded a million times. We should all be so diligent.

Have a listen and find out more about his fantastic story.
