Meet the amazing fire dancer and creative entrepreneur, Logan Elliott, founder of Highly Flammable Ltd

Growing up in a farm, Logan had brief encounters with business when he was growing up from selling farm produce in the market to creating events for his local community in Christchurch. His experience from creating local community events created the passage to founding his entertainment company Highly Flammable which specialises in providing performances such as stilt walking, juggling, fire performances for corporate events.

In this episode of Transitions Podcast, I speak with Logan about his career in the entertainment business, the common struggles faced by creatives in getting acceptance & how to expand a creative business.
