Career Change: Stop hating your job, discover what you really want to do with your life, and start doing it!
I used to be an IT consultant, working in large corporates and boutique consultancies in Europe and Asia Pacific. I earned a 6 figure salary and was well-respected in my field, but I hated my job and I was miserable. I ate too much as a reward to myself, putting on weight over the 13 years and at points, I had a drinking problem.
In 2007, I knew I had to change something so I set out to understand how I could find a job that made me happy. Out of that research, I wrote the first iteration of this book, and then I followed my own advice … In Sept 2011, I left IT consulting for good and became a full-time author-entrepreneur.
I rewrote this book in 2012 in order to add chapters on being an entrepreneur and insights from actually taking the journey myself and successfully making it out of the rat-race to living a life and doing work I love!
