What is a former Construction Project manager, General Manager, wielder of huge power and political manoeuvrings doing now?
It will be a journey, but one that has actually already begun as I moved away from the shady corporate world of covering for those who can’t.
Working for and with those that make a living “hiding” in a safe job doing just enough not to get noticed and never make a decision for fear of it being wrong.
I’ve worked for owners who had taken few “away days” at a planning retreat to pen the grand mission statement about customer service and being the best consultancy in their field. Upon their return they printed this goal on the wall and went back to their office. In fact the wall art was quite near where they asked me to over-bill clients – twice – ( and it is beyond me how anyone actually had the cojones to ask me a second time!)
The universe had clearly been trying to send me a message, and this time I got it loud and clear.
No way Jose… and so it was that we parted company and a few months later.
For anyone else out there that wants to make this journey out of the corporate world and compromised values and into something that means more to you, I hope the blog will ease the transition and avoid some of the slow detours and dead end paths, as I find the path to riches, freedom and purpose ..or any one of them.
for me the new start means a promise to myself to not compromise my values again, be self employed, help people who are newer to the path, meet and connect and be friends with people I like, and explore my passions: high altitude walking, travel, language and art. Let the journey begin.
