I was fortunate.
I will be forever grateful for the circumstances I was born into, stepped into, found myself in.
But I there were still decisions to make:
The trip to New Zealand. I did not know anyone. And got stuck.
Starting a business without a guarantee of income. Working hard in and on the business. Putting effort into the relationships with business partners, staff, contractors, suppliers, customers. Without expectations, but not really.
Building an offgrid tiny house on wheels. Without owning land.
Walking away from a business. Without a job to go to.
Now I have carved out satisfying work that pays the bills and let’s me pour my creative energy into various impact business projects.
I pondered on 3 options:
I ended up burnt out
Exactly what I did by downsizing
Take more risks
This was only possible after I accumulated a little nest-egg
Now looking back, I’m immensely grateful how everything turned out. The world is changing and I am prepared to do my part to make the change for the better. Humans are amazing.
