I have been writing since my teenage years. Back then I did not realize that it was more than a passing phase, interest or hobby. That is why I listened to the left part of my brain and studied business instead:)
My business education helped me enjoy a successful corporate career for more than 14 years. But at some point I felt that this job had no value anymore. The corporate job cannibalized everything I wanted to do with my life. It left no time for my personal life and simple life pleasures. And what is more important it killed my dreams.
My creative and independent nature was waking up and making me feel trapped. I longed for freedom. There was a strong desire to follow my passion and to invest all the time and energy to what I love as opposed to the prosperity of a breathless brand.
It took long time to realize what I would like to do with my life but it took much more to get the courage and make the first step.
Finally I signed my resignation. And that was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.
