When I decided to quit my job and work for myself, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur.
I simply dreamt about a life with more freedom, working with incredible people and truly helping others rather than being caught up in meeting after meeting in small grey rooms. I was sick of “paid time off” that I had to earn, of my ideas being dismissed as too unconventional, of having to dress for a world I never felt I belonged to. I wanted to travel, to be able to work from anywhere, to shape my future myself.
But once I quit my job and made the leap into self-employment, I found so much more. I discovered in myself – and in my clients as well – a leadership that is disrupting how things have been done and focusing instead on a holistic, humanistic approach to business and activism.
