#foundersfriday ~ part 1

Do you feel unfulfilled and unexcited by what you do?

It really all started when I felt absolutely fed up. The only obsessive thought left rotating in my mind was --- "I want to do something that gets me buzzing with excitement every day" and "I don't want to be 80, looking back on my life and thinking, what if."

After being a lawyer for 10 years, with all the studying, work and effort that went into all of it I really did feel stuck at times. "But it would be such a waste of all those years of experience" leave would mean I would have wasted all that hard work, but I couldn't be further from the truth.

All that experience you've gained in one career are so transferrable and so helpful for what I do now.

Honestly, the idea of leaving my cushy lawyer job was f***ing scary. It's the scariest thing I've ever had to do in my life. However, I haven't regretted it for one teeny smidge of a second and I get to finally be building something that I'm truly passionate about.
