Hello!The Unlikely Traveller welcomes you...
As of this writing I've had only ever had two full time roles both of which were in IT and as a technical support analyst. I committed myself to these roles for thirteen years which is a long period of time, especially considering I'd only reached the ripe old age of 32 years at this point. During these many years, I would lose count of the amount of people that would be surprised to learn of my IT-based background (rather than a sales). As a 'people-person', I've always known that but thinking back, I didn't have the self-confidence, belief or guidance in my teenage years to see me pursue this path.
Then 2014 came and things started to change. My long term girlfriend and I separated and my new place of work was beginning to frustrate me with my abilities suppressed, my potential still untapped and my progression, uncertain.
It took over 6 months of self-deliberation to take a dream and turn into a reality but the sacrifice of this dream would come at a cost. You see, to make this choice I would disrupt the solid foundations I'd built for myself over the past decade. I would be gambling with my career to the point where I would no longer have a career!
