Has your year ended how you wanted?

Among my friends New Year’s Eve is always polarizing. They fall into two camps: 1. Some love it, the idea of celebrating the year with a bang, and eagerly anticipating the new year 2. The others are rushing for the year to be over, as they didn’t enjoy it, and they are not that enthused about the coming 12 months either. Where are you?

What is it that stirs the winds of change? And makes you become a Corporate Crossover, leaving your life as an employee to become an entrepreneur?  The ignition for that fire, and the catalysts for change, are different for everyone.  Every situation is very personal, based on our individual values and circumstances. But there is one thing we all have in common: there comes a point in our lives where we just can’t take it anymore The desire to leave and pursue our own business may have been bubbling along in the back of our minds for a while. Then a switch flips, or a series of events cascade, and the decision suddenly becomes obvious. You realise: There must be more to my life than this. I want to be in control of my destiny. I value my flexibility and autonomy over any job, salary or title. My cores values are not represented at the...
