Being Resilient
Regardless of our age, challenging experiences are ALWAYS upon us.

Finally and thankfully, I experienced a sudden change in my corporate role, so I took the gap and finally made the punt to follow my gut and start over. Looking back on this experience, I have jotted down 10 very simple tips which would have been invaluable advice during that time. If you want your dreams to come true, it really doesn’t take that much to get started. With some planning, you too can make it happen, you owe it to yourself to give your dreams a go…
