A little about me...
Ok, I'm warning you, I'm about to get naked. Oh come on! Not LITERALLY! Ok, so let's get started. Helping others in different areas has always been part of me. I enjoy being part of a team and help that team grow to the top. And with me, the sky is the limit. I'm literally unstoppable (i.e. I dropped out of high school when I was 15 and started a university degree in biology because I just didn't feel like being in high school. I told you I'm unstoppable!). There are a few things that pushed me to open my business. Here are a few...
I wanted to help people
When I was working as a translator, I wanted to help my clients create better content. It was against my values to translate something I knew was not good enough. Yet, my job was to translate, not to educate. For me, it was "Good bye translation job!" time. So I went back to school and got a certification in content strategy to make sure I really had the most knowledge about content as possible.
I wanted to be happy
I wasn't truly happy where I was working. It didn't fulfill my need to come up with solutions. Instead, they made us go through time-consuming processes and they told us that's the way it worked. (Not an answer to give me!) I decided that I wanted to be happy doing the work I do. For my own sake, for my son's sake, for my family's sake. I knew I could do so much more if I was happy.
I wanted to be free
Ok, this sounds so cliché, but I truly wanted to have the freedom to stay with my son if he falls ill. I wanted to be able to go to his sports tournaments. I wanted to be there for him. I left the corporate world knowing I could be head of the department, because all this responsibility would have prevented me from being there for my son as much as I would like to.
