Too late?



This weekend I attended the wedding of a lawyer turned video games producer and an organic chemist turned pastry chef turned food writer.
 
I’m married to a police officer who has just recently turned his attention to starting his own business and to full time architecture study.
 
My father in law was a forestry worker till his 30’s when he decided to become a doctor.
 
My newest business partner in our real estate agency started her working life in hairdressing.
 
Speaking of hairdressers, one of my closest friends now also owns her own commercial real estate agency and started in hairdressing.
 
And another close friend who I blogged about recently started as a hairdresser only to successfully open two salons, become a real estate investor and is now launching into a styling business.
 
“The difference between what you were yesterday and what you
will be tomorrow is what you do today.” - Stephen Pierce
 
I’m surrounded by examples of people that bucked their “every day” and shot for their dreams. I’m sure you are too if you just ask around.
 
What’s your dream?

And before I forget - congratulations to pharmacist turned travel writing Ben (http://www.redrucksack.com/) on his recent wedding (he met his wife while he was setting out achieving his dreams).

Thanks for this great article.

I've been made redundant twice in the last 24 months and for the last 4 or so months, I've been looking for work. But as I search, the thought that is at the forefront of my mind is whether I want to continue being at the mercy of the corporate world that offers no loyalty nor security...

At the same time though, the counter thought is the idea of pursuing one of my dreams! However, the latter thought is very quickly abated by my corporate obedient consciousness.

I will print this blog and pin it to my wall and from now on it will act as the shield for my dreams!

Hi Samar - you have no idea how much I love to read comments like yours - good luck in your new adventures to follow. Be bold! Be fabulous! xx Kirsty

I went from being a pastry chef in a small country town in 2008 to head of Commercial law at Brydens in 2013.
