We fortunately had the opportunity to press pause, distance ourselves from the race for a while, and ask the burning question: is there a better way than this? Surely, life was about realising one’s passions and using one’s skills without having to compromise on personal family responsibilities.
The biggest obstacle, we felt, was feeding the hunger for exciting work, while at the same time being able to provide adequately and lead a healthy family life, with the employment model of 9 to 5, every week, every month, every year.
The dream of being one’s own boss prevails. Having ownership where hard work results in personal reward and one is appreciated by their loved ones.
