God, I Loved my job in banking, loved working with my colleagues globally, being surrounded by so many talented individuals with a combined brain power that defies the imagination. you know, feeling that the world is yours to take... You learn that success is all about managing change. I tend to think I was quite successful in it, delivering bigger projects every year passing by...oh yes, I enjoyed every minute of that life during 20 years.

I knew that this was now the time for a life changing decision, a free-fall, a re-boot. I took a big breath, and jumped on that summer of 2011.
