I started my working career in banking and then moved into customer service. From there I moved into administration and secretarial work. Along the way, I completed a Certificate in Business and a Certificate in Workplace Management. This gave me great scope for working in areas like Human Resources and Office Management.
I was in my 30s when I decided to fulfil my lifelong goal of studying law. At the time, I was working for Patent and Trademark Attorneys. While it was what I had always wanted to do, I recognized within a few years that law was not everything that I had hoped it would be.
It was a wintery cold Sunday morning over a cup of coffee, when I realized that I was done in law. I’d had enough as I felt that I wasn’t making a difference any more.
