My 2009 was quite simply, epic. And therefore, so is this post!
This time last year I chose “get results” as my New Year’s resolution. I ended up changing my life around within a month. Here’s where it all began:
How it started
2008 I took exams and continued building solid career experiences at a web design company in Nottingham. I was working as a web marketing consultant there until February 2009 when they told me some gutting news; they had to make me redundant. As devastated as I was to leave, I’d had a niggling urge in the back of my mind for a few months about travelling or relocating. Being made redundant made me turn those ideas into a reality and I started to explore travel options and research living and working in London, leaving my quiet countryside life behind. One of my leaving presents was the book The Yes Man by Danny Wallace (aff) – one of the best gifts of the year as I followed in his footsteps and ended up changing my life around and having some phenomenal experiences in the months that followed.
Gathering momentum towards the Big Smoke
In the month between finishing my job in Nottingham and moving to London, a LOT happened!
