Episode 1: Working in an office. Is it right for you?
I recently had a lot of conversations taking me back to the same topic over and over: working in an office. For some people, it’s a great thing and they find balance developing skills, overcoming challenges and dealing with daily responsibilities. But if you stepped in an office too soon, or by mistake, you might just find yourself stuck in a routine that could turn out to be soul-crushing.
I found that a lot of times people already have the answer but fear being honest with themselves because then, they wouldn’t know where to start. Look for a new job? But where? If not in an office? Start my own business? No way! Too risky. And the rent? What about my student loan and my health insurance? Of course these are all extremely important questions. But something I realized myself after leaving the office environment and after talking to people who also took important professional turns in their life is that: another way exists.
If you think that your office life might be affecting your personal relations, your stress level even when off work, your ability to enjoy the simple pleasures and become who you really are…then start thinking about your alternatives. There are a million ways to make a living, one is right for you.
