A decision that had a huge impact on your life
I was working for a high-profile brand, at a great employer where I had stability, security and was well-respected. I was approached to move to an unknown market entrant, starting from scratch again. It was a hard decision, but I felt excited about the potential opportunity so trusted my gut, took a leap of faith, knowing I would learn more in the next year than staying in my existing role.
