The latest chapter
I begin another chapter of my redesigned life this evening...I have signed up to undertake a Graduate Cert. in Digital Entrepreneurship.
I am looking forward to learning new things, and as always I plan to give it my best shot without hesitation.
Education has always appealed to my curious nature and I am a person who likes a challenge.....I am always looking for opportunities to learn more about things that interest me.
I was fortunate to decide my own destiny when I became my own boss many years ago as a self employed designer. I had literally lived my dream and followed the career path that I had imagined at the age of 13.
Over the past few years, due mostly to the fallout from Covid 19, very many things changed for all of us. I realised that the time had come for me to make the most of the next chapter of my life and career. I needed change, and this change had to include all of the things that are part of who I am, including creativity, integrity, courage, curiosity and sustainability.
I brought with me all of the many lessons I learned throughout my career to date...some that have brought me great joy and others that have made me more resilient.
I took the opportunity to become a mentor and trainer to individuals, start-ups and micro enterprises (particularly in creative fields)
I receive as much as I give, from being in the position where I can help others through my learned experience.
So this is where up-skilling comes in....the world is constantly changing and in a very short space of time technology has all but taken over, making life more convenient and accessible for most.
Rather than resisting change I have decided to embrace it......
I believe that keeping an open-mindset and being challenged to learn new things/skills can result in a boost to inner confidence and emotional well-being....
I look forward to the new chapter and I hope it is as exciting as the previous ones!!!!
