Whilst planning a ten-day trip that needed to end in Delhi and include a visit to the Taj Mahal, I came across the city of Lucknow.
As Uttar Pradesh’s second city, Varanasi conducts a vibrant cacophony of human activity. All aspects of life take place here, publically and relentlessly.
My brother recently informed me that quitting my job, leaving London, packing my bags and going travelling, looks like I’m running away…
I want to talk about resilience. Resilience isn’t found in the articles about stress or pursuit of happiness. It isn’t thought of as something we strive to improve like fitness or a healthy balanced diet. We don’t actively think about how resilient we are until we look back at challenging moments in our lives and marvel at the fact we made it through.
My Journey When I was 16, I met my first entrepreneur, Dave. He was interesting because he wasn’t doing things the “normal” way. He quit university to set up his own online business from his parent’s home in rural Northumberland. He taught me things like .com and .co.uk weren’t the only possible endings for web addresses; the word “shmooze”; and most importantly he suggested I might love working for a small company.
