I just finished listening to another fantastic podcast from Tim Ferris about the Top 5 Reason's to be a Jack of All Trades. Or in my case, Jill of All Trades.
I was sat in a classroom at 16 years old and told to pick my four A Level subjects.
As a young student I was totally flummoxed (great word) at having to select my subjects, which I was lead to believe would define my future.
Two years later it was all about searching university prospectuses, scanning endless lists of potential degrees available and I felt the same confusion over what subject to choose. Where to specialize...
I settled on what I thought was the most exciting option... to leave home and go work in Mexico, work as a kayak guide, learn Spanish and travel around Central America at 18.
My life has continued on a similar path. Amazing adventures with interesting people, a host of different jobs and exciting experiences including producing the Do Lectures in wine country California, Sales Director for one of the best surf resort in the jungles of Costa Rica, Office Manager at the home of Outdoor Adventure sport Coasteering, Escaping from Alcatraz, Ironman Cozumel, and working on the world's first accelerator dedicated to girls in poverty.... and that's all in the last 3 years.
