Have you ever been called on to explain why you do what you do for a living? This happened to me at a networking lunch recently. We always do a thirty second introduction, but this time the organiser asked us to go a bit further. As I stood up I described my former life as a solicitor and why I’d chucked it all in to become a freelance writer.
Another lady told us she was an accountant and she’d always wanted to be one, it was really boring. Then our speaker, a fantastic life coach called Sandra Pollock, began her talk. She turned to this lady and told her that she should never, ever say that her job is boring.
