In this article, I will explain to you how, at the age of thirty, I decided to change my profession and pursue my passion.
After high school where I was not very good at mathematics (but otherwise very good student) I decided to enroll in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. After one semester I dropped out of college because I did not have good mathematical foundations and could not keep up with classes.
Not long after, I started working. At first, these were low-paying jobs, and I changed them every couple of months hoping to figure out what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I spent ten years at my last company. Surely you wonder how it could have been if it wasn't a dream job? I hadn't planned to stay that long, but my employer raised my paycheck every few months. I loved the money and all that it brings. I could start living on my own, I started traveling and buying things that I couldn't afford until now. And every time I got fed up with my current job and started planning for a career change, my employer promoted me to a new position.
So in the first five years of working as an ordinary controller, I came to a higher controller, then to a dispatcher, and eventually to the head of the technical department. A job I had done for the last five years
It was interesting at first, but through some years it became monotonous. I no longer had to master new skills, it all came down to monthly routines. Then I started to wonder how much longer I would endure in this job. I was dissatisfied, only possessed the skills for that particular type of work, but I still didn't know what I would like to do for the rest of my life.
I look forward to mastering new technologies.
After graduation, I decided to quit my job, start my own company and work as a freelancer. Now I'm sitting in the office with the same friend and now mentor who showed me the first lines of HTML code three years ago. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with a friend who has 10 years of experience in the field, and I hope that the student will one day become as good as a teacher.
And finally, for all of you reading this, take my advice, follow your dreams, be passionate about what you do, and get out of your comfort zone every once in a while.
