I was laid off. 9/11 happened, I ended a relationship. I was 28 or 29. And I realised that I wasn’t having success, a lot of my other friends in their 20s were achieving success. I don’t mean big success, but just traction in their job. They were moving up being promoted. And I was not and this was before I had realised I had ADHD. But I was really struggling to make it as in any career. And now I was approaching 30, and I really had to do some self analysis.
Stocks and Shares fascinate me immensely and do pique my interest. Previous to working here, I was shocked to see sums of cash and assets below £10,000. Soon after starting this position, I was placing trades worth up to £1m very quickly.

Being an employee was complicated for me. Life in Paris with a child was a real challenge. I needed space, nature and freedom. I spent too much time on the metro and at work, it was really difficult for me to see my child. Life was too expensive.

I was very underconfident for most of my life and, it was only when I studied coaching, that I became confident – in my late forties.
As an animal activist rights I dream about the day when the animal rights movement will be considered 100% part of a wider rights movement, including human or environmental rights.
My first office job was fantastic. It gave me my first taste of travelling and the opportunity to experience different work cultures. But at some point something changed. I learnt meditation from a Buddhist monk as a way to deal with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition that I been living with for the last 23 years.
My first job was as a Bank Clerk in Lisbon. I still remember the branch manager being very surprised and wanting to talk to my mom once I told her that I wanted to quit. It was very kind of her to do that because she also had kids my age and didn’t want me to make a wrong decision that I would later regret. But it was nevertheless funny that she wanted to talk to the mom of a grown-up man.
I discovered that I could adapt quickly to new environments and could work with people from different backgrounds while communicating successfully with everyone. Being a multipotentialite allows me to perform a variety of roles throughout the day, and push my boundaries.
