About Linda

Stop waiting for success to come to you; get out there and find it.

I took a chance and gave up the rate race, and it is the best decision I ever made! How many of you can say the same?

I have been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt! The eight till five life was once my life but I was not living, I was merely just existing. However, I figured this was the only route and that we were all doing it, so perhaps I should just get on with it, no matter how unhappy I was. After all, working in a prestigious business consultancy company, I believed that at least I had a job.

But, what happens when you start reading successful and popular blogs, and you find yourself thinking, I could do a heck of a lot better than them?  The answer, you make it a reality, and you show them how much better you can do – and that was what I finally did. I took my chance before it was too late, and I created the hugely impressive and viral blog you see before you.

I am living proof that with a little determination and hard work, it is entirely possible to get out there and find the success you are hungry for.
