What was the best thing that has happened to you last year?
In fact, I was contemplating whether to write this.
Because I do not have the best story to tell…. for the longest time I’ve relocated to Singapore, I could not get a job, the only 3 or 4 interviews I’ve attended (out of the 100+ resumes I’ve sent) ended up either not able to hire me or offered me a junior level salary for a senior position. Friends would say, given the situation, it’s normal and it’s kind of expected.
But…. for a person who used to be making a decent income, to suddenly lose that financial independence, I felt as good as I’ve lost my self-worth. Life was unglamorous and I nearly went into a depression.
One door closes, another one opens.
This hurdle has brought the best out of me and led me to start my own business doing the things I love – helping like-minded entrepreneurs and startups create their online presence.
What I have gone through was quite disheartening, but I am forever grateful.
