How to survive…your ‘customer facing’ job role.

I love my life the way it is and I am a believer of things happening because that’s the way they should be happening, there’s a reason for the bad things and the good things and the people you meet, the “wrong” decisions you make, etc. Everything that has happened to me has happened for a reason, at least I hope so! And those things are finally coming to fruition. So I could tell … Continue reading Advice for my younger self
