By Deepak Sawhney (India)

My friends & ex colleagues from corporate world very often talk to me, candidly, their wish to get out of a 10-5 routine and do what their heart desires. Having observed me for few years operating independently in the domain of executive & business coaching, the questions are about when I thought about it & how I went about it? I do share honestly all of it. It seems to build their confidence. I am, however cautious enough to add that each of us who change their career direction have to think through their transition and journey. Each individual is unique and so is their thinking.

At the end of the day, each one of us takes our decisions based on our goals & current situation. It is therefore imperative that we focus on these two and ask ourselves the questions.
