I am a Global Corporate Trainer & Executive Coach. My background is Finance and Banking. I took an extended career break of 10 years after having my children then set up my business “Stressed In The City” a few years back. I work with professionals to help them overcome any career challenges and to position them to capitalise on their career opportunities.
My name is Ryan Connolly. I’m a 32 year old Scotsman living in Iceland. I run an adventure tour company in Iceland, called Hidden Iceland. I am the Marketing Manager and co-founder of the company along with local expert, Dagný Björg Stefánsdóttir and Australian geologist, Scott Drummond. I am currently running a boutique adventure tour company called Hidden Iceland that specialises in glacier hikes, ice cave exploration, northern lights hunting and off the beaten path travel.
My name is Jenny and I’m originally from Munich, Germany but haven’t lived there for the past 10+ years. In my old life, I was a chemist, I even got a PhD in chemistry, but after I finished I wanted a complete change of scenery and went travelling on a round-the-world trip with my boyfriend which was supposed to last 1 year. We travelled for about a year and then worked in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa for a year before starting to work online and living the digital nomad lifestyle.
In 2014, Goli Kalkhoran quit practicing law and embarked on a journey to figure out what actually made her happy. Since then she’s had 2 kids, started a business, dabbled in passion projects, and forged a completely new path that lights her up. And yet, she’d still says she’s figuring it out. When I was quitting, one thing I constantly thought about was how I was going to “waste” all of the years and money I had invested in becoming a lawyer.
The short version is that I am an English major who wanted to be a writer. After graduating from college, I won a honeybee hive in a raffle. Keeping bees is strangely addictive and before I knew it, I was pursuing a career as a honeybee scientist. Bees have taken me all over the world: Germany, Ireland, Wales, France and New Zealand, where beekeepers hosted me in their homes for a month. Some day they’ll take me to China, Australia and Thailand.
I never had a straight approach to my career, I felt that if I gathered different experiences that they’d all help me get somewhere through transferring skills. Over the years, I’ve learnt from my experiences that I really, really like to help people. I volunteered with an incredible service helping people struggling with mental health issues, substance addiction and being LGBT+ and I also volunteered at Transport for London leading the LGBT+ Staff Network.
