In this episode we discover key decisions one should address when you are about to make a career change.

His path from knowing “this is not my place any more” to the fear of moving away from a stable job and one’s fake identity. “The challenge is that you don’t move a step if you don’t know what you are moving towards and one often over estimates one's current status”. What gave his strength was his feeling that "the first steps I took, gave me a sense of happiness and wellbeing worth pursuing”.
