A Privileged Life

With writer-journalist Sabine Leenhouts

In my previous life most people I met in connection with work were lawyers, consultants and bankers. Not that I did not enjoy my corporate life but there was a definite mismatch between my head and my heart. My life now is much more in tune with my heart. I feel privileged getting up in the morning, being my own boss doing what I love most. I still meet the corporate gang but as friends and some have become lovely clients!
Another privilege in my new 'capacity' is meeting wonderful creative people with utter and complete passion for their work. Sparkling writer and journalist Sabine Leenhouts is such a person. She has a wealth of experience writing for women and lifestyle magazines and is now in the process of writing her first book called"Plan B" to be published by Bruna. The book is a compilation of 20 interviews of people that completely turned around their lives in pursuit of their passion. Last week she interviewed me for her book. It was an in-depth interview and I enjoyed every minute of it.  After she left I felt upbeat and inspired, she really understood where I was coming from.
So as you can understand I feel oh so privileged to be in Sabine's book!
