22 years ago I looked in the mirror and decided I couldn’t live with myself if I stayed in my corporate job any longer.  At that time I was the managing director for a very large p.r. company in Canada, and one of the few senior women world wide.  Although we more than ‘made our numbers’ every quarter I felt disrespected and treated dismissively at quarterly management meetings.  The cross-Canada team was working well together, building business, high profile successes and my salary – for a while – made up for the general rudeness and disrespect.  So when I was asked to move to Washington or New York, I said no, and left the company – leaving behind the golden handcuffs of excellent salary/bonus, two secretaries, corporate travel and prestige.  I downsized, sold my house, expensive car, some art and jewelry, took time off and looked for something to do which fulfilled my heart. I took psychology courses, learned Reiki, color therapy training and discovered hypnosis.  Took the training and teacher training. Within months I’d opened a school and clinic which thrived to become Canada’s largest school and clinic.  This was sold five years ago, and now I just have clinic 2-days a week, teach at the University of Toronto and my own spiritual classes.  Life is good….even with less money than corporate.
