A long time ago, I mean at least 10, but probably 15 years ago, my mother gave me a quote. She doesn't remember but I'm sure she gave it to me because it's on the cream paper she always uses and in the font she always types in. I have been searching for this quote for YEARS. Since the breakdown of my marriage I think.

I've had a bit of a shock today. At the grand old age of 38, I've realised I've had not one, not two, but now three careers! I've had many jobs within those careers too! Having followed the traditional root of college and university, and bumming around for a year, I started work in my first chosen career when I was 22. I worked in pubs and bars, moved into contract catering and finally into events management, constantly working with customers and team leading on large and occasionally high profile events. I loved it and got to work in some stunning venues in London in my career.  

Reading is how we download new information. Until technology enables us to actually download new things, Neo "I know Kung-fu" style, reading and listening to audio books are the areas where the most knowledge can be learnt. Don't misunderstand me, I believe there is great value in some other learning streams too, TEDtalk videos for example. We have been writing for far longer than we have been creating videos though so the depth and breadth of content available is astounding.
