Today I feel strangely thankful for BREXIT, for talented youth that want to spend their working lives otherwise than in cooperate offices and for a trend that high performers are not necessarily looking for a high salary or work security in their dream job.
I realise that by creating my small scale company, flexible at heart in my business model, I have created job opportunities for some of the world's most talented and resourceful people.
Today, I had a job interview with a young law graduate, who wanted to escape a career in law firms in London while he still has the chance to seek a different kind of job in one of the city hubs for international adventurers in Europe.
As he said: Due to BREXIT, I must make a move now - I don't know whether in 6 months I will have to get a visa to work outside of UK! This is said by someone, previously working with immigration cases.
This young lad could get any wellpaid job in the world! Yet he chooses to apply for a job-job basis work with me today - and is even happy to volunteer to get more experience in the field of bike guiding. He seeks the out-of-office kind of work, the adventure of meeting people from all over the world, the uncertainty of the independant worker's having to adjust to the day to come way of operating, the possibility of exploring and learning about this beautiful region by bike, the challenge of spreading the ways of doing sustainable living by DOING something different than the main stream.
I feel so very humble for finding that I attract such talent from what I have already done during my few years of operating through my out-of-the-box career choice.
Sometimes the world chooses you.
