I'd been in sales 16 years when a set of family circumstances possessed me to take a leave of absence and a four year old foster son.
When I was ready to come back to work they'd done away with my division. There was no job for me to go back to.
Now I'm a teacher and coach at an alternative high school and I live the 'find something you love and that you're good at and you'll never work a day in your life' dream.
