How Naza left her stable (but stressful) career and turned her life upside down completely to pursue her dreams in Asia

In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend Naza from Copenhagen (Denmark).

I met Naza through common friends when visiting them in Copenhagen on several occasions. We have been keeping in touch through Facebook over the years, she is a positive person and when I met her she seemed very happy and dedicated about her career. Just in November of this year, she posted on her Facebook profile that she would leave her corporate job and her happy life in the bustling Scandinavian capital to move to Asia to pursue her dreams of becoming a licensed yoga teacher, to teach English to underprivileged Thai children and open her yoga school in Bali! That was quite a surprise to me but I was very happy for her at the same time.
Naza will share her story and lessons with us on the show and even if you are not planning to change your life in such an extreme way, there are some great takeaways from the conversation for all of us!  … More How Naza left her stable (but stressful) career and turned her life upside down completely to pursue her dreams in Asia
