Two years ago, I reached a point where I was experiencing borderline burnout for several months. I was the director of the Pyxis consulting team and I was struggling to balance training sessions, clients, business development and other responsibilities. I desperately needed to do something different and get myself out of that environment.
One day, I finally hit my breaking point and decided to leave my team to pursue entrepreneurship. In conversations with management, they offered an interesting alternate proposal: What if I could stay with the company and reinvent myself by having the chance to explore my entrepreneurial side?
