26. From Corporate To Start Up To Freelance By Age 23 - Sarah Kelsey's Story

This is the first episode where I bring on a young person to share their experiences in the world of work. Sarah Kelsey is a 23 year old Kiwi with ridiculous amounts of wisdom and insight. She has a kick ass podcast called The OneUp Project which is all about financial literacy and personal growth.

During out chat we discuss:

→ Why she left a corporate accounting career, 9 months into her graduate year.

→ The upsides and downsides of having a guaranteed job out of university.

→ Why she started The OneUp Project and how it has opened so many doors.

→ The different beliefs her parents had around university.

→ The 3 month break she took to create space to make her next career decision.

→ Her experiences in corporate vs start up culture.

→ The need for parents to validate a child when they don't know what they want to do.

→ The exciting adventure that Sarah is about to embark on in Bali.
