When Start-Ups Don’t Start

Author : Grinsted, Keith
Bio : Keith has been made redundant six times in the past eighteen years! Yes, he picked a few duff companies to work for. Though, in his defense, some of these were in the dot-com boom and- bust years! POP, they went! Keith knows and understands the issues individuals face when they must start their careers over again and often, perhaps, reinvent who they are. Equally, they often need to learn about a completely new sector. He has worked with many people facing life after redundancy, or simply looking for a new start having reached a crossroads. The single most important thing he works on is uncovering what it is they are passionate about. Keith believes that we are all capable of great things but we tend not to try new directions. Unless we release our emotions and uncover our passion, we will find setting a new course for the future very difficult. Keith strongly believes everyone should continue to learn and relate that learning to the work environment.
