'I quit my job and sailed around the world'
I had spent my whole life doing what I thought I ought to do and I’ve spent the last four years actually doing what I wanted. There were tough times but the good days outnumbered the bad. I will never regret going as I’ve had the most fulfilling years of my life. In 2010, I was running my own consultancy firm in South Korea. I was under a lot of pressure. I had already had a stroke some years previously. Walking to the office one January morning in the driving snow, I decided I had had enough.
