Buying into the corporate vision of the big cars, medical cover, and the big office with the PA and secretary working overtime to support him, he started studying to be a lawyer.
That was his dream.
Huzefa Kapadia joined up with all the other eager and soon to be rich and successful lawyers, and for the next seven years followed the path that he had created for himself.
He was a man on a mission.
But what happens when that mission turns out to be the wrong one?
What happens when you realise that the passions inside you screaming to get out are not aligned with the day to day life you have built for yourself?
Well that happened to our Huzefa, after a travelling sabbatical in 2013, when he came to the realisation that he wanted out of the legal rat race, and instead find the thing that lights him up inside.
So what was the path that he selected for himself?
And why did the legal rat race not turn out to be the path to gold that he had imagined it was going to be?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Huzefa Kapadia
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he was always having big ideas, but never saw them through to fruition….until now!
How he totally believes that you need to change your social group to be able to find true success!
“If you leave your job or change relationships its not going to kill you”…….how true is that!
How he would sit in room as a child creating stories and characters in his head, leading to his achievement of co-writing his first book!
How his parents were so reluctant for their son to make the leap of faith away from a solid career of achievement!
How it was a stint on jury service that so seduced him to the world of being a lawyer…and blames Hollywood for making it seem sexy!
