Is there life after Goldman Sachs?

Meet Colleen Carney:  Interior Designer.

After 10 years at Goldman Sachs Colleen quit to start her own interior design business. As a teenager she had loved decorating  – but hadn’t seen that as a job option.  Hence her years in the world of finance.

In this How I Got Here video, she tells Michael Pollock how she made herself a financial plan and got Goldman Sachs to pay for her schooling.   After another 5 years she finally made the jump.  But was the dream as “shiny” as she had imagined?  It wasn’t easy – but she says she has no regrets and now her new career is well under way.
