Colleen Carney, Interior Designer
After 10 years at Goldman Sachs Colleen Carney 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 money business.
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 it moving back in with her family. So 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.
