I loved my career as an actuary and statistician. Otherwise I wouldn't have stayed in it for 25 years with practically the same people from Day 1. Often I would get questions to help others with technology, which was very satisfying.
What wasn't satisfying was catering to unappreciative brokers who often would throw me under the bus just to watch me crawl out from under it. It seemed to be a theme for a couple of them. I always managed to come out on top and hold my arguments with proof of concept, but after it was done, the dirt from the ground started to wear on me.
I had been helping a friend with some marketing technology for her business, started to get more questions from others to help them in their businesses, when suddenly I realized that I needed to figure out how to create courses and teach others.
