More formal education? At 53 yo? Yes!
Why I’ve decided to return to formal education
About 3 years ago, whilst “stuck” in yet another corporate job, I woke up. Truly.
I was fortunate to be an early adopter, fascinated always with new tech, new business models, new ways of seeing things.
I had got into crypto around 2013. Bitcoin was trading at $150 at the time; ethereum at $15. The amount staked is not important. Rather, the concept is.
I had a smallish position in a new ecosystem. A digital alternative. I didn’t realise it at the time but as my corporate job drove me, literally, into the ground, I thought “why?”. And “how”.? I knew the “when”…. It was post Uni, years prior.
My point is, at some defining moment epiphany, I realised that my professional & personal future resided elsewhere.

I’m now 55 yo and half-way though a MSc program in Blockchain & Digital Currencies at the University of Nicosia.
I also became an enterpreneur, co-founded a company, successfully sold the company to a corporate and still work there.
Bottom line — mindset, perspective and ACTION are the key to life’s success … at least it has been for me.
