Hi everybody,

My name is Linde. I am a Dutch neurobiologist (moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) and worked as a scientist for ~10 years.

Although I very much enjoyed it (it didn’t really feel like a job, it was more like a lifestyle) and learned a lot, it took up all my time. I never had time to do other things when I wanted to or even go on a holiday. Working in a lab we get time for vacation, but nobody ever uses it all, because there is always too much work to do.

Then a couple of years ago I found out I was seriously ill and while I was still recovering from brain surgery (August 2018), my contract ended (March 2019). So that’s where I am now, a bit of a special case, maybe. The good thing is that I finally had to take a step back and review my life. I got confronted with how short life can be (luckily my surgery was successful) and realized something has to change if I want the freedom to enjoy the rest of my life the way I want it.

So, unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of energy, so my “Fastlane” is not so fast at the moment, but as fast as I can :)

My husband advised me to read The Millionaire Fastlane (he has a small business), which was very inspiring. I can’t wait to start reading “Unscripted” as well and to start using this forum.

As a scientist, getting ideas is hopefully not a problem, but I don’t have any business experience (never worked for a company), so starting/running a business will be quite a challenge. I think this forum can help me with that and I look forward to using it. Hopefully, I can give some input myself

Glad you've recovered successfully from brain surgery! If you don't have a ton of energy right now, just do the best you can and be kind and patient with yourself. All you can do is all you can do, right? Welcome to the forum!
