I’m a media executive who has spent more than two decades at the top of his profession. I’ve now started my own business inspired, rather bizarrely, by Hollywood actor and director Ben Affleck whose recent award-winning speeches had the theme of living a ‘Second Act’. It’s never too late, he said, to reinvent yourself. Well here's another 40-something, bruised, bewildered and spurned by Jennifer Lopez, looking to star in his Second Act. And win an Oscar.
It took redundancy – and the naïve wisdom of children – to make me realise that all that’s holding us back is the fear of doing something different. I ought to be more afraid than ever but really I feel liberated. And inspired.
