Embracing Life’s Adventure: My Journey From an Academician to an Entrepreneur

Are you seeking security or adventure?

Adventure has always called out to me, much louder than the beckoning of security. The latter might entail a 9 to 5 job and the comfort of familiar surroundings. But the former? It promises an exploration of the unknown, an opportunity to constantly evolve, and the exhilarating thrill of novel experiences. This is why I’ve chosen to tread the path less taken, embarking on a diverse career journey that includes being an academician, researcher, telecommunications manager, and entrepreneur.

The Joy of Solo Travel

There’s a profound pleasure in discovering new places, and doing so alone adds an extra layer of allure. The solitary nature of these trips allows me to immerse myself more deeply in the experiences, unfiltered and unhindered by the perspectives of companions.

I’ve roamed through the busy city streets and quiet countryside of numerous countries, each journey teaching me more about the world and, in turn, about myself. I’ve felt the pulse of various cultures, tasted the flavors of foreign cuisines, and discovered the beauty of centuries-old historical sites. These experiences have not only broadened my horizon but also deepened my appreciation for diversity.

Diving into Entrepreneurship

Just like the thrill of setting foot in a new country, diving into entrepreneurship has been a roller coaster ride, filled with exhilarating highs and challenging lows. It is a test of resilience and innovation, a constant journey of learning and adapting.

Understanding the needs and wants of both customers and vendors has been a particularly enlightening experience. It has taught me to balance the scale between fulfilling customer expectations and respecting vendor capabilities. This journey, filled with unique challenges, has also revealed to me the pain points of being an employer and the joy of successful business milestones.

Being an IoT Thought Leader

As an entrepreneur, my ventures have led me towards the path of Internet of Things (IoT). The industry is still nascent, teeming with possibilities, and ripe for revolution. This has provided me the opportunity to educate the younger generation about the potential of IoT and nurture their innovative ideas.

The thrill of being an IoT thought leader lies in exploring the technology’s infinite potential and guiding others along the way. It’s about problem-solving on a grand scale, developing solutions that can simplify lives, boost businesses, and even reshape cities.


Choosing a life of adventure over security has its challenges, but for me, the rewards far outweigh the trials. Whether it’s exploring a foreign country, navigating the demanding world of entrepreneurship, or leading the charge in IoT innovation, every step in this journey has been filled with invaluable lessons and experiences. I wouldn’t trade this adventurous life for anything else. Adventure, after all, is the best way to learn, grow, and truly live.
