On Late Blooming & Inflection Points with Eleanor
Season 7, Episode 18. Eleanor is a late bloomer. She moved abroad on more or less a whim in the late 1990s, when she was in her late 20s.
Eleanor was working in tech at the time, and although her initial move abroad was rather disorganized, with many misfires and much flying by the seat of her pants, by the time the tech bubble burst in the early 2000s, she was in a good position. She was living in Munich, Germany, working a steady job in web design, so she decided to stay. To bloom.
When she hit her mid-30s, she changed her career and met her husband. They had their kid when she was in her early 40s. And now, Eleanor is approaching her inflection point, or the year when she'll have lived longer in Germany than in her home country (USA). And now, she's here to share the wild story with us and reflect on what it all means.
