Karina Gentinetta says her career reinvention was a soul-saving move. After Hurricane Katrina destroyed her home in 2005, she continued to work as an attorney and began restoring antiques as a therapeutic hobby. Four years later in 2009, Karina gave up her law-firm partnership and turned that hobby into a business. Having lost everything in the hurricane and having endured financial and family strains, Karina was no longer afraid of change. Commenting on where she is now, Karina says: “I’m seizing moments more than I ever have – I jumped off the cliff, and everything started falling into place.”
Contemplating a soul-saving move of your own? If so, taking up a therapeutic hobby may be just the thing that brings possibility into view.
