The Absent Entrepreneur
By Debbie Goodman-Bhyat, an EO Cape Town member and CEO of Jack Hammer Executive Headhunters
In early 2013, at the age of 42, I embarked on a proper mid-life crisis that took the form of wanting to dance again— professionally, on a stage somewhere and with a dance company. In my former career, I was a contemporary dancer, choreographer and director of an independent dance company. I retired at the grand-old age of 28 due to an injury and being flat broke. I took the business route and embarked on a new career as an executive headhunter.
