Jonathan had been an accountant for 15 years. It wasn’t really what he wanted to do with his life. He was jealous of people who had life figured out from the start. Once being introduced to furniture making his obsession grew and quickly Jonathan started his new career as a cabinet maker. He’s now happy doing what he loves and feel like his work makes a real difference in his own life as well as people he creates cabinets for. It just took a little push.
- Jonathan felt that his life before Cabinetmaking was not his true calling. He wanted a better work life balance.
- Jonathan started furniture school after becoming hooked on watching furniture get made. This was a clear difference from accounting.
- Not everyone can find their true calling right away but having good friends and a healthy lifestyle can lead to positive things.
