Business Intelligence, the lover of a career changer, is the most popular career path for someone who wants to switch to software career.

Just like Michael said,

I choose transit to Business Intelligence because I can transfer my existing statistics, analytics, sales and marketing skills to the BI field.

Michael is a current participant on the BI Data Analyst Job-Ready Programme and he started to blog about his day to day life at Industry Connect.

He used to work as a dental professional from 9-5pm, sales, and marketing coordinator and currently a real estate consultant.

I spent 10 years to get my dental and information minor degree at Otago university 4 years ago

Back then I was a grumpy dental professional

I HATED the job, everyone minute of it

because I was letting my lower self running my life based on the social norms and expectations of society and family.

I only worked for about 1 year then I quit.

It was one of decision I have ever made and never look back since then.

Now I am more fulfilled and happier than ever with the most loving people around my life and mingle with all the like-minded lifelong learners, risk-takers and unconventional entrepreneurs.

He hated it. He realised his true passion is in technology.

He started this site to talk about a lifelong learner and dedicated professional proactively design life, learn in public on business intelligence as an immigrant and other high incomes skills through blog and vlog in bilingual Chinese and English.

He was lost as he didn’t design his life.
