Why I’m quitting my job in the global financial services industry
Posted March 03, 2018 06:13:08The last few months have been a blur.
It’s been a whirlwind of highs and lows for me and I’m leaving the banking and investment sector.
I left my post as a Corporate Business Manager at the bank to focus on becoming a better corporate leader and more importantly, a better human being.
This is the third time I’ve done this.
The last time I left, I went on to lead a $10 billion hedge fund in the United States and a $200 million global business.
I’ve learned so much about myself, and the people around me, and how to lead from the heart and be honest with myself.
This time, I’m stepping away from the world of finance to pursue my passion, but this time, to pursue the truth about the human experience, and in the process, make the world a better place.
I’ve seen what it’s like to be treated like a stranger in the world and in my own life, and I can’t believe it.
I’m so thankful to have made it this far.
I love working with the people and the businesses in the company, and have always felt so lucky to be a part of it.
But I’m now also taking a step back to realize what I’ve gained.
I want to thank you for your support and the wonderful things you’ve given me and the incredible people I’ve worked with.
You’re the most wonderful people I know.
If you’re a banker, investment banker, corporate manager, or business manager, this is a chance to get to know me, as a person, and see for yourself why I’ve always been a good manager.
So, what’s next for me?
As of now, I have a couple of exciting projects lined up that will continue to expand my horizons and help me grow in the future.
One is working with a local group of artists and filmmakers to create a documentary that explores the human impact of the financial crisis.
The other is helping a local nonprofit to build a virtual library of stories from people who’ve experienced financial crises to make a powerful resource for people of all backgrounds.
So, if you’d like to stay connected to my work, you can follow me on Twitter @matthewsangel, on Instagram @mickmansangel and subscribe to my newsletter to stay in the loop.
