Once upon a time a young college student named Bill decided to become a schoolteacher.

Every day he went to school with great joy and taught his students.

But one day he followed an urge to do something different, and he became a piano tuner.

Because of that Bill was able to run his own business for years and years, which he loved.

Because of that, though he was happy with his decision, Bill’s finances were sometimes precarious.

Because of that, when The Great Recession hit, Bill found himself on the verge of bankruptcy.

Until finally Bill decided, reluctantly, to return to teaching, and eventually found a great school.

And ever since then he has discovered that he is a great teacher, and loves his work.

Once upon a time, I wanted to be a journalist.
Every day in college, I worked and studied to attain this goal.
But, one day, a financial crisis struck, and the economy took a tumble.
Because of that newspapers found it difficult to be sustainable.
Because of that newspapers cut wages, eliminated jobs, and even folded.
Because of that I was boxed-out of the industry.
Until finally I found a job in e-learning.
And ever since then I’ve worked and studied in the e-learning industry.
