Today I disappointed my father. I told him that I was leaving the family business. I did this once before in 2007 (and spent 2 1/2 years in London) but he convinced me to come back last year. However after 15 months back, I am certain in my own mind that it is not what I want to do and need to do something challenging and interesting to me. I've been negotiating a new job for about 4 months, but today was the day I had to finally break the news. A very tough conversation, but it's done. So it would seem, Singapore here we come.
Moral of the story: hard conversations with family who are going to come out disappointed are not fun.
