Change is as good as a holiday especially in the bush
"There are two aspects on a personal level when it comes to change. It is either embraced or it is the one thing many of us fears the most." Change really is as good as a holiday, but even more so when this 'holiday' is in the bush!
WIllie had the privilege to spend some time with James Copland, a 25-year-old guy from Durban in South-Africa, one of our PFG (Professional Field Guide) yearlong students while he was visiting EcoTraining’s Mashatu Camp in Botswana.
Change was something that did not come easy for James, change had knocked on his door quite a few times. But in this specific case, change was good.
After finishing school James went to study English & Advertising. After his studies, he started working for a big advertising company to then being employed as the Marketing Director for a boutique hotel in Cape Town. Then a ‘change’ came again and he started doing renovations & plumbing.
After that James moved back to Durban, his hometown & after a couple of months of dealing with some major changes in his life, started working as a project manager for a construction company. Until the final change to where he is now, having studied with EcoTraining, and becoming a Professional Field Guide. As you can see change made its appearance on numerous occasions.
