“But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.” – Junot Díaz

ABHi – I’m Adele. I started first writing books for Escape the City, a community for people who want to ‘do something different’ with their careers.

I believe that through stories of how others have gotten to where you want to go, it becomes easier to see how you can too. 

I also write for the Huffington Post and work with The Career Psychologist

If you’d like to learn more or get in touch, you can find me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Linkedin.

The Longer Story

After a few years of working in tech startups and learning a lot about commercial strategy through sheer osmosis, I felt like I might like to go to business school. Yet I couldn’t decide whether the decision came from vanity or necessity and the price tag seemed ridiculously high. So I wrote 8 Ways to Escape the MBA debate.

Through Escape the City, I met a lot of members who were lawyers and seemed particularly dissatisfied in their career choice. I had gone to law school for three weeks myself in my early twenties. Dropping out remains one of the best decisions I have ever made and when speaking to members, I would often draw upon the feelings I had during that time. I wanted to condense the books that had helped me with my own decision and so I wrote Leaving Law: How Others Did It and How You Can Too.

I left Escape the City because I wanted to experience and write about topics beyond career change. I now work a corporate marketing job and am also writing Birds on Mars, about some realities of being an ambitious woman in the 21st century.
