You know at least one person like this. This may even be you.

A person who's going through the motions of living. Waking up every morning, dragging himself/herself to work, coming in late most of the time. Someone who's so unmotivated that work becomes a prison he/she seeks to escape from the moment that secondhand declares it's 5PM. Someone who finds no sense of fulfillment or happiness from their career.

Our guest for today, author and motivational speaker JB Borromeo, was such a person. He used to have a lucrative job as an IT professioal working for one of the top companies in the country. It was a job that offered security, stability and luxury. By all appearances, he should be happy and content.

But JB was not happy. After five years of working 8 to 10 hours a day in a a high-stress environment, he felt that he has had enough. He needed to break free from the daily humdrum even at the risk of going broke. He left his job in search of a mission and found it in the underrated world of the academe as an educator. Now, he's purpose is to help his fellow Filipinos break free from the chains of convention that bind them so that they can become the best version of themselves and live their best life.

What's it like to take to make that career change? How did JB deal with the negativity that surrounded his decision? Let's find out in this interview.
