After climbing the ladder, project manager Andrew Grossi missed the creative part of being an architect—designing. In 2002, he decided to make a career switch to become a boat designer. He set up a plan and started taking courses in boat design. Unfortunately, the 2009 recession threw a wrench in Andy’s plan, and eventually, it took him two tries and some 15 years to make his career switch.
In this episode, Andy tells us what kept him motivated, how he broke into a new industry in his 50s, and how he is back to learning and growing as a novice boat designer—and loving it.
