Prologue Profiles

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews David / Language Learning Entrepreneur (@DavidMansaray) / Gatwick Airport, London.

"I was feeling really sad and unhappy with the life I had in London, this was in 2012, and I felt as though I was sort of in a rat race in the sense that all my money was going towards bills and I didn't feel like I was living a life that actually felt fulfilling in any way shape or form so I made the decision to sell all of my belongings and give up my flat and I moved to Spain, I didn't know what my job was going to be I didn't know where I was going to stay, actually I was reading the book 'The Alchemist' and I was about to go down an escalator and I reached a point in the book that said 'The time to start following your dreams is today, not tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes.' and it really resonated with me and I got my phone out on the spot and I downloaded an application for EasyJet and I booked my ticket there and I said, 'Ok in 3 months I'm going to Spain and I'm going to figure out everything in between.' and it was really scary, really really scary, that's an understatement, but it changed my life and now it's just normal for me to just go for things."
