What dissent of yours was the most important one in your career?

One of the earliest and most important moments of dissent which influenced my career in the last 10 years was not choosing to study a business degree at university. I chose to study Philosophy instead. This choice went against the conventions and expectations of the time, but it was indispensable to set the foundations to develop sound analytical skills and a critical mind. Learning this at the beginning of my career made me understand that exercising dissent is fundamental to grow professionally and personally.
