    Linda Cruse

    In 1996, Linda Cruse, a stressed-out single mother working in a job she hated, was driving along a motorway in the middle of the night when she suffered temporary blindness. This terrifying episode led to a blinding insight: what is the point of living if living has no point? Determined to make a difference, Linda changed herself and began a new life.

    Took about a year to turn her life around. Resigned a year later – went to workshop about re-connecting to your drive and purpose and is now an international humanitarian aid worker.
