Sharon Au left her management job here at Mediacorp as purveyor of style(xstyle) in February to go on a one year sabbatical in Paris. Her plan then was to take a break from work, enjoy a slower pace of life and travel Europe.

However, after spending two months "being a delinquent just relaxing and not working" in France, the self-confessed workaholic decided to apply for work at an international private equity firm there.

"It was my first interview in Paris and I honestly didn’t have much expectations," the 42-year-old tells us over the phone. "So when they told me that I was hired, I was surprised and excited."

She adds: "I had mixed feelings, though. My plan was to take a break for a year, but now I’m going back to the workforce prematurely (laughs). However, I appreciated the fact that I got the job as I know it’s not easy to get a job these days."

Blue ocean is a space created previously untapped which makes competition irrelevant because it is not contested.
Red ocean is another tiring space where there is competition on existing markets and they try to outperform one another.
