Zitat: Uli Marschner, a former advertising agent who quit to start a small neighbourhood restaurant in Berlin, never looked back, either. “I do have some friends who envy me because they see that I love my job and they are working only for their weekends and holidays,” she says. “If you’re not happy, you’re not healthy. And I’m so happy now. I pinch myself every morning.”

“In five years, we will say, ‘[these people are] super Quereinsteiger – we need more of them!’” says Zeitelhack. “It will no longer be a word for black swans.”

Das Beispiel Tobias Schlegl. He was only 17 when he became a television host in Cologne, Germany. He’d been chosen in a street casting and worked full-time in front of the camera for 20 years. But, in 2014, he yearned for a change.

“It wasn’t enough anymore to interview people doing interesting things,” says Schlegl, now 43. “I had to ask myself, ‘What are you doing yourself?’ I knew that I wanted to help people.” So, despite the apprehension of his family, friends and colleagues, he left the TV show and became a paramedic. He’s been happily doing his new job ever since.
