I’ve had a fantastic career in the media and digital worlds, so believe me I’m not complaining, but when you’ve been laid off for the fifth – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – time in the last 15 years, you have to think.
Here’s where I’ve come out: I am done being an employee. I am not going to do a great job for one more company and because of a reorg, a downsize, a merger, a shut down, a downturn, a change in strategy or a political permutation end up in the same spot, meaning square one. Nope.
So I’ve decided I’m going to put on my big girl panties and do something on my own. I’m going to pour all my experience and passion, my smarts and my heart into …. hmmm, let me think here … oh, I know – Me and You. I am now an employme.
I’ll share my journey with you right here. I promise to keep it real and tell you about the good, the bad and that not-to-be-believed. I’ll share the steps I take, the books I read, the resources I discover, the experts I consult with and ultimately the business I create. I’ll tell you how it feels and what I think, what inspires me, what scares the hell out of me and what keeps me going.
A sincere thank you to all the companies and people I’ve worked with, even the ones I shake my head about. If not for you, I would not be here. Let’s get going!
