Wow, 2012 has been a year full of surprises and changes. I honestly can’t imagine any more happening. Most of the way through November and so far this year I’ve turned 30, gotten divorced, lost some friends in the divorce, met somebody new, learned who my real friends are, refinanced my house, refinanced my car, put my house up for rent, gone to Seattle, gone to Cabo, gone a little crazy, rediscovered cooking, discovered painting, been promoted to Vice President of Digital Product Management at Vistage, taken ownership of our online product Vistage Connect, gone to Dallas, gone to Erie PA, gone to Columbus Texas, joined Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego, gotten a new “little” and on and on…. What a ride.
What’s the point of sharing all this? I guess for starters it’s my excuse for why I haven’t blogged in so long. Though I think the the truth is that when I started this blog I missed the point. I LOVE technology, I eat sleep and breathe technology, but this blog became busy work, something to fill time when I was bored, and for the most part it’s been boring. I need to pour my soul into this blog. Share my love for technology, share my life, share what I would want to share with my friends. After all, you’re the only ones reading it 😉
From the work standpoint I am VERY excited by the changes. I honestly think I can help my company realize a whole new approach with digital strategy. There are so many executives out there who NEED Vistage and the coaching we offer because it will help them do better. I look at this from a mission standpoint, if we help more executives that means higher performing companies, more jobs, and a better economy.
From a personal standpoint being divorced is actually a good thing. Why be sad about doing the right thing? So I’ve moved on, I’m enjoying the person I’ve discovered myself to be, and I’m enjoying being around the people I want to be around.
My promise: I will blog at LEAST once a month from now on. This is very cathartic.
