Hello world! Petsmart stopped it’s relationship with Vixxo and, as a result, I was told that I was could either move to a different project or be laid off. I decided that I would accept the lay off and allow myself to move in new directions. Since then I have interviewed with companies which have cultures which more closely represent me for jobs which use more of my native genius.
That has been good, so far. I have done a couple of one-off jobs setting up marketing campaigns in Infusionsoft, found a place to get free SalesForce certification and support for vets, and made a lot of networking choices.
The time since I have been laid off has been interesting from a personal perspective as well. Jenny and I started working through The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, a method of minimization and organization. That has lead to MANY trips to the Goodwill, Bookmans, and numerous friends who want items we are discarding, and there is still a ton to do.
Additionally I have been reading through Getting Things Done, an approach to, well, getting things done, that I think will work well for me.
Until next time!
