Hello everyone! Felt like saying hi after my 20 month hiatus from blogging. Actually, that’s not entirely true. I’ve been blogging all along, just not here. I’ve been blogging here instead. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t even updated my website with all of the cool stuff I’ve been doing lately either. Well, I am taking a break of sorts.
I was going gang busters with speaking gigs, client meetings, partnerships, networking groups, guest blog posts, interviews, media appearances and book writing until I realized one day that I wasn’t sure where I was heading. I knew I was doing a lot of work and having fun, but I didn’t have a plan anymore. Ever hear the expression, “working IN the business instead of ON the business”? That’s exactly what happened to me. I lost my vision. I was working extremely hard and loving it, but lost track of the goal.
So, I took a step back and decided to put everything on pause. I’ve come up with some sweet plans since then (which are super top secret), but I’m sure this is not the last you will hear of me. Until I resurface with a new business or master plan, catch me causing trouble on the Career Blog at the UMass Amherst Alumni Association. I’ve been having fun interviewing alumni, giving advice, and meeting people doing very cool work.
I hope you have been enjoying life and taking time to reflect and focus on what’s important to you. If not, why not take tonight to do that? Might shed some light. Peace for now!
