I broke away from my old gig last summer. I knew things were rock-bottom bad with the company and it had taken a toll on me; personally and professionally. I witnessed what years of bad business practices did to my immediate superiors and my colleagues in the trenches with me.
My fears were validated during my LOA (that’s a Leave of Absence) when I received the call from HR saying my position (and many, many others) were being immediately phased out. “Business is, ah, difficult”, said Bob. The office itself scheduled to be shuttered July 15th.
Onward and Upward. I’m loving my life. It’s full of challenges. I’m enjoying myself for the first time in years. Like others before me, I started my own company. I am consulting and art directing, creating amazing/fun products again. Projects are varied. I’m also lettering comics on the side- a lifelong passion! The convention scene has been kind to me. Seeds are sown and all my problems are very good ones to have.
So here is an offer to my friends, new and old: Invite me to anything. I have the time. Coffee, comics, drinks. If it doesn’t conflict with Karate or family engagements, I’ll be there.
