Well I did it, I took the plunge, I have left the ranks of the â€œemployedâ€ to become an entrepreneur. This past Friday was my last day at Microsoft and yesterday was my first day as full-time â€œFounder and Consultantâ€ with my own firm, JobMachine, Inc.
So what am I going to do now? Read on…
Every year on my birthday I take a long look at my achievements and goals. Many people do this on New Yearâ€™s Eve, but for me turning one year older has always been the best occasion to be introspective. What I decided this year is that with all the changes going on in our industry there has never been a better time for me to follow my passions for consulting and training. Iâ€™ve worked on JobMachine.net for almost ten years and have watched it grow from hobby to underground phenomenon, but now itâ€™s time for me to take my own business to â€œthe next levelâ€ and â€œgo big.â€
Today marks the first day of my campaign to revolutionize the research and sourcing industry. Over the years I have trained, mentored (and learned from) many successful individuals, and I have openly shared my knowledge with thousands of people who would listen, but those efforts have mostly been at the grass roots level. I have achieved my goal of being surrounded by some of the industryâ€™s best minds, and been fortunate to have had the honor of learning from and working with companies like Microsoft, Google, Coke, Cisco and Motorola. There has never been a better time for me to get involved with building organizational capabilities at an industry level instead of focusing on one company at a time.
