There must be something in the air. Today I handed in my notice and I leave in mid-september. After four years at Boulder it wasn't an easy thing to do, I love my job here and have a lot to be proud of.|
I'm off to start my own company. Based in Wiltshire (which means I can live with Ruth) offering personal development in the outdoors. I've got three months to sort out an office, build a brand, find an accountant and recruit some staff. Then of course I need to find some customers. I also need to rent out our house and and move my stuff. The company will be called "Totem Personal Development" and will provide similar services to that which I do already, but with my spin on them.
I'm pleased I've done it. Like all hard decisions, the answer was obvious but taking the action was hard. I work much better to a deadline and now I have one.
I am certain the next couple of years are likely to be some of the hardest of my life but I am looking forward to them. I have felt the need to get my teeth into a big challenge for a while now and now I have one. I shall, no doubt, pester many of you for favours over the next few months and I want to make it clear now, I will not be offended if you cannot oblige.
Here's to a busy but successful future.
