New Beginnings are awesome – It’s already been a week at my new job and I am having a blast. After more than 7 years at my old job at Strong and then Wells Fargo (acquisition), it’s great to be doing something different. I love change, especially if it’s the right change for the right reason. I love new challenges and the opportunity to prove yourself all over again and I am getting that in my new position.
I have a lot of great memories from my 7+ years at Strong and then later Wells Fargo, which acquired Strong in January 2005. It was an awesome learning experience and I had the pleasure and privilege of working with an incredible group of people. I miss a lot of people there but it was time for me to move on and I absolutely love my new job. I don’t mean this in a pejorative sense but after working for a large company, it’s great to work for a small company again where you can have an immediate impact. Large companies view risks differently as they have much larger constituencies and tend to be a little more risk averse than a smaller, entrepreneurial company. So here’s to new beginnings, a new year (almost), good health, and world peace. 🙂
