I announced my departure to my company. The reaction was initially shock, then jealousy, but overall positive. We’re working through the logistical details of my separation. We also accepted an offer for our house in a private market transaction which surfaced when we briefly listed the home late last year. If this closes as planned, we’ll be homeless beginning April 30. Both the home sale and separation from my company have brought the reality home. I had some good news from a long-time client who wants to keep me engaged with their family. Seems like this might work with agreement from my company (you know, non-compete issues and all that), overall could be a win-win. The few clients who know at this point have been embarrassingly complementary of me. Nice to have clients and friends. Anyway, the stone is rolling – no moss gathering (at this point).
