I’ve noted a couple times this year that one of my goals for 2017 was a new role in my career. I have news on that front. I’m no longer working for my former employer. The reasons are varied, and many people have asked me why. And I even had a couple paragraphs here saying a bit about that, but now that I’ve been gone a couple weeks, I don’t even feel the need to say what little there was. It is just time for something else.
So this leaves me in a position of deciding what to do next. And I’ve decided to spend 3-6 months working on my own projects. I’m going to write a couple mobile apps. I’m going to create and sell some jewelry. I’m going to pursue a few consulting projects. And at the end of the summer, I’m going to see if any of those have turned into something worth continuing further. If they have, I’ll do so. If not, there are plenty of jobs in my area, and I’ll just have to get one.
