8 years ago I was laid off. Friday the 13th was my last day at my job (get the irony there?). On the 14th I’m sure my head was spinning with ideas and emotions. I was excited and scared.
I had no idea what the future had in store for me.
Looking back on the last 8 years I can see ups and downs. It has been a heck of a ride. I’m glad that I was given the chance to start and run JibberJobber, and for the help and encouragement I got along the way. My team came together quickly, the financing happened without pain, and my experience up to that point was what I needed to make this work.
I’ve seen about 5 competitors come and go since we launched JibberJobber.
I’ve also come to understand that this is my calling right now. That can change, but for now I am meant to be in this role. Frankly, I thought I would be somewhere else by now (acquired), but I’ve realized that the timing just wasn’t right yet. My work is not done. I have not learned, or served, enough.
And so I continue. And I have big, lofty goals and dreams. I don’t know the time-frame of when things will happen, but I’m anxious to make sure I give it my all while I can.
Thank you for being a part of this journey!
