8 Years Ago… I woke up unemployed

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!
