If you follow me on my personal Facebook page, you may have seen I posted that Loree is changing jobs. Loree has been at her current job for over 9 years and making a job change after all the time is difficult for many people, including Loree. The decision for her to make this move was not easy for her. Just the interview process for this job took over 3 months. While I was there to “coach” and advise her through the pros and cons of changing jobs, it was ultimately her decision. Personally, I believe that this change is good and will allow Loree to elevate her career and the opportunity that she has in front of her…the sky is the limit. Plus the bump in salary is an added bonus.
As I sit here in Kauai, HI on vacation I have some down time to reflect on the past. As many of you many know, I am here with my wife Loree to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary. While I am so happy being married to Loree for these last 5 years, I must say that it hasn’t always been wine and roses.
As in marriage, business is not always perfect. In life and in business we do make mistakes. We know from experience that we should do our best not to make those mistakes again in the future but sometimes we do.
I recall a few years ago when I first started coaching I was asked to help interview and hire a sales person for one of my most successful clients. I was more than happy to based on my experience of hiring people. We interviewed a number of candidates over the phone and then chose 3 to interview in person. The candidate I preferred may not have had the most experience but they were the one I felt was the most “hungry” for success.
This week I read an article in MSPmentor written by my friend Joe Panettieri titled, “HTG Peer Groups Dallas: How’s Your Home Life?” It really got me thinking about my life, travel and time away from work. As an MSP Business Coach, I travel a lot for my work. Because of my job I spend a good amount of time away from home working with the partners that I coach or attending conferences.
Those of you who follow my personal Facebook and Twitter, also know that I love to vacation in Hawaii with my wife Loree. As a matter of fact, Loree and I are leaving this Saturday for a week-long vacation to Kauai, HI to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary Loree, I love you for these 5 amazing years.
