My Life Is Going To Change Forever.

Damn, that sounds dramatic.

But it kind of is.

In that, next week, I will be leaving my company. My real-life work company, the one I currently co-own and have built with my business partner for the better part of a decade.

We have told staff, we have told colleagues, and now I am telling you.

It feels… weird.

I’m planning to explore other things, the things I haven’t had time to do, which is exciting… but it is also like leaving a family of friends, not to mention a circle of co-workers who are extremely talented at what they do.

Clearly I have some thinking, some planning, to do – and as usual, a bunch of that will spill over, here. But some of it, I will hold tight inside, my own special treasure – because when you have worked so hard for something, you want to savor it.

    A big step, but exciting! Best wishes for your next great adventure 😀

    Holy crap. On the introspective side, doors close and windows open – especially with your brains and talent. On the irreverant side, can you pretty please do American Idol recaps in all the newly found spare time you’ll have? You nail it every. single. time. 😉

  5. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Kim, that made my night.

    And Maxwell – *2 weeks,* AI will come back here, OK???

    thanks you all for your kind words. 🙂

    Best Wishes my friend….I know it has been a long road, with lots of twists and turns…

    Good news…maybe you won’t look like a teenager anymore…{wink wink}

    Good luck on your new adventure! I quit my job when we moved and decided not to get another one right away. I have since spent a lot of time thinking, exploring and enjoying. It’s wild and totally worth it.

  9. ExtraordinaryMommy

    I’m excited for this change for you…. I’m happy you will be taking a deep breath and allowing yourself the time to process the things in your heart. I don’t imagine it will be easy – but I have faith in you! Sending hugs my friend….

  43. chloebear

    I have no doubt that an even more brighter future is in your horizon. Remember, I was there when you started this company – perhaps with even more trepidation since it was something so new for you. This time around I think it will be somewhat easier.

    Wow, how exciting! I know whatever you do is going to be amazing.

    Again, thanks for all the nice words and support. You all are awesome.
