Monday, my job was terminated. Tuesday and Wednesday were spent entirely just catching-up with people via e-mail and phone. Some of it was bona fide business development and there are some questions that keep coming up that I decided to just publicly answer for anyone who wants to know.
My time at the University of Michigan is over and I posted that change in LinkedIn as soon as I returned home from my final day at work. An unbelievably large number of people who were interested-enough to suddenly look at my profile (lots more than usual). Hopefully, that will lead to one type of great opportunity or another.
Just in the past two weeks, I’ve had conversations with people in our industry where the very same topic came up and using the almost the same verbiage. I’ve never had quite this thing happen and am convinced these people don’t know each other. It’s so creepy and weird that I had to share this.
In honor of yesterday, May 4th (May the Fourth Be With You!), I received a SQL Server-related blog post, “SQL Server: The dark side of NVARCHAR.” I just thought this was so fun that I’d share it, even if it’s a day late.
I’m now about knee-deep in my mobile application development tasks. Being somewhat involved now in a couple things, I realized they’re good examples of how two things that sound similar can be so different.
From leaving my business listed in my LinkedIn profile as current, many kind people have congratulated me for my 21-year anniversary at GeoMetrick Enterprises, last month. It seems a bit sad receiving all these good wishes when I’m no longer really involved with this.
Finally, yet another of the awards GeoMetrick Enterprises was slated to win has come through. Ironically, though, not until after the company has moved from the Cleveland area. Still, an award is an award. Read more, here: GeoMetrick Enterprises Receives 2017 Best of Cleveland Award Gloria Metrick GeoMetrick Enterprises http://www.GeoMetrick.com/
Despite going off to take a full-time job, I did say I was going to keep working on updating the GeoMetrick Enterprises web-site. There are a few reasons that I’m taking the time to do this.
In my previous post, “It’s Time to Say Goodbye,” I mentioned that I was possibly selling the trademark and blog. As it happens, there are people interested but I have struggled to find a way to price it in an appropriate manner. While there are other trademarks I’ve found for sale, they’re not in the same industry, packaged with something besides a blog, and just aren’t quite a good comparison.
My big news for 2017 is that I find it’s time to say goodbye to all of you. I am taking a permanent W-2 job with a local establishment.
