I need to apologize. I’ve dropped the ball….big time. I got overwhelmed with a bunch of professional and a few personal changes that all seemed to hit me at once, and I let my blog suffer. July 12th I said I was going to fill you in tomorrow. Well, if tomorrow meant 40 days later, let’s do it!
In May an amazing business friend and mentor Shelly Kramer, founder of V3 Integrated Marketing, responded to one of my ‘catch up’ mentee emails with a proposition that can be summed up like this: “I’m a big fan of yours and want to see you succeed. We have an opportunity we’ve been thinking about creating for you, but you’ve gotta start small.” Fast forward over two months and I’m integrated deeply into the V3 team and loving absolutely every day of it. Shelly, Katy, and crew are amazing to work with. I’m doing a lot of blogging too. Have you checked out our Best of the Web weekly series?
July started off with a double barrel bang!
The first barrel fired: A year worth of walking coffee with Tim Kopp started a ball rolling in May that culminated with a job offer from Exact Target. I’m a full-time on site consultant that is working on the Product Enablement Team focusing on the 3sixty product. I absolutely love my job. The company culture is second to none. The PE team is a collection of ridiculously smart people that work seamlessly with each other, but anyone could go solo for a few days and still kill it. It’s an amazing opportunity that I hope to turn into a ET job (not consultant)!
The second barrel fired: Kristen Nicole has been a dear friend of mine for over four years and is currently is the senior editor at SiliconANGLE. After this guest post on the 4 Obstacles Digital Media Faces, she asked me to be a contributor. It’s an amazing opportunity for me, and combined with the exposure I get from the V3im blog — gives me a very big platform as a writer.
On the personal side I’m getting ready to move into my own place downtown Indianapolis, just a one bedroom sans any roommate. I’ve narrowed it down to three places and plan on moving the first week of September. I’m really excited to get out on my own!
So there it is, I’ve caught you up!
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome baaaaack!
You matter to me. I appreciate your friendship and readership!
