My CEO just made me cry. He’s such a great dude.
Ugh… all the feels right now.
Today is my last day here at work. It’s so bittersweet for me. I’ve learned so much and have been here since the very beginning. It’s been one of the biggest accomplishments of my career being able to see and foster budding talent in the Healthcare industry. There were a lot of sleepless nights, but oh man were they worth it for the BIG wins that resulted.
I’m so proud of the team. I’m so proud of everyone who poured their heart and soul into this. I’m honored to have called them co-workers.
I spent my last day writing salary revision letters. How’s that for leaving on a good note? Being able to give your co-workers raises and pats on the back for a job REALLY well done.
In the past few weeks nearly everyone I’ve hired for these projects has come up to me and said the nicest things. It’s moved me to tears at times. The hardest was talking to my CEO. What a down to earth guy. What a capable leader! They’re lucky to have him.
It’s hard leaving the people - the heart and soul of an organization, but I’m looking forward to where this new opportunity leads me next.
First stop, Cornell University to enroll in a program I’m super excited about and a new work environment, new challenges, a new team, and a good nervousness and anticipation about the future. I’m reinvigorated and can’t wait to hit the ground running tomorrow. I hope that I’m able to contribute as much as I have to my new company as I have here.
Here’s to a new adventure, and lots of love for the people and lessons that have gotten me here.
What an opportunity.
