Tomorrow is my last day in the office at BigPark, the Vancouver company that I work for. The jet-setting lifestyle between Vancouver and California has been pretty interesting, but it seems that it may be coming to an end.
I have a lot of hope for the company, and remain a big supporter financially and intellectually. We have a great team and some great products in the pipeline. I expect I will be doing a fair bit of consulting in the coming months for our initial product launch and transition network operations.
What’s next? I will be in Vancouver another month, enjoying the rest of the summer and packing up my apartment, then heading back to California. For the first time in years, I do not have a job. And this is intentional. My goal is to take at least a year off having a day job so I can relax, travel, and work on a few personal projects.
I’m nervous about this big change, and a little sad about this transition. I know there will be a lot of things I will miss. Yet, I’m excited with anticipation about what the future will bring. And we’ll see if having free time makes me lazy or drives me crazy.
