I hope that this finds you well.
Me, I am doing very well. This last spring I was headhunted. Truly a moment out of the movies. An anonymous caller on the display. The familiar voice of an old client. A generous offer of employment with a reputable software company. Doing what I do best – helping others!
The offer was very generous. I weighed your need for those few hours each spring, the value of your smile and the warmth of your good buy till next year. I creaked and stretched these old bones, scanned the neglected garden and looked longingly at the cloth stash in the back.
Time for change.
I took the job. Since the end of May I have been employed full time with ComVida Corporation a made in Canada software company. My new work is fun, challenging and a full bent learning environment.
I need to let go of my sole proprietorship. I haven’t yet finished the year off for my tax returns so once they are finished so am I. For 23 years I have processed details of your lives and others like you. I have seen what works and what doesn’t. Young and old, each has its place in our society. And I have grown thought it all. You have been a wonderful teacher and for that I thank you.
I have learned that each moment is precious. And those who are close to me I have tended to neglect the most during tax season. I now find that I need more time for my self and my loved ones so I bid you farewell.
To my word press readers – I am posting this here for feedback. I haven’t yet sent this out or told many that I am closing my business. I have been so busy working full time and running my business after hours. First I wanted to ensure that the job would work – there was a reason for being self employed for 23 years. And now I just need to finish the year before I can truly rest in the security of full time employment. And Sewing!
