After five years of blogging about career change, job search, job interviews, and work in general, I’ve decided it’s time for my own career transition. And so this will be my last post on Work Coach Cafe … at least for the foreseeable future. Luckily, cafes are warm places where one can drop by if the urge strikes; and I’m assured by the new owner that the door is always open for me. A nice thing.
I’d like to tell you a little about the new owner because she’s someone I know and respect greatly. And I’m very happy that she has just bought the blog that I’ve put so much time and love into. For those of you following the story, there was another owner this year who helped this blog grow and supported me throughout. The new owner, whom I’d like to tell you about, asked that I also stay on. But while I still care deeply about this blog and my dear readers – and all the wonderful people I’ve met along this journey – something is telling me it’s time to move on. And so I will honor that voice inside, which has been such an important resource throughout my life.
As I said, I’d like to tell you about the new owner because I’m such a fan, but she’s asked me to let her speak for herself. And so I shall. You’ll know soon enough. All I will say for now is that she is a respected career professional who puts her heart and soul into helping folks. And I know she will bring new blood and new ideas to a blog whose purpose has always been, and I am assured will continue to be, a place to find down-to-earth advice, comfort and solid career and job search information.
As I sit here, about to leave behind something I created and then nurtured for so many years, I am moved by what this blog has meant to me. And by how many of you have been there to support me, including all the wonderful readers who have not only offered words of advice and comfort to others, but to me too.
And so, while I am indeed sure that it’s time for me to move forward, I am not leaving without very warm memories of all of you and wishes for your own success. Please feel free to stay in touch. And please feel free to listen to that voice inside and follow your own dreams.
