The end of the world is over. It didn’t happen and the world is not going to stop turning anytime soon. It’s a brand new year. That means it’s time. Your time, my time, and our time. Time to stop delaying our dreams and to start taking action. Time to be proud of our very real accomplishments of 2012. Time to be grateful about how far we have come. Time to set goals for what is ahead.
Anytime we approach a new goal or experience a major life change, we have to take one step at a time to get moving in the right direction. I would argue that you can only take one major step per year. Last year, that step for me was adjustment.
If anyone would have told me 14 months ago that I’d be living in Denver, I would have looked at them like they were nuts. Today, I’ve been here for almost a year, and absolutely love it.
But it took a lot of time to adjust to a place that I had only been to twice before moving to it. Employment and my major needs were met from the beginning, but it’s always difficult to start out somewhere new and create your space and your path. I’ve done my best to lead my team at ServiceSource (stock ticker SREV) through our challenging account, get involved in the Denver community, make friends, build a network and pursue my passions.
I created Gay Ambition Blog (GAB), released 9 posts, and moved it from WordPress to it’s own domain (which was challenging for me, a non-technical person!). I interviewed four people, three of those interviews are out already. And I’m excited for what is to come with GAB in 2013. Expect more posts. Expect more interviews. Expect contributing writers. Expect new forms of media: videos, podcasts, etc. Expect themes.
And please connect with me if you or someone you know is a good candidate for an interview. GAB is going to cover a broad range of topics this year, including: dreams, employment, unemployment, entrepreneurship, geographical obstacles, education, social media & being fearless.
Thank you for taking the time to visit the blog, and I promise valuable content in this coming year. Any feedback is always appreciated.
Cheers to you and the step you decide to take in 2013.
