Great post Alex. I would have to agree that you and Scott are very different but you are a great team to work with (and for).

599 weeks ago @ Texas Startup Blog - Quit your job today? · 1 reply · +1 points

I always saw this as being less about literally quitting your job and more about taking full control of your time, money and career.

That means being fully aware and owning the following:
*Your strengths - what you do well and how you're an asset to your company or department
*Your weaknesses - what you do not do well. where you need to grow, where you are a liability to your company or department
*Your trajectory - what you want to do? Do you want to grow in your position? How much time do you anticipate being in your role?

It's no surprise that most of these questions frequently show up in job interviews. If you can answer them well it is clear that you're not just in your job for the paycheck.

I wonder if a lot of this communication couldn't happen via the upcoming website comments?

I prefer the organic nature of the events allowing folks to come and go without their being too much pressure.

I'm sorry that happened Brad. Networking can be tough stuff and sometimes it takes a bit of time to get warm to the venue.

Please come out next time and ask Jennifer or Teresa at the registration table to come find me.

Alex - this is exciting news. Obviously we're going to miss you but I'm sure you won't be a stranger to the startup community.

Best wishes!
