Betwixt

I find myself betwixt and between employers, having wrapped up my tenure with Sherman’s Travel on Thursday and poised to begin anew with Travelocity tomorrow.

When I started with Sherman’s Travel I was the fourth employee and we were squeezed into a tiny and dismal office with a view of a sweatshop, a brick wall and an alley. Three and a half years later it’s a multimillion dollar business with a huge online presence and a terrific magazine (the office has a nice view too).

It was a great experience being a part of a start up company, to be an active participant in its growth and its successes. But when a good opportunity comes a knocking… well you’ve got to answer the door.

So on this weekend I find myself betwixt and between employers - nervous, but also excited by the opportunities ahead.
