As I was watching Butler roll tonight, I realized that today is the one year anniversary of my departure from Experian. What an experience it has been. What have I learned?
1). Faith in yourself is an important attribute to have.
2). You can tell who your friends are by who calls the day after you leave.
3). Everyone is willing to help by referring you, by acting as a reference, and just caring in general.
4). If you put in a good effort every day, you are one day closer to your next great adventure.
5). The job market is tough for IT management positions.
6). Everything that happens in life happens for a reason.
7). My family has faith in me.
8). The most important brand is me.
9). It’s cliche, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
10). There is life outside of Experian.
11). Faith in God will get you through.
Not a bad list. I have looked at a number of opportunities over the last year. A few worked out and a few didn’t. Whether the opportunity worked out or not, I capured valuable experiences that I will use the rest of my life.
What I thought was a catastrophe has made me a better person. Thanks Experian.
Thanks for coming in today.
