It’s with great sadness that I need to annouce I’m leaving Carbon IQ. Carbon IQ has been an amazing place to work and I hope Noel and Gabe continue to innovate and succeed.
It’s no secret last year was a tough one for consultants, including Carbon IQ. Although they’ve pulled through and have a busy schedule ahead of them, I’m come to realize that the lifestyle inherent in running a small business wasn’t for me.
When you are in a small consulting company, it’s your entire world. Which didn’t leave enough room in my life for other things that are dear to me, such as my husband. He moved eight thousand miles to be with me, only to never see me, which isn’t a very fair deal.
So now my current focus will be to finish the first draft of my book and to starting looking for a new position, one that will let me balance life and work.
I’ll continue to work with Noel and Gabe to spread the IA meme through workshops, cocktail hours and other activities (albeit in a scaled-back fashion). I still love my partners and I’m sure they’ll continue to be successful. They are too smart to do anything else.
I’m looking forward to the next chapter in the book of my life…
