Busy, busy, busy.
When I joined Carbon IQ I had certain ideas about what I would do: I would do things my way. I would create schedules that made sense. I would do unstintingly quality work. I would speak honestly and openly with my coworkers, and politics and game-playing would not exist and above all I would remember that we are all human begins, and a business is there to support the humans who work for it, not the other way around.
A small company is the hardest work I have ever done in my life, and I have never learned so much either– I have no question I’m a better IA for it, as I understand business issues viscerally. My empathy for a businesses need to survive is at an all time high…
I wouldn’t trade this opportunity for anything in the world. It’s been scary, frustrating and awakening. These have the best six months of my professional life. I look forward to the future. Thanks, Noel and Gabe!
