Co Owner of Black Mountain
5 Years of Something Beautiful
Today a Facebook notification popped up, "Your Memories on Facebook", dated June 28, 2012: "Tomorrow is my last day working in book publishing, after eight wonderful years. Thanks to all of those who shared it with me: it was never well paid, often absurd but always fun - you guys were awesome".  I often wonder what it is about me that didn't work in a corporate space and why I never progressed much. I suppose I chopped and changed roles and companies many times, learning as I went, meeting amazing people, but there was something about my career that always made me feel stifled and frustrated. Like I was just swimming the race, never really excelling.

Oh, not to mention trying to make a business work in two different cities as well.
