Two Weeks Notice
Yesterday (Friday), I did something for the first time…. turned in a “two weeks notice” at work. I guess it’s not that big’a deal but-for what it means to me, my family, and the future of PoliticalBank.
Beginning Saturday, August 1, I’m a fulltime employee of PoliticalBank, LLC. A Saturday unlike any other, I imagine. I get asked all the time, “Are you nervous? Excited? [Other]?” Yes.
I love my job. For 2.5 years, I’ve gone to work every day knowing I could make a difference. I dedicated myself to not wasting a day and ensuring the Indiana taxpayers got their money’s worth from me. Admittedly, I’ve had a little senioritis the last few weeks, but here’s why: the passion, excitement and enthusiasm I had on January 14, 2013 – watching the Governor take his oath of office, then following him into his office and watching him sign the executive orders I helped finalize – are exactly the same feelings I have today… typing this blog, looking at the whiteboard in my office, and understanding what needs done tomorrow to move the ball.
I’m sad to leave my job in the Governor’s Office. I doubt I’ll ever have a similar experience or the same opportunities. I enjoy those with whom I work and have much respect for the Boss himself. That said, I can say with confidence, I’m ready for what’s next.
