6 Week Hiatus

A lot happened over the past week in my life. My old employer contacted me about an opening for a Project Manager that they were struggling to fill. They only needed someone for 4-8 weeks and they needed them ASAP. The only catch was that it would be onsite with a client in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I'm open minded so I got the full scoop from them and after working out the details I decided to take on the challenge.

I was so excited to leave the corporate environment and that hasn't changed, the idea of a short term challenge intrigues me and I think this will be a great way to keep my professional edge and make sure my political skills don't wan. The other perk is that it's great money. The biggest downer is there will be lots of driving in my future and I won't see much of Roger (who is staying in Orlando) or Chris.

So, tonight I leave for Chicago to get briefed on the client and the project. Then Wednesday it's off to Ann Arbor where I will spend the next 4-6 weeks, maybe more. I figure I will either be so busy with the work and checking out the new town that I will virtually disappear or I will be so bored in the hotel and freezing temperatures that I will constantly be online. Either way, I plan to stay connected. I'm also planning to continue improvments and marketing for my business, The PC Coach, so that when the project is over I'll have something to return to.

We'll see which way it goes. Either way, keep your fingers crossed!
