The bank I write for, and have worked at for 16 years, is finally calling it quits. My last day is May 31st.
I'm lucky to have options as a writer. Not many in finance do. Automation has killed a lot of their jobs. We've heard it for years; if your job doesn't involve a lot of creativity, expect software to take over that job soon.
That day came a lot quicker than many expected. Not me, though. I read Seth Godin (so should you).
My immediate plans are to write and photograph like a madman, sharing everything I possibly can with you right here. I'm also helping to start a consulting business for someone else, so I hope this allows me to post as much as I'd like.
Daily posting is the ultimate goal and I'd like to do a lot more books now that I have some time on my side. I'm not expecting this approach to provide my primary source of income, though. Maybe it will in 5-10 years. But for now, I just want to show up more.
