Well, I haven’t run today, but the sun is peaking out from behind the clouds so it looks like a possibility for tonight.  I’m blogging because I made a big decision today.  Well, I didn’t make it today but I acted on it today.

I gave my two-week notice.  I’m kinda in shock myself.  It was tough, but it was the right thing to do.  I have been tossing this around since January, at least.  Today is the first day of the next chapter in my life and it starts with “goodbye.”   I have yet to hear if they are going to let me actually work my last two weeks and I’ll be fine either way; although, it would be a nice way for me to get to go.  It would mean a lot if I could stick around and say goodbye to the people I’ve worked with for 4 years!

I cried.  I cried when I told my boss.  I cried when I told the VP of Human Resources.  I cried when I told my reps.  I tried really hard not to, but I just couldn’t help it.  Let’s be honest here, I’m a very emotional person.  Who was I kidding trying not to cry?  I got a mixed reception from the people I submitted my two-weeks to.  I don’t know what I was expecting, but I think it went okay.  I was thinking…people really don’t get a lot of opportunities to resign.  This is only the 3rd time I’ve done it.  I’d say that they were all equally miserable.  I’m fine with that.  I don’t think I want a lot practice in that regard.

I am really proud of what I’ve done with the Rangers.  I got to teach people how to sell.  I love sales.  I shattered sales goals personally and as with my team.  I surprised everyone, even myself.  It is definitely time for a new challenge though.  I was asked why I was leaving and I said, “they (the outside reps) don’t need me.”  They don’t…and that makes me most proud.  I gave a lot over the past 4 years and it definitely paid off.  I got to meet a lot of amazing people and, hopefully, teach them a thing or two.

I know I have a lot to offer my next employer and I’m excited to figure out just exactly who that will be.
