After a three-month “sabbatical,” I’m excited to announce that, on September 16th, I’ll be rejoining Inbox Group as Vice President of Marketing.
I’m thrilled for the opportunity to once again work with Chris Donald. I’m energized about having a direct impact on the growth and success of the company. And, I’m also very happy to be coming back to an email marketing industry that I have grown to love and in which I know I’ll thrive once again.
When I learned that the move to Virginia was likely to happen, Chris was my first phone call. I didn’t expect it to turn into conversations about a return to Inbox Group. But it did. And I’m all the better for it. (Hopefully, Chris thinks he is, too.)
How did your sabbatical go?
When you end up having three months off, you have time for reflection. And while I’m glad I took the time off (though my wallet and credit cards aren’t), there are several things I learned:
- I am now capable of successfully orchestrating a cross-country move, including hiring movers, renting/setting up a new house, becoming a landlord, etc.
- It’s hard to write when you’re not really pushed into heavy thought by your day-to-day activities.
- I’m not very good at being what my wife began to affectionately call a “househusband.” I can cook and clean just fine; it’s just not something I want to do every single day as my job.
- I need to work. If nothing else so I know what day of the week it is.
So, there you have it. We’ve settled into the new house, the kiddo is doing well as her new preschool, and I have gainful employment.
I do have a few more days of “freedom,” but I’m excited to be back into the fold. I look forward to seeing many of you back on the conference circuit very soon!
