ch-ch-ch-changes...

okay, who's channelling David Bowie, here?

Change. it happens, and sometimes it's good, sometimes not so much. I've written here before about changes at work, where we let go a large number of people. The company has rebounded - there's still some things that need to be worked out, but all in all, there are some positives coming out of it.

Yesterday, we had a few more changes. A couple more people were let go - nothing too surprising, these were people who's bad attitude never improved, and when most people are working their asses off to help the company succeed, those that don't stand out like sore thumbs. Well, the sore thumbs were amputated. And then, the shifting occurred. They've done a pretty big re-jigging of people and responsibilities.

What this means for me is that I have switched departments, from Sales to Licensing/Marketing. Good for me, but I'm going to miss the camaraderie of the Sales Department. The good thing is that I will still have contact with a number of people in this department. The really good thing is how pissed my current (Sales) boss is about losing me, and how gloatingly happy my new boss is about getting me. The Sales Director extracted a promise from the Marketing Director that I be made available for setting up processes when needed.

It's nice to be loved.

So, I'm looking forward to new challenges, and new relationships. I love working here and I'm committed to doing what I can to help get us through some tough times.

Posts may be less frequent - I'm busier than ever, learning about my new job, and to be honest, there's only so many in-progress pictures I can show of one sweater anyway.
