Barry, I never imagined I’d be happier earning less and working harder but it’s true. Moving from the corporate world into a mission-driven organization has been revelatory for me, in so many ways. Thanks for leading me to where I needed to be. I’ve already told all my friends about our work together, so get ready.
I knew I was in trouble when you started asking me questions I couldn’t answer. Thanks for your patience, persistence (hammering me!) and helpful insights. I would have preferred it not take me 4 months to find my new gig, I’m infinitely happier. Barry, good show.
Barry thanks. After 15 years in publishing I didn’t know where to begin. It’s crazy because I’m constantly giving people career advice. Now I’m enjoying the exploration and interview process way too much. It’s a shame I’ll actually have to get a job. Thanks again for the swift realignment I clearly needed.
Seriously, I’m earning more, working less and have never been happier. Not sure how long it will last, but this was definitely the right move for me. Thanks a bunch, Barry, you’re super cool and the direction you gave me was spot on. Cheers!
