(I hate goodbyes.)
As some of you may have heard, I’m leaving RevBuilders. Before you make any assumptions, I wanted to let you know: it’s not because I hate my job, or dislike RevBuilders, or have personality conflicts with Scot. Simply put, I was offered a job at a non-profit, and ministry/non-profits are where I’ve always wanted to be. It’s where my heart’s been for a long time, and when the opportunity came up, I was excited.
I have to admit, it’s been a sort of bittersweet situation. I’m eagerly looking forward to helping this organization and beginning the next part of my career, but I’m disappointed to be leaving a great team of talent and ideas. Scot has taught me quite a bit, as have many of our customers, as well as my fellow team members. I’ve made leaps and bounds in terms of my skills and knowledge. There have been ups and downs, but when you’re constantly learning, it’s a lot more up than down. So although I’m excited about this opportunity, I’m sad to leave RevBuilders.
I was reflecting on my little over two years here at RevBuilders, and thought I’d take a moment to share with you the top five things I’ve learned at RevBuilders:
- Communication Matters: If you aren’t communicating with your client, you aren’t fully serving your client.
- Marketing Matters: You might have the most awesome product on the planet, but if you can’t get the word out, it won’t matter.
- Time and Task Management Matters: If you can’t manage your to-dos and tasks, how will you help anyone else?
- Learning Matters: Never be afraid to learn. Or re-learn if necessary.
- Having Fun Matters: I’m a little crazy.
Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to learn, to grow, and to experience marketing, web design, writing, and so much more. A special thank you to Scot – you’ve been a huge blessing to myself, and to my husband and I.
This actually won’t be my last blog post – I’m working on some more, going to use the ever-awesome scheduler in WordPress to automate the blog posts. However, this is probably my last blog post while I am here. So, I hope the very best for you all, and, as we say in the office, “Rock & role!”*
*The word “role” was spelled intentionally different than “roll”. Ask Scot why.
