Show Objectives - The Why
The year started bittersweet for me personally but also exciting before being dragged down by a once-a-century pandemic. Personally, I kicked off the year walking away from a mid-January ladder fall followed up with shutting down a company after 10 great years of employment.
During this time, I also remained really excited about hanging my own shingle as fractional CFO and financial consultant. I had always been with a corporation previously, so stepping out on my own was a completely new journey. I was ready and willing to go when COVID decided to shut down the world in mid-March and forced me to immediately transition along with everyone else.
I still met, learned from, and/or worked with so many amazing individuals throughout the year that I wouldn't ask for anything different ... well, maybe a little different. I prefer to look at the world in the same light that despite immense setbacks and in too many cases unfortunate loss of life, the world found or was forced to innovate and alter the norm that resulted in direct or indirect positive outcomes.
I don't want to forget 2020, but rather learn from what we experienced and recognize that we are climbing toward the light at the end of the tunnel. Per Simon Sinek ... I would rather walk with my head looking forward than with my head looking down. And instead of worrying about what I don't know or how to take the next step to be confident that if I stumble that I have people with me to pick me up because I promised to do the same for them. I don't believe you can reach the light alone. And that doesn't mean I don't sometimes feel down because of the state of where we are or feel bad ... just tired, exhausted, and my knees are hurting and the thing that solves all of that is someone that says I got your back."
