I'm sure you've noticed I haven't posted much lately. Much like last summer, I've had a lot going on and it's affected my discipline to sit down and write stuff.
But know this, in the coming weeks and months I will have more time.
I'm no longer working in Peterborough. This led to that, and that led to more and the next thing you know, you're cleanin' out the office you pretty much furnished at your own expense.
But that's OK because I had been away from home much too long.
I may look like a dummy, but three years ago when I took the job at Corus Peterborough I decided not to sell the brick palace in Brampton and it was the best thing I could have done.
Oh yea. Once you move out of the big smoke it's tough to move back. Unless of course you're coming back to be a highly paid morning man and those days are in my rear view mirror.
While in Peteborough I rented a small apartment and I stayed there four nights a week, which meant I was away from my darlin' Delyse more than I was with her, and after a while that's just too much.
But hey, I was committed to the job and looked at it as a re-invention and a learning experience. And yes it was. I'm re-invented and I learned a lot.
About management, people and trust.... especially trust.
I will miss the crew in Peterborough. They are a great bunch. Especially the youngins, of which there is a very talented group headed for big things if they're allowed to develop with the proper influence.
Needless to say, I've got some great stories to tell, the radio biz is a fascinating one but I'll enlighten you at a later time when it makes sense.
In the meantime, I'm going to take the next few weeks and spend more time with Delyse and re-adjust to living at home full time again. I love the thought.
I will also think about the next step, and besides talking to a couple of people who have reached out already, I will huddle with a former humble partner and map strategy on an exciting project.
Details in a week or so when I return from the Tin Palace.
And I promise, the same promise I made last summer, and it's a promise I kept, when I return I will blog with a vengeance.
