Let’s Work Together In 2018!

Seeking a New Opportunity Starting In January 2018 – Let’s Talk!

I am actively and enthusiastically networking find a fabulous new | permanent role in the New York City or Chicago Markets beginning in January 2018. We are less than three weeks from the start of the new year and I am ready and eager to join a team in 2018 where I can bring my value, continue my growth & self-development initiatives, and drive results, sustainability, and profits for an organization.

I am happy & proud to be able to offer more than simply a difficult-to-verify-list of previous accomplishments or an index of vapid adjectives about my work history and skill set [however, I do have a résumé]. Through my blog, tangible accomplishments [see below], and accessibility I am proactively able to provide you a glimpse into my priorities | passion, leadership & communication styles, values, vision, organizational value, and ability to inspire and motivate dialog, change, and action as a leader that can deliver real and quantifiable results.

I am most interested in piquing the interest of, and landing a permanent role with, an organization that is not so deeply entrenched in the myopic and dangerous status quo that they are fearful of unique and driven talent that can deliver quick, significant, and consistent results to the bottom line. I have an uncommon and extremely valuable background and I am truly hoping that there is an organization that can recognize and appreciate that and invite the type of ambition, truth-telling, and risk-taking that I stand for, into their organization.
