They say 50% of marriages end up in divorce and there is also an increase in the number of people who choose not to marry. Work is also changing and there is a larger number of people who are choosing to divorce their jobs and live a more meaningful life. I am one of them.
After over a decade in corporate America and a company that has grown up (bigger is not always better), I have fallen out of love with the culture and what it has become. I was such a dedicated employee that I feel that I am going through the same process I experienced when I went through my last divorce. I hope this blog helps others facing the same dilemmas and creates a community of like minded souls.

For the past 12+ years I was an executive in corporate America. In March, a United flight that went horribly wrong for this million mile flyer woke me up to the fact that I needed to make a change. And I did. I fired myself as chief strategist for Cisco Canada. Ciscowas a great ride where I worked with many brilliant people (and some assholes too). I am grateful for the opportunity to work on some incredible global teams solving big, hairy problems for the company. I am now living the next chapter of my life.
