One of the hardest things I've ever done

I tossed and turned most of the night. I knew the day had arrived to do one of the hardest things I've ever done and do it for the first time, ever. It was with mixed feelings that I approached the phone this morning to make the phone call to my boss to give my two weeks notice. I like my boss. I like his boss. I like all the managers that I'm directly involved with at Mitel. It feels like we're a family. We've been through quite a bit together over the last decade. That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger and brings you closer. That's what has happened to the group of people left at Mitel, we've become a close knit group and my heart was very heavy.

I haven't been able to blog about any of the goings on regarding changing jobs until today. I am excited to be moving to a new growing company where I know I will make great contributions and continue to grow and learn. I'm thrilled to have a slew of new challenges ahead of me but I'm also sad to be leaving Mitel where we all kind of grew up together. We all learned VoIP from the ground up, lived through dozens of layoffs and years of hard times but sometimes opportunity knocks and you must answer. I decided to answer the door and I liked what was on the other side.

I hope that all my Mitel colleagues wish me well and know that I will miss each and every one of them.

I've been thinking about you this week and wondering how it went. This is an exciting new opportunity for you and I know you'll be fabulous at it. I'm right there watching you! ::putting on binoculars::
