Strategic Planning

Please forgive me, I have been remiss in updating this week. And what a week it's been! Thank heavens tomorrow is Friday and this craziness will be over. To fill the missing back-log, I've posted some fun things for your enjoyment.

Today was the culmination of weeks of preparation - Our annual Strategic Planning meeting. The board of directors and our leadership team, which includes little old me, had a meeting to assess the business climate and ascertain our long term business goals.

Like every other year, it's all fun and games until the table filled with 20 people or so all turn to me with looks that say, "Now get on it!"

I find it hilarious that we've got 40 employees and yet I'm the only one charged with making a real difference in this organization. It's as if they ride all their hopes on marketing. Although, one of the good things that came out of this meeting was the admission that we need a business development department.

Hopefully I'll be able to justify a new title - VP of Marketing & Business Development. Although, I'm not holding my breath... It's already been 2.5 years without a single performance evaluation.

Guess I'll keep on truckin' and see how all this plays out.
