I am on my way.... out!

It has been a while since I looked at the forum or posted here, but I wanted to thank the forum adminsitrator and* anyone who responded to my posts.* September 30th is my last day at my job.* The bucket* of bullshit just wasn't worth the net worth bucket anymore!*

To say everyone was shocked at work is an understatement.* They even sent out a memo to say that my departure does not mean the place is going under (I was almost an institution there and amongst many jobs, the finance guy).* They are trying to get me to stay even part time, but I hate the place and the situation, so I keep saying NO!* I wish I could say that was easy for me to do, but it is easier than contemplating staying without some ending.

Although there are those on this forum who would tell me I am to conservative, I beleive I still need to work a few more years.* But I can;t say anymore that I don't have the money to take the time to find what I want.

So again, thanks to those who gently (or not so gently) helped me get out of my wage slave mentality.

Congrats!!!* Time and sanity is very important.* Once we have enough to get by with, feathering the nest can still be accomplished.* Been there and left, now doing some time as I chose to feather and add in some fun money.* Would not go back for anything.* Sanity is priceless!*

Re: I am on my way.... out!

For those who don't know, the departure of the corporate finance manager is THE NUMBER ONE predictor of future business setbacks.* That is why the corporate communication, maybe even to the investor relations level.

OP may not have been the CFO but obviously he was high enough in that department to have his departure of interest to others.

Congratulations.* I am confident you can find other gigs.* One of my neighbors was the CFO of a well known Seattle company and now sits on several Boards of Directors and did a stint as a transitional finance manager at a university.* *The fun may just be beginning.

Yes, the Board (BTW its a non profit, not a Fortune 500 company )* and its failure to do something to head off insolvency in the next two years is a BIG factor in my leaving.* I decided I no longer wanted to fight through the denial or suffer the insults because they thought I didn't know "my place".*

Re: I am on my way.... out!

OHjosh...

A request to you and others... who quote someone and then type your response INSIDE THE QUOTES.... PLEASE STOP!!!

You can not tell what is a quote and what is new... type outside the quote.. either on the top or bottom... just a simple request to remove some frustration...

Thanks..
