The name is BOLD

19 Sep

I have been promising an explanation for leaving my position at the Dallas BBB. Here it is.

They say if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life, and it was no secret I fell in love with working at the Bureau.  Every day presented new challenges and new opportunities.  We fought the good fight every day next to like-minded individuals that believed in not only solving problems, but inspiring and empowering people to do business better.  There was always something new to learn  I looked forward to work every day and could see how my team and I were making a difference.

In the past year I was the leader in bringing in new businesses and promoting trust in the marketplace  using my fundraising and philanthropic skill set in the area of sponsorships.  This was not the kind of environment where you are “micro-managed”, rather the kind where you were inspired by good “leadership”.  There were some changes in that leadership and I was even a candidate for position of Vice President.  Why would I leave?

“You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” (Zig Ziglar)

A few of those aforementioned inspirational leaders formed a team of brilliant minds and talent within the system and asked me to be included.  They offered me a team and a leadership role that would utilize many of my additional talents while allowing me to bring that leadership and talent to multiple organizations around the U.S. and the world.

Since my arrival I have been able to do more in a week than I used to do in a month, basically doing the same job on a larger scale and it has been keeping me quite busy.  Although I am working with many familiar faces from my post at Dallas and I have brought in some others that I have worked with previously, it is a vital new organization Built On Leadership Development.  The name is BOLD!

My extension is also 0007 (That is 007 with an extra 0 to show I mean business)
