SO if you know anything about me or have read this blog before you will know that I, until a few days ago worked for FreshBooks.
Yes you read that right when I typed “until a few days ago”. Don’t pretend you didn’t see it cause it was only a line before I re-typed it.
Anyway, I have decided to leave FreshBooks to become the HEAD OF…wait a second, before I tell you what I am up to now it is only right to talk about the job I just left.
FreshBooks was the single best job I ever had (including working for myself) and I have so many amazing experiences because of my time there. I owe so much to the people involved with FreshBooks (the Staff, the Customers and the friends I made along my travels) and know that it is the people I will miss the most….even though I am going to try my best to keep up with everyone…and that isn’t just talk.
I don’t want my departure to hurt or effect FreshBooks in anyway so I hope anyone who liked watching what FreshBooks was up to for whatever reason will continue to do so as it really is a pretty special company and an amazing product…and those who are wondering what this means for the FreshBooks twitter account…I urge you all to still follow as you wont notice a change at all since I haven’t been writing it for a month or more and @rlangdon is rocking the account as well as I ever did because her and I share the same ideas on how to make a really great company twitter voice.
SO there ya have it…and what does it all mean?
Well as of a week ago I started a new role and a new chapter in my career. I am now the Head of Magic, Head of Interesting Stuff or just Head of Stuff (still deciding on the title) for Zoocasa.com
Zoocasa.com is a new way to search online for a home in Canada because it allows you to search by what is really important to you…things like neighborhoods, schools or even shops or services.
…now if you are asking yourself why I would leave FreshBooks (the best job I ever had) to jump over to Zoocasa, I can only really offer you one explanation.
I love a challenge and crave responsibility…Heck, I want to be a household name for my business abilities and not just for being a good kisser, and to accomplish this I need to take a chance.
All this may sound weird but at Zoocasa I am getting the opportunity to build a brand from the earliest possible stage. My fingerprints are going to be all over this and that not only excites me, but also my enormous ego.
SO now that you know what is up with me I invite you to please check out Zoocasa.com as soon as you can…then check it again in 2 weeks and 2 weeks after that because this is going to look more and more like me with every passing month and if I do a good job you get to share my passion and witness my creativity…and if I fail, you can point your finger and laugh…but either way I ask that you watch what I am up to because I pour my heart into everything I do and at the very least I promise it will be an entertaining ride.
