Moving on

Yep, I decided to leave Adobe and move on. Last year the Adobe evangelist team got restructured, I ended up working in engineering and finally got a little time to breathe. I mean evangelism was a hell of a ride for an ‘introverted geek’ and it stretched me to the limit. But I must admit that I loved doing this … well maybe except the crazy traveling.

One Sunday morning I woke up, sat on the edge of my bed and asked myself: “Now WHAT?”. I realized that I really love coding but I also like giving presentations, teaching and what you can generally call ‘knowledge transfer’ activities … and I like also the business side of the technology too. Thus the engineering side only filled up half of it … maybe a little more cause I really love coding :) .

So I decided to stop, take a break (as I realized that I’ve spent none of my last year’s legal holidays) and look for a new challenge. That’s because I just couldn’t come up with a good answer to the “now what?” question and I realized that I might need to do some experiments to find out.

    Maybe you could just move on to a startup. Plenty of opportunities and the the startups targeting b2b are quite few and have a deep lack of quality people to lead them in a good direction.

    Yet again, I’m not sure this is what can fill more than just half. What do you say, see you this Wed at Seedmoney Wednesday breakfast? It takes place from 9am at BucharestHubb ( http://bucharesthubb.com/ )

    You could start a RIA company and be your own boss, after its big enough, hire a mini-boss to do your job and live off the profits on an island somewhere :D (not Haiti)

    Good luck!
