“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work one day in your life. ~ Confucius”
Work is an important part of our everyday life. Given that, on average, one probably has to work about 40 years until retirement, it makes absolutely sense for someone to follow their passion!
A little over 20 months ago, I embarked on a journey with ENow as Director of Product Research. During that time, I’ve had the honor to work with great people and fantastic customers around the world, and I’m grateful for the opportunity I was given. I worked on exciting products and stood at the verge of very exciting times for ENow. Admitted: I loved every moment of it. But, all good things come to an end. Despite a fantastic job at ENow, and lots of interesting stuff to look forward to, I recently decided to take a different route.
Since April 1st (no joke!), I started working as an independent consultant and trainer again, albeit through my own company VH Consulting & Training. Being and independent consultant doesn’t mean working less. However, it does allow me to set my own schedule, and it enables me to pursue another passion of mine: Krav Maga. (I recently started training to become a Krav Maga Instructor and I hope being able to open up a training location near Kortrijk (Belgium), sometime later this, or next year.)
In the meantime, I won’t sit still of course! I look very much forward to my first challenge which brings me to Fujitsu Technology Solutions in Belgium, helping them further grow their Microsoft Services practice. I will also continue to work with ENow on an independent basis, continuing to provide professional services and working relentlessly to build the best-in-class monitoring solution! Should you also be interested in working with me, you can get in touch at www.vhct.be.
Aside from all that, I plan to continue writing, and I look forward to (hopefully) speak at a few conferences later this year! For now, however, I will return to writing new things for the next version the Office 365 e-book, due later in May. There is a lot of content that needs to be rewritten, and although it’s all very exciting stuff, things don’t write themselves!
