The first #awkward event I want to share was when I had to fire someone.
This conversation was awkward for a lot of reasons but the most obvious is that I was telling someone they were no longer going to be receiving a paycheck. Having any sort of control over someone else’s livelihood terrified me. I knew I was going to fire this person for about a week. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I lost weight.
The day came, the deed was done and the pain in the person’s eyes will be something I see until the day I die but this was the best decision for all involved.
If you find yourself in this boat ask yourself the following questions: 1) Have I given fair warning of #expectations? 2) If this person stays on board am I afraid these same errors will continue?
In the case of this employee I knew the answer was yes to both and in the end both the organization and the person flourished, together #growth for each was constrained.
Frigid days like this remind me of the time we shot an inspirational video. Get Inspired.

Becoming an adult is hard. Moving to a new country, alone is hard. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged, to miss home and even wish you could leave. But if you take it in stride, it becomes the adventure of a lifetime.
Day 316: Today's carpool reading.
It's been 8 years since I've been on a formal job hunt. Many things have changed and I want to make sure I'm putting my best out there.
Hey guys! I'm starting a new post series. 😅
Over the next few days, I'll be spamming you with funny ads. Or should I say, fake ads I've made that I think are funny. And of course, punny!
Why? Because the world of advertising needs more puns. Plus, I'm trying to get a new job. 🤘
P.S. Yo @iamspecialized, I live in Morgan Hill! Let's make marketing magic together. I'm wheelie clever, less hard-headed than a cyclist wearing a helmet, and am rarely two tired to brainstorm.

Use your apps!
If you’re having trouble keeping track of the things you need to know, use that mobile device that is ALWAYS in your hand! There are apps for almost anything you need to do… calendaring, taking notes, tracking time, etc… and many are free!
40th Birthday vibes from the weekend.
Quick Tip -> When attending somebody birthday party, it’s your job to make them feel special on their big day. NOT just eat their food and sit there looking crazy. Her family & friends did a great job making her B-Day a night to remember. #Pressplay🎥
