Happy Birthday
Thanks For Watching

I QUIT!

Well.  I gave the firm notice today.  Big boss took it hard, immediately doing financial calculations in his head and contemplating how this would affect him.  We agreed to disagree about his "I've invested money in you" analysis (which I knew would be his immidiate reaction) vs. my premise of  "value paid for value provided."  The fact that the firm as always made a significant profit off my efforts seems to have been lost in the calculations about how much more money I would make the firm if I stayed. 

The other partners took it very well, two of which indicated that they were surprised I stayed for so long knowing the aberrant that I am.  In short, my above board approach (I have told virtually no one of my plans and have not told a single client) has proved to be every bit as important as I thought it would be [thus far anyway].  The firm feels less threatened and more open to mutually beneficial exit strategies than I would have expected.

The best news of the day was that my secretary enthusiastically jumped on board, rejecting the immediate job offer from the firm to stay.  She is as important to my future success as anything else.  Together we shall build a one of a kind firm in our medium sized town.  Together, we shall build our dreams....speaking of which, all I can really say now is ...

Look at what's happened to me,
I can't believe it myself.
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
It should've been somebody else.
 
Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free eee eee.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.
 
It's like a light of a new day,
It came from out of the blue.
Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
Making all of my wishes come true ue ue.
 
Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free eee eee.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

More later.  Tonight I am going to rest and enjoy my family.  Tomorrow, skiing.  Then there are many details which need to be taken care of.

Don't wish us luck!

Comments

The first in town friend I told tonight was certain that many people and lawyers in town would know with in a day or so. So far, the firm has not told the associates or staff let alone the world. Big boss's goal is to keep it under a lid as long as possible. Makes sense. But there is no accounting for the small town factor which dominates this community.
