Momentous News

Another post, another scoop.

Those who know me (and a few others), also know that I dislike my job as an Admin Assistant for a local council. The job is a best unchallenging; boring most of the time.

Today I have just done to do something I have thought of doing many times a but have never done before: resign. The nice thing is that my manager seems quite crest fallen about my leaving.

The next step is a complete change of direction for me. While I have been a civil servant for the past four and a half years, with all the securities attached to this, I am now going to be (almost) my own boss and, for the first few months (hopefully not longer), I will not even get paid but will have to dig into my savings to support myself. There are however great prospects for when this new venture I am joining gets going for good.

I have been asked to join the consultancy Design for Diversity as a partner (other partners include Slightly and Linda Bellos). I will be in charge of the admin side of the operation.

This represents professionally a great leap and a great challenge which (whichever way the tide goes) will have enormous repercutions on my life. The other partners seem more confident in my capacities than I am but I will sure give it my best.

  2. partnership act...provides for equality. In the absence of written agreement to the contrary that is equal share of profit and losses. And partners are jointly and severally liable. That means stand ready for all your personal assets to be on the line for the action or inaction of your partners. Personal liability, and if I recall, unless you advise that goes past present and future...enjoy! Like sex, be protected.
