Tomorrow is my last day as a full-time employee of CURE Solutions.
It’s been nearly one year since I made one of the hardest decisions of my life. Closing Backslash Technologies was downright painful; it was a huge part of my life for over 12 years.
When the time came to pick up the pieces — and store them in the garage along with a ton of old computer parts — Sam Boyer was kind enough to help me out. He offered me a steady paycheck and the opportunity to continue doing what I love. I was, and still am, very appreciative.
CURE Solutions has a great team of smart individuals, and I’ve learned a lot from each one. I was also lucky enough to continue working with two of my former employees from Backslash (John Newkirk and Chris Davis) and met several new friends. I also had the opportunity to do some remote computer support, something that I wanted to do at Backslash but never was able to pull it all together.
The time has come to move on, though.
I’ve accepted the role as Web/Technology Developer for Kent Nutrition Group, part of Muscatine Foods. In my new position, I will surely face new and exciting challenges, but the first is leaving my new friends at CURE (at least on a daily basis).
Thankfully, Sam has extended his kindness to allow me to work part-time for CURE as a remote employee. I’ll continue performing my web development and some marketing duties for CURE’s clients while working full-time for Kent Nutrition Group. This seems to be a great arrangement as it will give me something to do while I’m staying several nights each week alone in Muscatine. I’m not naive; I realize that it may not work as planned. But I’m once again grateful for the opportunity.
I’ll write more about my new job later, but I just wanted to say “thanks” to everyone at CURE for being so accepting and helpful to me over the past year.
