Q: Every year around this time, I sit down to write goals for the following year. Because the economy is improving and more companies are hiring, for the first time in a while I’m considering leaving my job. It’s not a bad job -good benefits, pays the bills- but it’s something I’ve held onto because there were few choices. How do I know if it’s the right time to leave?
I have a Masters degree in Education from the University of Florida and worked in corporate HR over 20 years; I’m accredited as a Senior Human Resources Professional (SPHR) and I write a column for the Sunday business section of The Gainesville Sun. I’m also an instructor and an expert resource for Santa Fe College’s business incubator, the Center for Innovation and Economic Development (CIED).
I’ve lived, worked and played in North Central Florida for the last 20+ years, have strong roots in this community and I understand the unique economic factors that affect our businesses and workforce. I bring that perspective and experience when advising my clients.
I help small businesses and start-ups use best HR practices and common-sense advice to succeed…. just like big businesses do.
