I'm Back! And Working Full Time
After another long hiatus, I've decided to try to begin writing regularly again. There are lots of times over the past few months when I thought about putting pen (keyboard) to paper (screen), but just couldn't get myself to do it. Part of it was the fact that my life was in flux and I was just trying to figure out where it was going.
Well, I started a job as a Sr Product Manager at Symantec two weeks ago. I had been busy interviewing at several places, but decided that this position was best for a variety of reasons. Most surprisingly though was, and is, how entrepreneurial it is. I'm working on emerging products on the consumer side (NortonLive), in a group that is separate from the core Symantec products. Though working full time at Symantec, I am still working on Vyoo. It is my dream and I won't let it die a quiet death until I've pursued all avenues.
The real reason I ended up getting a job was not because I've given up on my idea, but because I couldn't pay my minimum monthly balance on my credit card anymore. It was that high! And my part time gigs just weren't cutting it. Sometimes in life you gotta do what you gotta do.
I'll leave the details to future posts, but wanted to get something out on my blog in the interim.
