Well it’s been a week and I still haven’t heard from the agency I visited last week. I think I will reach out this afternoon and see where I stand. So stay tuned…

But this time I’m thinking about business. I have been working with a start up company since the end of last year and I’m starting to feel less than confident in the company’s owner/founder. He doesn’t seem to have a clear understanding of how to run a business and he has an even less clear understanding of what the people who are working with him actually do. When he initially brought the idea of the company to me, he told me that he wanted a comprehensive media campaign nationwide and eventually worldwide. When I brought up the idea of me assisting in other public relations areas since my skillset goes beyond just media relations, he insisted that I play that one position. He said that he needed everyone to do one thing really well rather than getting bogged down by other duties.

So I said fine. I would focus on getting media for the company but at the time, everything wasn’t ready for media scrutiny. So I started getting things prepped and ready for when things came together. Well time passed and problems started arising with the other team members. Things weren’t getting done and the company became stagnant. Well at the outset, I thought it was such a great idea that I reached out to a couple of friends of mine who I knew would be assets to the company. One of my friends began working really closely with the head of the company. After things went stagnant, he was instrumental in getting them going again.

But more problems arose and the company still isn’t ready. So now I’m in an interesting position. Do I stick around and wait it out to see if the company head will get things together while the idea is still somewhat viable? Or do I walk away from the situation completely?

I’m not sure what I’m going to do at this point. I have set a very strict short term goal for myself and I have to keep all things in proper perspective. Stay tuned…

They say change is good but it is also a bit nerve wracking as well.
