Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.
So, they’re interested. I could tell from the first interview that this was the case, they were projecting their intention. I really am getting better at reading people, and this no small feat through the phone when there is no body language to observe for context.
I fit a need they have in the short to medium term. I’m honestly not all that thrilled to be covering old ground – do I really want more experience on that front? That said, this might be a good point to pick up something in the interim. I mean, I don’t have to stay and I am ready to move onto The Next Thing. I’m also aware that it’ll take some time to gain traction on what I really want to do, and this will provide some financial security and a fallback in the event of failure.
That seems to be my comfort zone: cultivating multiple opportunities and covering the downside. Let’s not put all of our eggs in one basket.
Ok, so onto the next round and let’s see what develops.
