Today marks my 400th post in the Bonus Track Series
. I have had the incredible opportunity to study our industry, do a little research, meet the best of the best, interview and write about a few of those best
, look inside myself and try to find out and understand why I act and react the way I do, become better at what I do, and improve as a writer, recruiter, businessperson, mother, friend, and human being.
I love that I get to write every day. I love that I get to discover a new way to think. I love that I get to do it here on RecruitingBlogs. This has been my writing home for three years. The courage I have found, the stamina I have built, the catalog of work that grows daily, and the friends I have made.
I blame Bonus Track for teaching me that I can do anything to which I set my mind. So, I'll continue to write, for at this point, I am not really sure that I can stop. I will continue to question what goes on around me and in our arena. I hope that with this practice, my work improves and my mind stays sharp.
There are a few people that must be thanked. Jason Davis aka Slouch has been so supportive over the years. Thanks so much Jason. To John Sumser who challenged me from the very beginning when he leaned in and said that I would never be able to do it. My children allow me to retreat nightly to my computer behind closed doors, I couldn't ask for more. And of course, if you read? Thanks so much!
When I started this project, I committed in my head to two full years. I am three quarters of the way there; I will make it. How can I stop now? I would say it is not in my nature, but as a result of my commitment to Bonus Track, my nature has changed. For the better. And therein lies my purpose...
