WirelessJobs.com Goes Free Agent Nation

Tomorrow marks the celebration of Independence Day in the United States.

How appropriate.

It will also mark my first day as a self-employed business owner. I'm celebrating by reading Dan Pink's Free Agent Nation.

Yep, WirelessJobs.com is officially a company, total employees: 1.

Actually, I can't overlook a couple of friends who are committing part of their heart and soul to WirelessJobs.com... ....for free! Mostly, because they believe in what we're trying to do here. And, secondly, well, they are just good friends. Thank you - you know who you are.

I'll be kicking off 3Q with a contract at Microsoft. And, yes, I consider myself big-time fortunate to land an excellent gig right out of the chute.

Big thanks to Adil, Barjis, Zenobia and Paul for helping me ease in to the world of self-employment. I look forward to a long partnership with my friends family at WorldLink, Inc.

Big thanks to a few other recruiting crazies who encouraged me to move forward with my dream and challenged me with a good dose of reality: Jason - Shally - Dave - John - Jim, and Ann.

Each of you represent all that is good within the recruiting community.

More updates and changes to come.

Stay tuned.

Happy Independence Day!

Exciting days ahead. congrats Dennis on this. You're a good guy and it's a good domain name and you have lots of friends who will help with it all. I saw Gary Fowler on your network. you should introduce yourself and tell him to get some pictures of his HeadHunter motorcycle up on the site.

Dennis, congrats on joining the small biz side. Trust me that the $$$ is over here - I wish you much of it. The margins are sick in exec search . . . just sick . . . but you can't beat a residual revenue stream to counter the large swings in play. Frankly, I already thought WirelessJobs.com was technically a real company -- What does the gig with MS look like?

Other than my first 4 months I have been on my own for my whole 10+ year career. One bit of advice is that the roller coaster ride is more severe on this side of things. Try not to get too high or too low. It will drive you crazy.

Strap on your seat belt. Keep your hands in the vehicle.

Most of all, enjoy the ride.

Dennis, wishing you every success!

Remember, the key to being a successful one-man operation is a) effective delegation; b) learning to smile while being pulled by the short and curlies; and c) succession planning.

Knock 'em dead.
