Something better maybe

Patience is not one of my strong suits. I don’t do well in purgatory between life choices. Avoiding that mental gap was pushing me to rush and I am super grateful I took a bit of time to slow down. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve done a bit of consulting to test the waters and put the existing offers on hold. Thankfully this worked out really well in the end.

Look how smart Jen is:

I don’t know you either, but your intuition was right.

Last week an old coworker was having a lunch interview and happened to mention that she knew I was also looking. The CTO she was chatting with added me on LinkedIn. The valley is so small, we had actually met before and I knew at least one member of his team from prior work. I didn’t realize they had rebranded and so I didn’t recognize the name of the company.

Things moved pretty quickly from here. A phone call, a lunch with the team followed by a more technical meeting at their office. I can’t really explain it but I was so impressed with everyone I met. There was a unity in purpose and direction that is rare to find. I grilled them on product and process flows, something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. Later I sat down with the CEO and chatted about the past, present and where he wants to go. I am so excited to be joining Nav. Check out the diversity of their team. Do you know how rare this is in Utah?

The day after I had decided it was the right move they announced a strategic partnership with Experian.

For those of you who may not know, that’s a huge deal. Experian has bought over 300 companies (third party info for which I take no responsibility). I can’t seem to escape the Fintech space. I think this is going to be an amazing ride.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
