In January, we hired a new lawyer, which allowed me to transition out of contracts and into other things, including a “special project”. I’ve been actually working on this “special project” since August of last year, so until January, I was essentially doing the job of two people.
15 July, 2015
That was until a couple of weeks ago. The President of our company and the gentlemen I happened to be working on the project for, suffered a stroke. The results of the MRI showed, the stroke was actually caused from a brain tumor. The prognosis is not favorable.
I am devastated and I can’t even imagine how his family is feeling. This gentlemen is in his early 80’s but has the brains and stamina of someone in his 30’s. He was completely hands-on with his company, beyond successful and cares greatly for his employees – an unusual combination.
I am told by the management team that stepped in – that the “special project” will proceed on the planned timeline; however with so many other pressing issues, it’s fallen to the bottom of their priority pile. Without his guidance, backing and input, I feel slightly lost a sea at the moment and until someone decides to adjust their priorities – I wait.
I’m determined that this “special project” will proceed. It was something he wanted, and I’ll be sure it’s something he gets.
