Pat Lynch here. I’ve been doing this blog for a while since the amazing Dick Felton retired a few months ago. I have gone a couple of weeks without a post, but now I am back. My job with my old employer came to an end on October 30. I spent the entire past month moving emails, arranging new phone service, changing addresses, and doing those things you have to do when your identity and on-line life have been closely woven with your company’s. But now I am independent, have a new email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and am ready to get back to business. GMI graciously allowed me to keep my old phone number, so it remains the same – 704-941-0116 .
A word of explanation – GMI hired me when they were a small, regional company who did most of their work for a few big companies. It was their customers who dealt with the paying customers. I was hired to give them a national presence and teach them how to market to hospitals, so they could move away from the behind-the-scenes work to directly dealing with the end customer. This worked, and now my job is done. I am presently looking for another company in a similar situation – that I can help move from a small regional company to a much larger national presence. But I am very selective. Watch where I land – it will be a great place. Pat.
