Why did I join BluPrairie?

What I’ve wanted and needed from my career has not changed, I want to work hard, know that I’m making a difference and adding value, all while having fun. That’s right, I believe work can and should be fun. If you’re not having fun, it’s time for change.

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege to lead the training efforts for some amazing technology transitions. Most recently those transitions included a 22,000 seat Google for Work implementation, the implementation of Salesforce, and a WebEx platform upgrade, all of which were cloud-based technologies. I have seen how these services have changed the way that people work and it’s powerful stuff. I decided that “I want more of that!”

Many people told me I was crazy for leaving my position at a Fortune 500 company to be one of three employees at a technology start-up. Maybe I am, crazy that is, but…in my gut I knew it was the right decision for me.

“There can be no great accomplishment without risk.”  
– Neil Armstrong

When you have the opportunity to do what you love, work with people you trust and who trust and support you, everything just comes together.

Change is good!!
