This collection of posts on my unretirement (I think I’m adopting Steve King’s term) came up this week, I guess because of the interview Romy Ribitzky did last week with me and my daughter Sabrina, about how I stepped down from managing the company to focus on blogging, writing, speaking and teaching instead.
That was three years ago last April. In retrospect, I’m even happier about it now than I thought I would be then. It’s worked out fine for me, thanks; and I think the company is much better off, too.
