2010 – a good year but sad too
In 2010 we were busy…
… with training new marketing and search associates, working on some great new job opportunities, working on the oppcourse to Get Working NOW!, planning the new “Marketing Services by zenPeak Recruiters”, plus plus plus!
Personally its been a very good year. The business is growing the way I want it to. I faced up to some challenges and made decisions that I am comfortable with. I have added more staff and am still looking for a Search Associate, a Marketing Associate both well-paid part-time, work from home positions.
I’ve been learning like crazy this year both personally & professionally – and when you are well into your 50s I think this is a good thing. Finally I know this isn’t a good thing to share to job seekers, but I made a personal decision to never work for anyone else again in my life, and to turn down all offers outside my own business interests. I have a lot to accomplish and its all about the journey!
Sadly, one of my oldest friends, Jack Goldhar passed away suddenly at the end of October. He was single and had devoted 30 years of his life to caring for his severely ill Mom Helen (died 2 years ago), and in the past 2 years his Dad Sam (died in 2010) . Within 6 months of his Dad’s passing, Jack dropped dead. I always say “We like people for their qualities, but we love them for their quirks” We loved Jack and yes, he was plenty quirky. I still can’t believe he is gone.
I made some new friends at the dog park this year… Wayne, Linda, Charlie, MaryAnn.

Many Clients and Candidates have gotten use to hearing a bark in the background if they call me. I do business 24/7 so I always take calls
