I am Kate, a former Human Resources executive who is transitioning from a very hectic work life to something else. I am not sure what that “something else” looks like. Some call it retirement, but I’m not sure about that yet. I want more variety in my life and more fun. I have been doing some training and other HR consulting work. It’s amazing how much fun it is when it doesn’t consume your life. Freshens your perspective.
Writing has been on my bucket list for a long time. There are views to share and mews (whining – isn’t that what a cat does when she mews? or perhaps a version of muse?) to be written. I thought about a blog as a place to showcase professional work. After years of writing policies, procedures and “thou shall not” memos, I love this new freedom to write what I please and what has real meaning to me. What is REALLY fun is that other folks like to read my stuff.
I have a very deep-rooted love of all animals but there are only cats residing inside my house. They have taught me some very valuable lessons in life. Visit Sassy Cats on Fridays to meet my friends.
Human Resources work is very near to my heart. I plan to share some interesting, fun and – at times – bewildering experiences and observations. No confidences will be violated……………
The rewards from writing this blog have been a lot more gratifying than I had ever imagined. Bloggers are a caring, supportive community who provide tons of good coaching and ideas. I have been inspired by some really great writers who are teaching me a lot. I am learning more about the internet, computers, programs, downloading, uploading, Photoshop, etc., than I ever would have in any other way! This is a wonderful way to transition into “the next stage” of my life – growing, learning, and feeling really good about it!
Welcome to my world!
