I'm about to leave a cozy, highly-paid job after almost 13 years to open my own .com start up. Drinking a Michelada in Mexico inspired me to write my farewell letter to all my friends at the company. I received over 170 replies, full of the most encouraging and positive words I could ever imagine, and for that I will always be thankful.
I feel both excited and panicked (depending on whether I'm thinking about the day that Google buys my website or the responsibilities of my mortgage), and the words of my friends gave me the best boost of energy and confidence anyone could ask for.
I would like to share my progress, struggles, joys, and tears through this medium as I go through this adventure. I welcome your advice and comments as I head off toward uncharted territory.
Thank you all.
By the way, the recipe for the Michelada is at the bottom of my farewell letter.
