This summer, I was talking with Shane Ginsberg (@shaneginsberg) of Organic who gave me the best advice I’ve heard in a long time. He said, “Kevin, your name is your job description. Try to be the best Kevin you can be and try to be a better Kevin tomorrow. The second you begin forcing yourself into a pre-defined role, you’ll get frustrated and fail.”
As I spend this weekend before starting a new job, I can only hope that my judgement about a place that can let me be me is correct. All signs point to yes.
