Today is my seven-year anniversary working for Home Zone Furniture. While I have loved all the places my career has taken me (maybe a few short-lived exceptions), Home Zone is tops.
Looking back at seven years, I am proud of how far the company has come, everything I have learned so far, what I have been able to contribute to growing the company, and I am grateful for all the relationships I made along the way.
My assistant asked me recently if I dealt with imposter syndrome, which is common in our industry.
While I have felt what he is talking about in the past, the atmosphere at Home Zone is so forgiving (and whatever the opposite of bureaucratic is), that it always gave me the confidence that I could do whatever needed to be done.
With the exception of one project that has eluded me. I am still trying to create a Home Zone jingle.

My office has gone through many iterations. At one point the shelves were covered with beer bottles. In the end, it was 3 bottles deep. I called the design choice “Frathouse Chic”.
