The Moment I Became Disengaged

Before coming to C.A. Short Company to lead their Marketing Team, I had a great job.  I left that job to come here.  My reason for throwing my name in the hat for a new opportunity was that I had identified myself as a disengaged employee.  To tell the story, I need to start at the beginning.

It was a Sunday afternoon in the Fall and the company was so busy during the week that they requested I come in on a Sunday for an interview.  I had lunch with my family and drove to the office from there.  The drive in was my first impression of this opportunity.  I noticed the trees.  They were beautiful.  It was October in the Carolinas and the Fall leaves were so welcoming.  I remember thinking to myself, "I would love to make this drive every day."  When I walked in the building for my first (and only) interview, it felt like home. As I spoke to the owning partners, it felt natural and we were all passionate about what I would bring to the table.

They offered me the job in that first interview and I accepted it.  I wanted to call this my home.  I wanted to make these people my work family.  This feeling of peace and joy lasted for quite a while.
