A Very Odd Job!

AVeryOddJob.Comi one of the many domain names I’ve registered through the years.

The name came to me one day when I was in the midst of one of my typical days at work.

It's become a truly indescribable, satisfying, complex, rewarding career! Who would have thought I would end up here?

As I write this, let me describe to you how my ‘I’m going to work today’ is going to unfold. I started out the day in the home office, and spent quite some time doing some research for several upcoming keynotes. But now it’s time to go to “work work.” The stuff that I really get paid for.

In about 1/2 hour, my voyage into the world of Town cars, hotels and the spotlight will unfold. I’ll have a car service pick me up at the door; it will take me to the airport. I’ll have a quick one hour flight to Washington, DC, where I’m scheduled to open a pretty significant private equity venture capital meeting tomorrow. In DC, I’ll be met by a another Town car service, which will whisk me to the hotel. Some sleep — and tomorrow AM, a 5 to 8 mile walk, timed by the GPS on my phone. Then it’s time for the AV check, followed by my moment on the stage. Another car service zips me back to the airport, another flight, and another black car service to send me home. I’ll get back tomorrow night about 8pm.

It’s become a truly indescribable, satisfying, complex, rewarding career! Who would have thought I would end up here?

It truly has become a very odd job! And someday I’m going to write about that. Until then, I’ve reserved the domain name at least!
