Well…here it is guys[/SIZE]
We’re meeting about year end compensation(getting a raise!) this week and that’s when I’ll be giving my notice. Ironic huh…

Becky XXX
Sr. Vice President of xxxxx

Dear Becky:

It is with a heavy heart that I submit my resignation. The last 7 years at xxxxx have been a period of learning and growth. These years have seen college come and go, marriage and multiple career advancements. However, after several years in the corporate arena, it is time for me to enter into the world of business ownership. I am looking forward to the satisfaction, rewards and flexibility that affords and especially spending time with my family.

My last day at xxxxxxxxxx will be Friday, March 28th 2008. I would be happy to train my replacement over the next 2 weeks.

I wish the company and all its employees much success in the coming years.

Sincerely,
Brennon M. Williams
Fixture/Productivity Analyst

It is with a [I][B]heavy heart[/B][/I] that I submit my resignation

I remember the day I left my former employer of 7-8 years I can not remember. I said about the same thing, but in my gut I was yelling “[I]I’m leaving this awful, ridiculous, stupid, profit driven, customers do not matter unless they are canceling company” " Do not worry the door will not hit me on the way out!" [/I]I wish I would have said something like that, but I did not I left with peace. It was a scarery feeling for me because I had no huge business started. 2 customers both weekly cleans- janatorial. I would not trade this for the world I actually see my family and pick my kids up from school.

I wish you luck!
Derek

exactly my thoughts

Congrats, and welcome to the world of do-or-die!

You can do it.

Good Luck Man. Ill tell ya my favorite thing about it is getting up every day and doing whatever I want to do. Not having your time controlled by a boss is the best.


#6

Well done Brennon, the world is your oyster.

You will never go back, but be prewarned - being self employed is not for the light of heart (it gets much easier). Life is definately a rollercoaster.

I also echo Dereks thoughts then - but once you are in a position to “be the company”, you hope that no employee ever feels the same way about you!

There’s nothing like being your own boss, Jump in the waters great…
Good Luck

#9

Congrats.!!!

Steady paychecks are overrated.:smiley:

I think it was Edmund Burke that once said, “Why accept mediocrity when you can have greatness.”

You will do great.
