Thanks for your kinds words and compliments. Especially great are the stories of inspiration all of you have shared on and offline. I'm floored and humbled. Keep the great stories coming. In fact, share them with all of us in the Career Central Board.
UPDATE: As it says in the speech, I too follow the concept of self-induced peer pressure. So to keep you updated on the announcement made in the talk, I gave my notice at my day job yesterday. I am rolling the dice and giving all my time to my business, The Digital Construction Company. This is the corporation I formed for my side projects, EH-Net and ChicagoCon.
I'm excited and scared sh!tless! But thanks to a growing community, great feedback on the event and a very supportive wife (who makes a pretty good salary), I'm able to chase a dream.
And a new chapter begins...
