What I’ve learned on my current vacation

The week before last I wrote about my interest in opening up the thinking process around next steps in my career. I felt like I needed to keep an open mind following my departure from Primal Fusion and, more importantly, get as much input as possible during this discovery phase of my new adventure. Since then I’ve enjoyed a number of conversations with friends and colleagues, old and new, who have been generous in sharing their thoughts and listening to mine. There are, of course, various moves that would make sense and my job is to sort out the right next step.

I have to confess that, at the moment, the most interesting possibility that has emerged is creating a new startup company with a couple of like-minded friends. We’ve had some great conversations already and have even managed to get our creative juices flowing with some initial product work. Fun stuff guys!

I’m still talking with people and maintaining my open mind, though this week I’m more focused on home life as my sons are off school for March break. It continues to be a fascinating journey of discovery for me, and I’m looking forward to more conversations and learning. My thanks go out to everyone who has taken the time to talk and to listen.


  1. The community needs more people like you Mark! I still say startup because I would love to see what you would come up with.

  2. Thanks Jesse! We’ll see where it all goes.
