Ukukhangela

The content on my site hasn't been especially strong in the last week – sorry if any of you are disappointed. I've been pretty busy developing a handful of applications at home. What I'm not making up in content, I hope to make up in some plugins. At work, we're preparing for a major software release and I've got a demonstration project that's going to provide a means to self-demo some of the most important features. There's a lot weighing on my success and I have scarce resources to get it done so it's a challenge.

All of the projects are progressing nicely and I'll meet deadlines, it's just taking some heavy work weeks. As well, I'm re-evaluating my full-time employment and giving some careful consideration to my future there and weighing it with some strong opportunities on the outside. You hate to leave a great employer, but sometimes work has to come down to simple economics. I don't like paying attention to money when it comes to a job, but I've been working with the hope of catching up to my income a couple years ago when I was consulting. It's become clear that that's not going to happen if I stay put. With a son starting University this fall, I've got to make some adjustments and make them quickly.

I love change and I'm incredibly optimistic about my opportunities. I almost left yokuqalisa a few months ago, but the timing just wasn't right. It's looking pretty good, now, though. Few folks can put on their resume that they've assisted corporations from Vancouver Island to Iceland to Australia to implement online strategic marketing objectives, integration, and automation. My clients have been some of the largest in the world, including The Indianapolis Colts, The Home Depot, United Airlines, Icelandair, Liberty Mutual, Goodyear, Hotels.com, A.G. Edwards, and a host of other development companies and agencies in between. Prior to that, I built a multi-million dollar direct mail program for a major newspaper. Success builds confidence, so I'm quite confident I can turn any company around when it comes to Marketing and Technology.

Njengomcebisi noMdibaniso weMveliso, uxanduva lwam ibikukubonisana namashishini, ndichonge amathuba, ndiphumeze isisombululo esifanelekileyo kubo. Uxanduva lwam lwangoku lujolise ekuthobeleni i-CAN-SPAM, uyilo lojongano lomsebenzisi, ukufikeleleka, ukusebenziseka, API and feature development. I'm also well-versed in Geographic Information Systems, Analytics and Search Engine Optimization. Heck, I even got my name in print this year with some submissions I made to Chris Baggott's book, Email Marketing by the Numbers.

Ndijonge phambili ekuqhubekeni nolu hlobo lomsebenzi- nokuba kungokusebenza kwefemu yam yokubonisana okanye ngokusebenzisa uMlawuli / isikhundla senqanaba kwenye inkampani. Nam ndinomdla ixesha elide contract relationships. A dream come true would be to begin consulting under my own company again. I can't leave Indianapolis – my kids love it here and they live close to their Mom. So if there's an opportunity to work remote, I'm all for that as well. I look forward to diving headfirst into some new challenges, perhaps Search Engine Optimization. I've had some fantastic results with this site and know I could do it for any other.

Oh… and I'll never give up the blog! 😉

    Kulungile ukuba ube nezibonelelo ezimbalwa ezilingayo ngeenxa zonke. Kwiinyanga ezimbalwa ezidlulileyo ndanikwa i-100K yokusebenza unyaka omnye eQatar, ilizwe elincinci ngaphandle kwe-Iraq, njengomphathi wenethiwekhi.

    Oko kuya kuba sisithembiso esilingayo kum kwiminyaka esi-8 eyadlulayo, kodwa ngoku ndinomfazi kunye nonyana oneenyanga ezili-9 ubudala, awunakundikhupha apha ukuba ubuzamile!

    Ndishiye ingqesho yexesha elipheleleyo kwiinyanga ezi-3 ezidlulileyo ukuze ndiqalise inkampani entsha, kwaye andikaze ndizive ndinamandla kangako 🙂 kuba ndikhululekile ukusebenza kwinto endiyithandayo (ngaphakathi kwemida ethile!)

    Ndinezibonelelo zeqabane elizisa imali eyaneleyo yokugcina inkampani kunye nathi isebenza ngokuncedayo!

    Owu, kwaye awuwazi umqeshi wakho wangoku ukuba ufunde le Doug kwaye uzibuze ukuba kwenzeka ntoni? 🙂

    UDoug,

    Kuba ungumhlobo wam olungileyo, ndiza kuba ngogxekayo apha kwaye ndibeke iposti yakho kudidi "lokuhlamba iimpahla ezimdaka" esidlangalaleni. Uninzi lwethu soloko sigxeka iimbaleki eziqeqeshiweyo ngokwenza olu hlobo lwesiteyitimenti (umz. UTerrell Owens, uRandy Moss). Ngelixa kuyinyani ukuba bayaqhubeka nokuqeshwa ngabanye kwaye baqhwatyelwa izandla ngomsebenzi onomdla kwimisebenzi yabo, isimilo sabo siyonakala ekuhambeni kwexesha.

      Wow, ngokuqinisekileyo yayingeyonjongo yeposi, uRandy. Ngapha koko, andinanto ngaphandle kwezinto ezintle endinokuzithetha ngomqeshi wam wangoku. Akukho 'mpahla zingcolileyo' eposini konke konke. Ndisazinikele kubo ngokupheleleyo kwaye ndicinga ukuba zezona zibalaseleyo endakha ndazisebenzela.

      Le yayingeyiyo iposti eyayityhalelwa nangayiphi na indlela ukungcolisa umqeshi wam wangoku okanye ukuhlamba umoya okungcolileyo- sisithuba 'sokuvavanya amanzi' kwaye ubone ukuba ngawaphi amathuba anokufumaneka phaya endingawaziyo. Ndifikelela kwinqanaba lendlela ebomini bam apho iinjongo zam zingangqinelani namathuba am ngoku engqesho. Kulula njengokuba ndinokubeka.

      Kungcono ndivuleke kwaye ndinyaniseke kwiminqweno yam kunokuba ndivale umlomo wam. Kukho abo bacinga ukuba akufuneki uthethe nantoni na kwaye uphume ngomnyango. Ndiyikhathalele kakhulu le nkampani ukwenza oko. Kuya kufuneka bazi ukuba zeziphi na iimfuno zam kwaye kufuneka ndiqonde ukuba zeziphi na iimfuno zabo. Ukuba kukho umdlalo, ndingene! Ukuba akunjalo, kufuneka ndiqhubele phambili nobomi bam.

      Kwakhona… akukho 'mpahla zingcolileyo' singathetha ngazo.

      mbuliso,
      Doug

    Ukuvavanya amanzi kulungile. Ukuba nomqeshi wangoku ufumanise malunga nayo kwiposti yebhlog ... ayilunganga kangako… kodwa, ndiyaqikelela ukuba sele unencoko nabo kwaye nangaphaya ayisiyonto yam leyo.

    Inhlanhla enhle.

    Ukuba ufuna uncedo lwexeshana, ndixelele.

      Molo Greydon,

      Andikholwa ukuba bekukho isimanga kubo - kodwa kukho inkxalabo ethile. Ndihlala ndingumntu ovulekileyo nothembekileyo kwaye bendihleli ixesha elide. Esi sithuba siza kuphela emva kweenyanga zengxoxo kunye nokwenza izigqibo.

      Ewe kunjalo, ukubhloga kuzisa umlinganiso omtsha ngokupheleleyo kwimeko enje. Ayisiyonto onokuyijonga kwincwadana yolawulo, inene! Sisebenza ngayo, nangona kunjalo.

      Enkosi!
