Thanks to all who gave their advice on tough decision-making. I pretty much went with my intuition, took a risk, and, as of September 10th, will be working at tobi.com! I will be the site's copywriter, and I am very excited about this new adventure in my life.
I had worked at the same non-profit institute for nine years (since college), and it had become quite comfortable. My co-workers were a second family. I knew more about drugs than I ever thought I would. I acquired a vast array of experience, from writing grants to publishing academic articles to giving presentations at national conferences. I will never forget what I have learned in these past years--they will always benefit me in both personal and professional ways. But I am ready for a challenge and to start kindling the creative fire within. Sounds like a letter of resignation. Sorry--I'm in that mode.
Is it destiny that I will go to work at Tobi and come home to Toby? Perhaps. In any case, please help to make this fledgling online boutique a success and shop there!
