All change, please

You know that commonplace announcement that booms across the tannoy when you reach the end of the line on the tube/train/bus/motorway queue/supermarket check-out? Yes, well, I am there. In a manner of speaking, that is.

For those who have missed out on the earth-shattering news, I have resigned from my current job and... (drum roll)... am setting up my own company, venturing (back) into interim management and all that it entails. I say 'back' as this is not foreign territory for me and an idea I have been toying with for a while. Suffice to say that whilst the economic conditions at present might be foreboding for many, the timing for me is right.

So given that I have been asked ever-so-politely to desist from writing about anything vaguely work-related by my incumbent employer, I shall abide by this request and instead entertain the masses with a silly ditty.

Because that is what I do best (here on the blog, not in my working life, let's be clear about that).

I give you, in worldwide première, the LCM sing-a-long reference ode (with a few liberties) to new beginnings:

I was working nine to five (trying hard to make a living),
when the gods up yay on high, gave me thought for a new beginning.
the sky's the limit (not myself).
'Coz slavery's abolished now,
(though not working for a man),
and the ultimate prize for going it alone


Yadda yadda yadda...
