work life 2017

Welcome to 2017, everybody. A new year means a fresh start for each of us, including me.

I am now a software CEO.

My primary product, GlitchPath, is an online premortem that helps teams beat failure and find new paths to success. Our launch date for select users is January 23, 2017.

The second product, currently in development, is a mobile app that will help you make fun and quirky life decisions in under two minutes. More on that ASAP.

I am also consulting with GlitchPath. We are using our platform to synthesize data. Then I take teams through an exercise to become self-aware and avoid big consultancy invoices by solving their own problems. If you want to know more, let me know!

My marketing consultancy continues to thrive.

There are fewer than 1,000 elite HR professionals in America who make extraordinarily complex purchasing decisions. Then there’s everybody else who makes purchasing decisions based on webinars, relationships, and raw gut instinct.

For those technology companies that sell to the everyday HR buyer, I’m still excited about reviewing and advising on marketing strategies and events. Please let me know if you think I can help.

I will always be in HR.

I can’t deny it. I love the world of human resources and technology. I will continue writing and speaking about today’s top issues in the industry. You’ll see me contribute to leading publications as well as appear in articles where journalists need to cite an HR expert.

I’m always delighted to talk at your HR conference, too. Please don’t stop asking. I’ll be working with RepCap Media to release a second edition of I Am HR in hardcover, and I plan on attending the 20th Annual HR Technology Conference & Expo in October, which is always exciting.

2017 will be a big year.

This blog — and your readership — means the world to me. I left my job at Pfizer in 2007, and I’ve managed to build a successful company and solid reputation during one of the worst economic periods in the history of America. But I didn’t do it alone. I did it with your help and support.

So if I can be of any assistance, or you need help on a personal level, just reach out. I can’t have as many clients now that I’m working on GlitchPath, but if you need me, please reach out.


  1. I’ve followed you for several years …. happy to see how things have progressed for you and me both. 🙂
