A New Chapter Starts Today

June 4, 2014

BIG NEWS on the Munson front. Friday was my last official day at Storyville Coffee. I love the place to death and am so proud of what we’ve built over the last few years. The people of Storyville represent one of the finest collections of human beings I’ve ever seen. I will greatly miss working alongside them every day but am hopelessly addicted to the coffee, so if you’re ever looking for me, start there!

Journey

A New Chapter Starts Today

I like challenges. When someone says, “you’re crazy” or “that’s impossible”, something inside me perks up. Every role I’ve had in the last 16 years has posed its own opportunities and challenges. I’ve had many exhausting days and many triumphant days. I’ve enjoyed some success and tried to learn from the failures. My plan is to take this experience and build a leadership consulting company to help leaders and their organizations thrive. There is an epidemic of lost leaders and organizations, my mission is to help.

When people ask how long I’ve been thinking of this, my usual answer is, “Since I was 12, when I dreamt about building a teleporter to take me home back up the hill from my best friends house.” Starting something new is never easy. It’s a risk but as with most dreams in life they require taking that first step and diving in.

What If It Doesn’t Work?

I hear regularly “what if it doesn’t work?” or “what if you fail?” Failure is a real possibility, and I don’t take that lightly, especially with the responsibility to feed four children. However, I can’t move on without trying and am so excited to jump in, and trust the process. I’ve slowly worked my salary back to nothing which is where this ride begins so I better get going.

In the coming weeks I’ll be writing a lot on the subjects of helping leaders and organizations find clarity, get unstuck and maximize their potential. In the meantime if I can help you with anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

 Thank you for sharing in this journey with me.
