Friday Linky Love, But Really It’s An Announcement

2011 May 27
by Grace Boyle

I’m hijacking this Friday Linky Love because today is a big day.

This is my last day at my job.

After three amazing years at Lijit, I have accepted a job with another company. I have held my tongue before announcing anything while I made this transition as smooth as possible but today is my last day.

I will be starting next week at Kapost (an online startup in Boulder) as their Director of Marketing and Sales!

I promise I’ll dive into more detail next week, talk about Kapost and their amazing product, then explain what’s new and next in part of this change.

For now, I’m focusing on this bittersweet day, thanking my amazing work-family at Lijit and closing up shop for Grace after three years here. The last three years have been incredibly fulfilling and I have learned an immense amount (look, I found my post from my first day at Lijit, my how we’ve changed and grown as a company).

It’s hard to put it in words, but I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity and experience. I have many mentors, friends and long lasting relationships from my time and work here. I feel the tears starting to well up, so I’ll leave it at that: unbounded gratitude – a new horizon ahead – and focusing on personal and professional growth.

Until next week, I’m logging off and enjoying the long weekend before the new job. I promise to dive into more because Kapost is so very exciting.

XOXO

    The biggest congrats ever. I’m not surprised at all, though. You’ll be running Boulder in the next year or two 😉

    Show them how it’s done, Gracie. Good luck!

    Congratulations Grace!

    Really proud of you, Grace! Glad we got to work together briefly but even more glad that we were and are friends and so I don’t have to be quite as sad that you’re leaving.  You did, however, make a big mistake by not going to Hawaii in between jobs. Lesson learned, I guess.

    I’d say just plain “Congrats” but that somehow implies that you are the lucky ones. I think Kapost has gotta be thrilled with the goldmine they just acquired! Keep kicking butt lady – you are awesome!
