Weird. Just got a reply to a several-years-old toot that I wrote after I had gotten laid off. Funny thing, getting laid off from MeetEdgar was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Still at the new job I picked up after MeetEdgar and I’m learning more, in a leadership role, compensated more than 2x what I was back then. MeetEdgar ended up laying the rest of their staff off about 18 months later and it was under much less favorable circumstances. Sometimes things just work out.
@md to be clear, sometimes != always. I definitely got lucky af. Some of my colleagues did not fare so well. I’m grateful that I ended up on the lucky side this time.
