Time’s Makin’ Changes In My Life
It’s been a long while since my last post. I remember sitting down in July and writing about the Orlando City Soccer Club. At that time I was just embarking on a journey with no real course. I didn’t know what to expect or where to go with it. These past six months have brought on massive changes in my life.
During this transitional period, the rebirth of music in my life has truly assisted me and guided me to get to where I am today. I’ve jumped back into my musical roots and it’s been amazingly therapeutic. The only way I can summarize the past six months is to reference Tesla’s song Changes, from Mechanical Resonance. The chorus pretty much sums it up.
In early June, through mutual agreement, my wife and I decided to end our relationship after 15 years together. A couple of weeks later, my business partner and friend of 18 years told me he’d like to move on to the next stage of his life. It was a crazy couple of weeks to feel out who am I, what am I made of, and what makes me, Joe Forgét, truly happy. Over the past few months I’ve gone through an entire metamorphosis of who I am, what I do, how I live. It’s been a truly amazing journey.
“Time’s makin’ changes, time’s makin’ changes in my life
Time’s rearrangin’, changin’ you and me”
Over the past several months, I’ve really found that my passion for ecommerce marketing drives me professionally. I love what I do. It’s a path I didn’t necessarily choose but as an early technology adopter – had a TI994A at the age of 7 – and marketing guy, the two collided for me many years ago. This past year has been an amazing metamorphosis for me and my company. With things completed, I’m on my own to set the strategic direction for the next phase of my life.
I am embracing change and am very excited for what the new year will bring.
