Today I resigned from my job…

Big news

Hi everyone!

I bet you weren’t expecting to read that blog title here on Curious Robyn any time soon, huh? 

Well, it’s true. After almost 7 years at Parent24.com, I handed in my resignation today. The first time I’ve ever had to do that, which is a very strange feeling to be honest. 

You see, I grew up at 24.com. Literally. I started there as a wee intern with nothing but big dreams and zero life experience. I was 19 years old and despite bringing my mother to my interview (she stayed at the reception desk, okay!) Sam Wilson gave me a chance. And I’ll never be more grateful. 

Almost 7 years later and I became a fully functioning adult, got married, found my best friend (that’s you, Zayaan!)  and learned so much about life and business from the most incredible people. People like Sam and Adele Hamilton and Scott Dunlop, people that became more than just bosses or colleagues but friends. Let me stop now before this turns into a Grammy acceptance speech and I start to cry. 

What’s next? 

Once I pack up my things and cry all of the tears (because that’s what happens when you leave home) on the last day of July, I’ll be on a whole new adventure. 

I’ll officially be a freelancer and working on some awesome projects via a business my brother started (I’ll share more on that another time) and I’ve now joined him on. Content writing, social media website managing and a load more. I’ll be doing all of the things 24.com has prepared me for and leaping into so much more that I will need to learn and develop all on my own.

To say that I am excited is an understatement. Life is about to get about 1000x more crazy and I’m leaping into the unknown, because who doesn’t love excitement!?

For now I’m chuffed and scared and excited and nervous and I’m sure I’ll continue to feel a thousand more feelings before this month is done, but for now, Robi is growing up just a little more and that’s an adventure all on its own. 

If you have any questions, then ask away! For now, chat soon.

  1. I haven’t even read the post yet. All I’m going to say is that I asked you to tag me, and instead I had to find out OVER EMAIL?!

    Kay, reading the post now.

  2. Okay, you RESIGNED!

    Never would have seen that coming. I was half expecting a pregnancy announcement (when a woman has already been engaged and married, pregnancy is the next assumption).

    Anyway, so happy for you honey! Such exciting things ahead for you in your life. I’m excited to see how it all pans out so please keep us up to date, and also share the link to the new company website!

    1. Thank you, honey. No babies just yet but you KNOW I’ll be shouting that from the roof tops. ;)

      Once the website is up and running properly I’ll share the link. :D

  3. Wow , so exciting ! I experienced the same thing end of September last year after being at that job for 8 years! It’s a bitter sweet feeling, but every season prepares you for the next one ! And your new chapter sounds amazing x

  4. Wow that’s amazing! Congrats on your move. And before start sounding like a lame greeting in a farewell card, enjoy your last month. Exciting times ahead. :)
