We’re excited to announce that Marie and I will after seven wonderful years in Duluth Minnesota, will be selling our house and moving to Omaha Nebraska!
Being within a couple hours of most of our relatives, and not having to suffer through six grueling months of winter were two of the big reasons it was time for a move, in addition to receiving an offer to run the website for Omaha-based Travelex Insurance Services.
How did we end up in Duluth? Good Question.
For those that don’t know, we originally moved to Duluth, MN from the Chicago suburbs, so I could become the city government reporter at the Duluth News Tribune. That lasted a couple years before I was laid off. Following that, I worked for a Two Harbors digital agency called PureDriven, where I got my digital chops. Now, I’ll be heading up travelexinsurance.com as its new ecommerce manager, and couldn’t be more thrilled!
Marie’s time working in Duluth
Marie has spent her entire time in Duluth working for Lutheran Social Service, where she catapulted up job titles from scheduler, to administrative assistant and data researcher, and finally chief grant writer.
She plans to do a lot of sunbathing with our cats Gracie and Jewel, and perhaps eventually get a job somewhere.
Tell anyone you know about our wonderful house for sale at 624 N. 19th Ave. E! It’s a block down the hill from Sara’s Table!
Finally, here’s a question I’d like everyone to answer in the comments below.
If you moved to another city and started a new job where no one knows anything about you, what’s one thing you’d do differently, or what’s one verse or philosophy you’d keep top of mind?
Make sure you memorize everyone’s name in your office?
Be careful to be quick to listen, and slow to speak?
Bring donuts for everyone?
I’d love to hear your one piece of advice for how to kick my new job off right.
Marie and I will continue to use the Google number 218-461-9655. The email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com will also remain active. So you can always reach us there. All other phone numbers and work emails will eventually be shut down. We will also remain in Duluth until at least mid-June, and Marie will likely remain in Duluth through early July, depending when the house sells.
