As you already know, I recently retired from the federal government after 34 years of total service. My primary field of expertise was acquisition and procurement. My career was marvelous as I was well supported by a large number of colleagues, professionals and bosses as I worked in numerous positions.
That said, I am now being tapped to share my expertise with others. Today, I get the opportunity to speak to a large group of senior level officials to give them insights into the federal acquisition process. I can remember back in 1990’s and 2000’s some of the many experiences that resonate as if they just happened on yesterday. In exchange for being available to share what I know. I will earn $1,000 for a 45-minute talk.
While I have transitioned into other areas of expertise in my life: Author, minister and pastor, leadership development, business owner, certified John Maxwell team coach and mentor, professional speaker – my core expertise lies in what I did for most of my professional life. Never let that go!!
So…expand your horizons, be marketable, trust your instincts and go for it! You’ll be glad you did.
