In so many ways.
While I still think the company I started working for (after so many positive years consulting independently) is the best I've ever worked for, there were a few times last year that gave me pause. All in all, we pulled together to resolve impacts many of you will find familiar:
- Clients with "disappered" budgets
- Projects frozen due to "significant changes in client standing or management"
- Staff changes due to major life changes, family matters, or a need to move
Almost through the first quarter of 2009, we're looking forward to the Spring! We found opportunity in 2008's adversities, and smoother times are ahead.
