In a recent post, I mentioned as a post script to my thoughts about tithing that I had received a job offer. Now that everything has been finalized and I have officially started, I can reveal that I have accepted the position offered - Chief Financial Officer for the Durham Housing Authority. This means that I will have to make some adjustments to the management of my consulting business. Fortunately for me, my wife is very skilled and capable in some of the services I provide and will be able to take over those parts of the business. This will leave me able to concentrate on more discrete projects and product/service development.
As far as the position with the DHA, it is an opportunity for me to work with a public agency and in an area that I'm qualified. I've never worked with public housing in the past, so I will be able to learn some new things. And based on the conversations I've had and research I've done, I will have to opportunity to address some problems and issues. Seems to be a niche I constantly find myself in - the role of "fixer".
