I’m Ready to Start Contributing to Agile Adoptions!

May 1, 2013

Today marks my first day as an independent agile coach and trainer. You can call me either unemployed or self-employed, but the cold hard facts are that as of today, I don’t have an income stream. I’m planning to change that, of course! (Since I’m not independently wealthy, I will need to change that before too much time passes.)

To quote Steve Jobs, I want to “make a dent in the universe.” The agile universe, anyway. Maybe it will be only a nick or scratch, but I am pursuing my passion. I believe in agile and that companies and people have a lot to gain by adopting agile, enough so that I’m willing to put a stake in the ground and get out in the market to help make agile adoptions a positive, successful venture.

Based on the research that I’ve seen and my own observations, agile adoptions are increasing, and all indicators are that I am in that sweet spot of aligning my passion, expertise, and market need to provide my highest point of contribution:

I’m going to spend the next couple of weeks or so finishing off my courses (I have an excellent start thanks spending most of my free time this past month working on them), writing a white paper or two (I have some ideas), and connecting with some potential prospects. From there, I’ll have to see how things progress.

The worst-case scenario is that I’ll be contributing to my own professional development, but I really want to contribute by working with others in their agile adoptions – that’s where the real fun is! But since I enjoy this so much, it won’t feel like work.
