Just thought I'd share a new development in my life/career with my fellow forum members. I've been in manufacturing for a little over 8 years now. 6 of the 8 has been management of some sort. Most has been process improvement and research and development. I have always enjoyed my jobs but, there has been something lacking. I have a passion for manufacturing and managing people. The lacking comes from products I've helped produce. Well, that's about to change. About 3 months ago I started helping a company do some product testing on a new target line that has impressed me. I have set up some testing on my own and started collecting data. I have been submitting the data and make suggestions for the product. On Thursday I received an email requesting me to call the owner. I did and he wanted to sit down and discuss my employment with them. Yesterday morning we met and things went very well. I came home talked it over with my wife, prayed about it an have decided to accept his offer. I'll be officially accepting Tomorrow. Finally, the piece that has been missing from my career is now there. I will be combining both passions, archery and manufacturing in one. I'll be responsible for most of the finalized product, designing the production line and putting processes am procedures in place for the start of production of a new archery target product line! It's a big move on my part as I have much potential growth with the company I am currently employed by but, I have no feelings of reservation and feel great about the decision. In the future I'll probably be asking my fellow BH.com members opinions and suggestions for the new line. I can't wait to hear feedback.
