Like I said it is kind of a soul searching experience for me to figure out my purpose and I realized that I love the company I work for and my struggle was I just wanted to be a part of something big. And you know maybe it’s a feeling of importance I guess. I’m not sure what exactly it was but I just knew that I wanted to be a part of something big. And I wanted to look back whether I’m there or I retire or whatever maybe I want to look back and say that I was a part of something and I helped something big at DiscoverOrg. And so that’s that’s kind of what helped me realize that we didn’t have there’s not a whole lot of large companies out there that are already customers. And so I need to figure out how I can help our company what I can do how I can apply myself to to be a part of something big. And I realized that after talking to Patrick Pervis RCO he’s been kind of a mentor to me throughout my my time at that DiscoverOrg with me talking and we realized that yeah it’s kind of hard to find these large companies because they’re already customers. So why don’t you apply the skills that you know the things that you’re really good at and help us expand into these customers. And so you know really just shooting out a lot of people say you know find it figure out your why. And for me it was like figuring out my what. What was it that I wanted to do. And what is it that’s going to motivate me. And that’s kind of where what my decision process was.
