This summer I decided to stop working and give myself a mid-life (I just turned 39) summer vacation. After working hard over the last many years starting Envy Labs then Code School, it was definitely time for a reset. So I decided to take three months off and force myself not to work.
In case you’re not aware, I left Code School at the start of the summer. I gave 6 months notice and spent those 6 months learning about succession planning. Ashley Smith and Thomas Meeks are now leading the way at Code School, and I feel confident that great things will continue to happen there under their leadership.
