I´ve been fired and i feel good.
Well, that’s it for my time at Ogilvy. I got the word that they were cutting my team because of one of our major clients basically killing their advertising this year. However, after some discussion about what sort of a deal i was going to get we finally came to terms. Remember that scene in Fight Club? That’s pretty much how this feels. A bit bruised and blue, but most of all i feel inspired. I feel like the cage door has swung open and the savannah stretches to infinity before my paws. Oh, and i smell Zebra.
I’m now gonna spend the rest of 2009 in paternity leave and come next year, I’ll be back in the marketplace. Only question is, as what? My own firm? Working for someone really, really cool? Time will tell.
