This time, it’s personal.
I have probably written hundreds and hundreds of blogs over the past year, always striving for a professional tone that embraces our clients’ brand voice. But today, it’s time for a blog that’s entirely personal. The reason? I’m standing down. There it is. In black and white. I’m departing from dear Fyxen.
For the past year, I’ve been undertaking training to qualify as a psychotherapist. So, during the week, I wear various hats: some days I’m Thomasin the Writer; some days I’m Thomasin the Therapist, and some days I’m mainly Mum. Some days I try to do all three, and it’s been becoming increasingly apparent to me that those days usually make me feel like a failure across the board. Something had to give. I suppose I could give the kids the heave-ho, but it’d probably be some kind of ethical block to practising as a counsellor.
So, I talked to Sarah, and as ever she was amazing. She is going to captain the ship from now on, without me as a business partner. She has been so understanding, gracious and generous. I have been very lucky to count her as a friend, and anyone who works with her through Fyxen will know that she’s a total diamond.
So, for now, it is farewell. I bid you all adieu, knowing that the business is stronger than ever and has a wise, ambitious, talented woman at the helm, ready to take it to the next level. I for one can’t wait to see where Fyxen goes next.
