As I write this, I am looking at the Zuidas area of Amsterdam from the 8th floor of BinckBank building. The work day is over, the office is nearly empty. I am listening to Thievery Corporation and contemplating going home before 19-00.
This has not happened to me for some time. I haven’t worked for anyone for the past few years. It has been a great time filled with struggle, failure, success, blood, tears, sweat, no sleep, a lot of sleep, fun and true game.
In March 2017 everything changed. I came home one day and told my family that we’re selling the company to a large Dutch bank. I never thought people could feel so much different emotions at the same time.
Sorrow; relief; pain; happiness of being recognized; accomplishment.
