I thrive when I can do both strategy and operations, both big picture planning and day-to-day running (part of the reason why I've owned several businesses). I like a mix of customer service and higher level coordinating - organizing all the moving parts behind the scenes and also some in-person interaction - making people (especially kids!) smile. I need a variety of tasks and responsibilities, multiple projects moving forward at the same time. I want the ability to make decisions quickly and start new initiatives without bureaucracy or committee meetings. I enjoy traveling, both region-wide and nation-wide, and would be happy with a position that included some driving to different sites, flying for conferences, etc.
I love working with other passionate, positive, intelligent people in a collaborative environment that values productivity and allows employees to work when & where is best for them (although of course, teachers need to be with the students for classes, brick&mortar businesses need to be staffed during their open hours, and events need people to run them). I take personal responsibility and will do what it takes to get the job done, and I expect my co-workers to do the same, but I also want work-life balance and I encourage switching shifts or trading tasks so that everyone can provide value to the company, gain personal value from their employment, and still enjoy their family, hobbies, and free time. http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20130730145657-5799319-unlimited-vacation-days-treat-employees-like-adults
