Retirement did not take...


Tomorrow morning at 8:15AM I will end my brief retirement and start my second career with General Electric. I am excited about the possibilities with this company and opportunity to learn and grow. I have received the following advice from family and friends over the course of the past few days as I prepared for my first day at work:




1) Don't be late.
2) Wear a tie.
3) Don't bring your lunch on the first day.
4) Follow directions of the HR people.
5) Have all the employment documents filled out properly.

I have appreciated all the suggestions for my first day at GE. One of the forms I had to fill out was a state of Michigan W4. The last time I had to fill out this form, I was employed by the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. That was 22 years ago. A lot has happened since then. Updates to follow!

Good luck tomorrow. I know we've been a bit out of touch during my mom's visit, but we were thinking about you today...hoping you were enjoying your last full day of your first retirement.

With any luck, you'll enjoy the first day on the new job equally as much. Talk to you this week for the details.

Don't forget -- "Listen to the HR People (including resident Mavens)". You can never go wrong--I know that I do this at work... EVERY DAY.
