Your “Jerry Maguire Moment”

A few weeks ago, I met Jim Benson.

A smart guy, he told me about his frustration with his previous employer, which led him to start his own company.

I interrupted him (politely), of course, and said, “you had a Jerry Maguire moment.”x

He nodded.

Someone once told me that I’d had that prior to leaving Microsoft. Maybe.

But it resonated and I liked the idea.

Since, I’ve met many others who’ve had one. Maybe they didn't write a manifesto or email the CEO, but it was clear...they were having a Jerry Maguire Moment.

So, why not? Now, there’s a Facebook Group for all of those people who have had one.

Join with your kindred spirits.
