My MtM Swan Song, Thank You For The Memories
Wow, time has flown by. It has been five and a half years since I joined Miles to Memories (my first ever article – see how sad this offer is compared to today), even though it feels like just a few years ago. Okay, I am totally ignoring 2020, which felt like seven years on its own. But, besides that … you get the point. As you can tell from the title, I have a bit of news to share. Before I get to that I want to reminisce a bit, so please indulge me…
During the last five and a half years so much has happened in the travel, miles and points space, and of course, the world as a whole. I look back at how things have evolved in that relatively short time period, myself included, and I am somewhat in awe. For myself, I like to think I went from a not so great writer to a not so bad writer over that stretch of life. I could just be fooling myself there though! It has been a blessing to be able to work in an area that brings me so much joy. When you can turn your hobby into a career, that is really the sweet spot of life.
I couldn’t have done it without the help of Shawn. He really took a chance on me and I hope he feels like that was a gamble that paid off in spades. I sincerely thank you for giving me this opportunity.
It has been great working with him, and the entire Miles to Memories team over the years. So many long term friendships have been formed working with these amazing people. It is hard to ask for a better group of co-workers.
I would also like to thank you all for reading, listening and watching our content. It means more to me than you will ever know. I have really enjoyed getting to know so many of you at meetups, in the comments, in our Facebook Groups and via email. Without all of you there is no Miles to Memories, or any miles and points space for that matter. I’ll even give a shout out to the trolls, you keep me on my toes and always gave me a chuckle. So kudos to you as well!
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end though. I will be leaving Miles to Memories at the end of the year. I will still continue to do the MtM Vegas YouTube show with Shawn, so you won’t be rid of me completely!
I am not ready to discuss what is next yet, but I’ll announce it on Facebook and Twitter towards the end of the year if you are interested. Those are probably the best ways to stay in touch with me going forward as well.
It has been an amazing five and a half years and I thank all of you for taking the journey with me. I am excited for what is next and I can promise this isn’t the last you’ll see of me. Happy Holidays to everyone and I look forward to closing out this year alongside all of you. Let’s finish it off with a bang!
