Two years ago, almost to the day, as Superstorm Sandy rattled the windows, I decided to leave the job I had held for almost seven years. I didn’t make the decision lightly. As Chief Research and Insights Officer at Time Inc., the largest magazine publishing company, I loved the brands I supported and valued the people I worked with. But if I wanted to do more in my life, to begin my own new phase, what better time than this? I called that realization my “Sandy Epiphany.” No one was holding me there, and life, both mine and Time Inc.’s, would go on.
