Normally when we have BIG NEWS to announce, we’re really excited to share it with the World. Unfortunately, today’s news isn’t like that and has been one of the toughest posts I’ve had write.
I am sad to announce that on February 14th, Shayne Sanderson will be leaving 9seeds.
We know you have questions. Heck, we have a ton of them, too. But, let me answer what seem to be the two most important; why? and what now?
Things change. Situations change. Building a business is hard work and sometimes that can cause issues in other areas of your life. Shayne feels it’s best that he step away, refocus himself and his energy and try something different. We know that everybody loves a bit of drama. You are going to be sorely disappointed. There just isn’t any.
The What Now
Todd and I spoke at length about our plans for 9seeds. We are both really happy with the direction things are going and have every intention to continue on our path. We will continue to take on new development projects and we will most definitely continue working on our own plugins.
Shayne has been in integral part of the growth of 9seeds over the past 16 months and we are going to miss having him on our team. Over the past two years Shayne and his wife Abbie have become part of our family. Both Todd and I have assured him that we are friends first and business partners second. Losing him as a partner hurts, losing him as a friend would be devastating.
Best of luck my friend.
