Let's be honest. What are you really looking for?
Need a disruptor? Looking for someone to mix it up a bit?
Perhaps an advocate? Someone who isn't afraid to do the right thing, even when others can't or won't?
Or a cleaner? Folks who come in, mop the place up, set things right and then get out of the way?
Because that's what you'll get with me.
