Was: [Job Offer] Designer
Hey All! This is Doug Zaruba, back from retirement in Panama and
working again in my studio/gallery in Maryland. This sounds like a
wonderful place to work and a wonderful opportunity for someone. If I
was 20 years younger, I’d apply.
Alas, I would love to slip back into semi-retirement.
Unfortunately/fortunately, my studio is fairly busy with custom
orders and repairs. So I would like to pose this question to the
Orchid readership: How does one retire from a strong business that is
built entirely around a single designer/goldsmith? My studio sounds a
lot like Abbey Jewelry Studio. I would like to return to my home in
the Caribbean during the winter months, but I hate to close a
successful business when so many others are struggling. Do I take on
a partner, one that I can mentor to take my place? Or just close?
I’d love to hear some opinions from both junior and senior
