Someone’s missing from Photographic Art

A Piece Missing

Julian back at workSadly, Julian Rey Saenz is no longer with Photographic Art by Russel Ray Photos.

I had capitalized the company as a full-time enterprise for six months, and Julian was working 20-24 hours a week.

We couldn’t get the company to grow as fast as I wanted it to, so I have taken it to a part-time enterprise, which meant that Julian’s job was eliminated.

Of course, I need to find something that will pay the bills. I don’t know what that’s going to be right now. I just know that it can’t be home inspections because my 59-year-old knees and shoulders just don’t like crawling around under houses and up in attics anymore. The money I make from home inspections is being spent on aspirin and Ibuprofen to alleviate the pain. Hmmm. Maybe I should buy stock in the pain-killer manufacturers……..

Julian Rey SaenzI have every confidence that Julian will find his next great job very quickly. In my 48-year business career with 33 companies—most of them startups—and over 1,100 people hired, I would put Julian at the very top, number one with a star.

Never did I have to explain anything to Julian more than once. He has one of the best memories I have ever witnessed, is an extraordinarily good typist, and knows his way around computers, software, and the Internet. For those few things which he did not know, he learned very quickly, and his contributions were always clear and professional.

Thank you, Julian, for all that you did, and helped me do, and for simply being the AWESOME person you are.

thank you

      Thanks. I have no doubt that he will. I wrote a letter of recommendation for him and gave him some ideas on where to go to get a great job that can use his skills. I don’t think he’ll be stuck at McDonald’s or Walmart………

    Sad to hear about that, Russel. Please post Julian’s info, so whoever can, may be able to help him landing his next gig. I’d also suggest him to create a profile on Linkedin and go from there. Thanks

    The best of luck to Julian, he will be an asset to any company. Our knees and shoulders are harder to move around as we mature that is for sure. Anyone over 50 can understand. I ofte wonder how I can feel as if I am still in my 20’s but when I get up to move around I feel as if I am in my 80s!! lol

    I wish my bosses did that much for me when I was ‘packaged out’. Some of the BS lines I was fed over the years were pure rubbish. This is genuine, heartfelt and a true testament to character – for both of you. Wishing you both luck in your endeavours. – Suzan –
