New arrival. By way of introduction, I am a "retired" commercial banker with 20 + years of progressive experience. Responsibilities included sales management, credit/risk management, and business development. I interacted with many individuals with companies small ("mom and pop") and large (multi-national). I most recently worked for a bank that was recapitalized by a private equity funded group. As part of the management team of the bank prior to recapitalization, I was part of the past and not deemed part of the future. I have spent the last several months trying to determine "What next?". In coming across Click Millionaires, I have had an entrepreneurial flame stoked. My challenge is in finding the proper niche in which to launch.
I look forward to being an active participant in this community and hope to be inspired that I might inspire others.

As a former banker myself (although investment, not commercial), I bid you welcome!
Sounds like it's time for you to find a new path, and we'd be happy to help.
It sounds like you have a huge amount of financial industry expertise to draw upon. I look forward to working with you.
I guess all us former bankers think similarly. I wasn't as high up the ladder as you but back in 2005/6/7 I worked for SunTrust Bank as a customer service representative. It was a major eye opener for me about how much financial trouble our country was getting into. I'm surprised SunTrust is still around, and maybe only managed to survive due to their conservative lending practices in the Mortgage industry.
I'm glad you made it here. We are all having fun learning how all this internet stuff works. I just started working full time for myself back in January and every month that goes by is the best one so far. I never imagined I could make a living being self employed but this forum gave me the shove I needed.
Looking forward to getting to know you better,
Welcome, Leonard! Times of change make for great opportunities and it's cool to see that the entrepreneurial flame has been stoked!
Finding your niche is a great first step and I wish you all my best on your discovery process. Definitely post some questions or outreach for feedback when you're ready.
Cheers to your success!
