Description: This week will be a different kind of episode. My wife and I arrived back in Austin a little less than a week ago. We have a lot of things to do while we are here to get properly vaccinated. You should read my blog post from last week where I compared the COVID-19 response in Mexico and the US. We will be in Austin for a month to get both vaccination shots of the Pfizer vaccine. This is the longest we have been in the US in 2 and half years. I claim you learn more about your own culture when you go someplace else. That is so true returning to my home town of 40 + years and finding it is not the same place anymore. Some of this is due to the pandemic and changes in people’s behaviors. Some of this is due to a huge influx of people moving to the city. Some of this is I can view the city from a different perspective. I am not the same person who left Austin in June of 2018 and can look at it in a different light.

Description: This week I am speaking with Mike Harris CEO of Patina Solutions and Patina Nation. I was introduced to Patina several years ago as Patina Solutions provides fractional and interim leadership opportunities for the members of the Patina Nation community. Patina Nation is primarily made of executives and managers who have 25 or more years of experience and are looking for gig work. Below is Mike's bio: A proven and prolific entrepreneur, Mike has significant experience in starting and building professional and technical services firms. Patina Solutions is his sixth professional services start-up. As a co-founder of Patina Solutions and Patina Nation in 2008, Mike Harris saw the growing talent gap occurring as baby boomers who hold a high percentage of leadership positions and jobs were starting to retire from the workforce. He also saw that professionals with 25 years or more of experience were looking to work differently and he wanted to harness the power of these experts to fill client’s impending resource and skill gaps for projects and interim leadership roles.
