It looks like ShopHQ Invicta spokesman Michael Davis has said you can take this job and shove it.
We are wearing an Invicta watch right now that we bought from ShopHQ, but we haven’t watched an Invicta show for years on the No. 3 home shopping network. So we never saw Davis on-air. But he posted quite a rant on Facebook.
There comes a time in everyone’s professional career that you have to ask yourself some questions. Questions like…
Is there a future for me in what I am doing?
Am I being compensated at a level that matches the results I produce?
Am I respected (personally and professionally) by the people that I work for (or with)?
Do I really enjoy what I do for a living?
When the answer to all, most or some of these questions is “NO”, then it is time to make a decision as to whether or not you continue with what you are doing.
It is at this point that I inform you all that after asking myself these questions and contemplating the answers, I have just officially submitted my resignation to the Invicta Watch Group effective immediately.
As you read this, I am in the process of relocating myself to another part of the country (an area that I prefer to live in, not one that I was “forced” to) and will be, effectively, “hitting the reset button” on my life.
Life is just too damn short to spend it doing something that no longer makes you happy and that there is no future with. Especially with some of the circumstances that I have had to endure over the last few years.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you that have supported me over the last 5 years. It has been great getting to know alot of you and some of you have become close personal friends of mine and people that I talk to on a daily or near daily basis.
I have learned from you all and am humbled by the support that you have shown me. For that, I will be eternally grateful. For the hosts that I worked with on a regular basis (Kendy, Allison, Tim and Daniel…in no particular order), I appreciate you listening to me when I needed to bitch and the support that you showed me when I needed it the most. You all helped me to get better at my craft and supported me in ways that I cannot even begin to describe.
Without your support and sage advice, I would not have lasted as long as I have. To simply say “thank you” seems completely insufficient. And good ole Diamond Jim…thank you for getting me into this whole crazy job. It may not have went the way I wanted and it may not have ended in the best possible circumstances. But damn! It was one hell of a ride. Thanks my friend!
For those of you wondering what is next for me, the honest answer is that I have no idea. I am sure that there is going to be some “black helicopter” conspiracy theories that pop up (a lot of you know how the “fishy crew” can be). I would ask all of you not to participate in helping to spread such activity.
I am not going to work for another watch brand. I am not going to work for another network. I do have some personal projects that I want to work on and see what they can bring me and I will be speaking more on that soon. It is not my intention to try and trash any individuals or brands, so please let’s not go there.
I’ll still be posting a lot about watches and watch brands. However, if you are here on my page strictly for Invicta information, then now would be the time to unsubscribe yourself. Obviously, no hard feelings if that is the case. For those that wish to follow along as I move forward into this new chapter of my life, you are more then welcome to “ride along”.
In a later post, Davis went on to say that while he will no longer be working for Invicta, he would still be posting on Facebook and was “humbled” about the response to news of his exit.
Meanwhile, Davis is in the process of moving 1,500 miles away from Minnesota. He says he’ll keep us all tuned about his plans.
