I dropped $10 on the micro.blog Premium subscription. So I might as well see if I can get a podcast/microcast going.


Mic check, mic check.

This is Jake LaCaze.

Hard to believe it was only early last year that I was announcing to y’all that I was leaving oil and gas and trying my hand at marketing.

It was fun for a while, until it wasn’t.

Now I’m headed back into oil and gas.

Well, I’m really kind of headed back into energy, though oil and gas will be my immediate job responsibilities.

It’s an exciting time to be back in the energy space: Oil and gas is embracing other forms of energy. They’re no longer standing on their own.

It’s kind of like we’re all in this together. We know what’s ahead. We know what the stakes are.

We’ve got to figure it out.

Getting our energy portfolio right won’t be easy.

There are challenges that lie ahead, but with challenges come opportunities.

Necessity is the mother of invention. We’re at a time where we need innovation wherever we can find it.

That’s the journey I see myself on in the coming future, looking at the whole of energy and trying to figure it out and see what fits where and just exactly can we fix the problems we have ahead in a pragmatic way that benefits all involved.

So if you’re interested, come along.

Let’s figure this out together.
