2006 is a great time for you to go public, even if you'd rather just get on with the day-to-day tasks of building your business and career. Your career horizons will expand quickly and dramatically if you follow up on this, and your teammates and customers will profit from their connection to you. You've got a well-deserved reputation for working hard and playing by the rules, so don't be surprised if folks at all levels of your organization take time out to praise you and ask for advice on all manner of topics. Practice accepting compliments with aplomb, as they'll be coming whether you're ready or not. From late spring through the summer, you should be extremely happy with whatever decision you reach, and even after that you'll know that you did the right thing. Toward the end of the year, you'll be able to coast a little and enjoy some personal time to do whatever interests you most.
