I did my last inspection yesterday and today I finished my last day as a free-lance personal assistant. Companies have paid up and I can now settle into the three day weekend. I start my corporate job on Tuesday. As much as I’ve enjoyed building up a business I am very happy to not have to run around so much. Even though it was paying bills it was a lot of wear and tear on my body, mind, and car! Scrambling for jobs has also interferred with my writing. I miss sharing my thoughts and life on this blog. I feel at peace and I can finally have a regular schedule again.
I am very thrilled with the benefits a Fortune 50 Company can give me, one of which is tuition reimbursement. I will devote myself to learning all the tech and the workings of this company. My friend at the company who is a Hiring Manager says I would make an excellent Corporate Trainer. I’ve been assured by her and the managers I spoke with that in one year I can make my first move within the company. Finishing my degree will go a long way and I made a promise to my daughter that I will have my degree by her high school graduation.
My background has always been administrative so going into tech surprised my friends. Along the way I’ve picked up tech skills. I have an aptitude and once I’m shown something I retain it. I’ve learned by trial and error and by doing research and asking questions. My 12 weeks of training will be intense, but I’m ready for the challenge and the opportunities ahead.
And wouldn’t you know it, yesterday Coach was offered something big. We are both so excited. We’re taking some big steps and it feels so good.
