I have worked for a new company since June and although a risky move, it has been the biggest blessing. Honestly this company and job has ruined me! I can’t imagine EVER doing anything else again…other than what I do.
At the beginning of 2006, I just began to melt down. I wasn’t sleeping. My health was failing, due to the stress of my j-o-b. I couldn’t be a quality care giver to my son once I got home at night. I needed a miracle and prayed to God….”I can’t do this anymore…please help me.”
Within weeks this opportunity presented itself, via my sister’s urging me to consider her company. It would be a straight commission job and any money I’d make…would be completely up to me. Okay…how many of you would really jump at that? I just felt God’s tug at my heart when I interviewed and knew I should take a leap of faith.
All I have to say is THANK YOU GOD! Since I don’t have the luxury of being a full time stay at home mom, I have the best of both worlds. I know in today’s world, moms really struggle on the work vs stay at home thing. With my new job, I have so much more quality time with my son. I office part from home and a few hours from an office. Instead of leaving at 7:30 in the am to drop him off to my mom’s for the day….I have until 9:00. During the day, I set my schedule and I bring home more money than I ever would have been able to at my previous job. Now don’t get me wrong….I’m far from rolling in it. We’re making ends meet….but what I sell….I get to take 50% home. I am not lining someone else pocket….I’m lining my own. Instead of taking home 4%, like at my previous employer, I get 50%.
The environment with my superiors is better than I could have ever dreamed. So far, they are completely supportive of me and my plans. Instead of criticizing me when I could have done better…they ask me where I want to be and how I intend on getting there. I have never experienced a company that actually cares about me in that capacity….they really do support. I’m not under their thumb, not like where I came from.
I just wanted to blog a few seconds to say….I love my job….did I jinx myself? Hope not!
