For years --- well, ever since I started my event planning career, I said I wanted to start my own company one day. I think that day is closer now.
I had an interview this afternoon. It was great -- job sounds like something I will really enjoy. Its in the same type of role I was in before but really focuses on the marketing and promotion of events instead of logistics. And even better, part time.
Which means when I was asked about my schedule, for the first time EVER, I was totally honest and said "I want to volunteer at my daughter's school. I want to sign the baby up for the fun little baby gym classes on a weekday morning. And I want to be able to see my family during daylight on a regular basis. I also want a career and job that I am good at and that I enjoy doing. Getting some bills paid would be nice too."
It also means that I will be home for the bus every day. And I will be able to volunteer to be the End of the Year Picnic chair at Grace's school. Even better, I will be able to spend some time devoted to starting my own company. Maybe one day I will be able to depend completely on it for my income. Until then, I am pretty psyched to just be taking the first steps.
More later. I promise. Until then, cross your fingers I get this part time gig; the rest of my plans totally depend on it.
