Closed Condo and New Job
The past year in living and working Orange County took a lot out of me. I took an uninspired job that really didn't suit me well. At the time I felt like it was the only offer I was going to get in a poor economy. A year later the economy is a lot better, but still not that great. I am used to wearing a lot of hats and the position I had simply didn't stimulate me. I never felt excited. I need a more entrepreneurial atmosphere.
It;s kind of ironic that on the same day I closed on my condo that I would get a job offer as well. I got the call from a recruiter I had been working with for a position at a company who makes self-service kiosks seen in quick service and fast casual restaurants. I was offered a temporary position to coordinate and execute marketing activities for this company. The position would most likely go permanent after 3 months. It will depend on my performance and the VP of sales getting the approval. I am confident that it will happen. I will work my ass off to ensure it will happen. It is a risk taking on this job, but I need it in my life right now. I need something to drive me and push me. Finally, I will be able to wear a lot of hats and really get creative. I'm excited since the job will challenge me. What I had been lacking lately is a challenge. Things are slowly settling down. I have my home again. I am in the right place to do this.
I am so relieved that my job search is over, at least for now. Yes, there is a chance that it may not work out. But I believe in destiny. I believe I was meant to take this position and run with it. I know I will perform well. I have the confidence now. It's interesting how a living location can affect me so much.
