A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a former co-employee. She offered me a job, stating that she knew I would be the perfect fit. She admitted that she felt a little guilty stealing me away from Curves (she thought I was still at the old location) but that she could offer me more money, no night or weekends, and advancement.
What's a girl to do?
I applied of course.
I told my new boss about the offer and that I felt guilty about possibly leaving her gym. Mel told me that if the same offer were made to her that she would take it.
"Go for it!"
I had three interviews, the last one being this afternoon. I've been offered the job at a wage well above the going rate, even though I have no experience in this line of work. My new boss said that she felt confident offering me the post and the pay because she feels I will bring a lot of experience and enthusiasm to the position.
I'm super excited!
Another wonderful thing is that I can still work at the gym and continue learning about management and ownership. My heart is still set on owning my own gym some day.
There have been a few people who assumed that I was "looking" for a new position, but I swear I wasn't. It just fell into my lap and it's such a great opportunity that I couldn't pass it up.
It means I'll be able to pay to have a new fence built, have the house re-plumbed and support some of the ministries we've been unable to support in the past.
It means my Beloved can breath a little easier.
It means I can help Boy and Girl with life expenses.
It means full time....gulp.
Not really! I'm really looking forward to learning something new and seeing where it all takes me.
