Do Something You Love

After I lost my job in July, people kept telling me to "find something you love, and do it". Well, the concept is great, but the execution is tough in the job market today. But, I was determined. I knew it was a risk, but I just didn't want to take the first "dead end job" that came along. Been there, done that. So, I started to make a list of the things that I love and that are important to me.
Children, Music, Family, Being a Mommy and Wife [even though I'm not a Mommy yet, its still important to me] and having some flexibility at work were at the top of the list.

Enter the amazing Shauna with BurbMom. If you read my last post, you know a little bit about the site. I have joined the team to work Sales and Marketing, mostly to help them sell more ad space to local businesses. I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the other two founders/owners, but if they are friends of Shauna, they must be great. Anyway, I do this job out of my home [although Shauna's home is the HQ] and then of course I will go to places of business as well. I think its going to be an amazing ride, and I am so excited to be involved with this wonderful site that meets so many of my "do something you love" needs.

Of course, paying the bills is important too, so as I build up a client base and start selling some ad deals for BurbMom, my cousin has hired me on with some temporary work [also mostly from home] and I am working a few hours a week at Rock Pointe Church providing childcare.

For your enjoyment [or laughter] here I am working from home...yes that is a blue tooth in my ear. I love it. Get off me. ;)
