I can't believe it, but I am nearing 6 weeks at my job. Based on my average hours, I pretty much know what my paychecks will be now. Since I do not get paid time off, and the office runs on the school holidays schedule, I am planning on saving a bit from each check toward those longer vacations...like 2 weeks at Christmas.
As I mentioned, it is a new business, owned by a husband/wife team. Both of them are terrific.
It has already been brought up to me that they plan on raising my salary. As a new business, they aren't able to do it right now. But it is already part of the plan.
Additionally, they would like me to learn a few other aspects of the business as we go. The reason....they would like to open a second office in a year and half to two years. And they would like me run it.
Now, all of this is in the future, and nothing is set in stone. But, it is a huge complement that this is something they are already thinking about.
If this works out, I would get to use my degree, Admin skills, and have management experience. Plus, being that I am part of all of this from the beginning...I am getting to share my input on things.
For now....I am working part time with a lower rate than I would like. I don't think my SAT gig is going to work out long term so I am trying to find something else to do.
I really want to get the moving debt off my plate and be back where we were a year ago. I am working on it!
