A Visit from the Boss!
My boss came to my store yesterday for the first time since he handed it over to me. He gave me a week’s notice that he was coming and my team was awesome and worked really hard to help me make some major improvements before he got there. He was actually wowed with the progress. I was so excited I thought I was going to cry! Seriously. I took some pictures the night before so you could see some of the differences. There is still a ton of work to be done to get the store caught up and running smoothly, but we have made some major improvements.
My boss is awesome. We walked the store and as we did, he would compliment the things we had done and give me pointers to help me along with the things that still need to be done. He helped me clean out some things that we didn’t need that were in my way and just really built me up in general. I felt so good when he left because he was so happy and so helpful.
I am so happy to be back working and doing something that feels good to do. I am getting a good physical workout every day and getting paid for it so I am already losing some of the weight I had gained over the last couple of years because of not working and being depressed. I also feel so much better mentally, not to mention financially. I’m just happy all the way around right now.
