When Opportunity Knocks…or Calls December 23, 2008

This morning we learned that one of our new sales queens, Britney Menzel, was offered a job with the Department of Labor. Funny thing is, she wasn’t even looking! How many people do you know have been offered two jobs in five weeks…especially in this economy!
She was like the rest of us, interviewing for as many jobs as you can, hoping & deciding to get one call back that would lead to at least one job offer…she was of course offered a job here at TSheets & she took it, then she received the call back from the Idaho Department of Labor & decided to take that yesterday.

We wish her all the luck & know that she will thrive in her new position!

Top 10 Reasons Why Unemployment Doesn’t Suck December 8, 2008

lovin-chocolateYea, that’s right, I said it, unemployment doesn’t suck.  
And here is why.

1.  I had time to get my teeth cleaned
2.  I had time to talk to my dentist about his marketing practices
3.  He had time to tell me that what he was doing, and what he was spending was a big waste
4.  We had time to chat about what they had done in the past (when they didn’t have any money) and who those customers are and why they have stuck around from the beginning
5.  I had time to think…wow, I should start my own gig!
6.  I had time to think of the possibilities of what I could offer to companies
7.  I had my ego lifted by those wanting advice (in exchange for lunch!)
8.  I had options
9.  I had the confidence to know that I could succeed on my own
10.  I had the ability to say no to job offers because I had figured out and knew to my core what I was good at & that I could make it.

What did I do?  
I decided not to go on my own.  
I decided to make a difference to clients wanting to build their business in a tough economic time AND make a difference with a product I believed in could be part of that equasion.

But…I do know that if unemployment strikes again, I will be just fine.

Tip of the Day
If you believe in a skill that you have & know that you can change one persons life, you can change many.  
Jump & ye shall succeed.

 

My First Day of Work at TSheets November 11, 2008

So, I love my new job.  I love being employed.  I love being busy & knowing that what I know can & will make a difference in a company.  And that was my first day…today is day 2.

All 6 of us were in a impromptu meeting in the afternoon & I gave my opinion (I know, shocker!) on some marketing/sales thoughts.  I gave my SM speal and was told w/smiles: that is what we hired you for!  Big sigh! It is SO thrilling to know that a company believes in what I know & what I can accomplish.  

I look forward to help building awareness (which of course leads to sales) of TSheets and what it can do for the business owner when it comes to ease of use, reporting & flat out a time saver.  I look forward to coming up with results that will lead to ROI which will lead to so many nay sayers starting to blog & Twitter.

Heading to my first day of work at T-Sheets. Looking forward to it. It’s exactly 11 months to the day that I started at NPC, but this is going to be a new day and a new adventure and I’m looking forward to it.
