So, Where Have You Been?

It’s been a while since we’ve last talked. I’ve been a little busy with the holidays and my new position, so I figured I’ve give you an update on what has transpired thus far.

I started right before Christmas [talk about a great present]. I have a great office full of young, energetic, driven people. Everyone has a very laid back feel, all the while truly working their tails off. I’ve really found the culture and atmosphere invigorating. Consistently, I’ll find myself looking at the clock and being shocked at how much time has gone by in the day. This feeling is entirely contrary to my experiences in the past. I’m not bored, I’m not trying to figure out something to do, rather I’m being challenged on a daily basis to solve the puzzle that is how Facebook fits into the marketing mix of small businesses.

It helps that they hooked me up with a bunch of fun toys which keep me motivated. I truly am all Mac’ed out now. I really enjoy the fact that the company wants me to have the most cutting edge tools to do my job at the highest level. The company as a whole has a lot of interesting things coming down the pipeline and I’m pumped for the challenges that lie ahead!

1st Day of my Grown up…..

Today was my very first day of a legitimate job. Now, I’ve been saying it’s my first grown up job, but I’ve decided playing around on Facebook isn’t the most grown up thing. FINE BY ME!

I woke up to the sound of elephants above my head. It was 15 minutes before my alarm, but for once I was okay with it. I really felt like it was Christmas morning and I was about to rush down and open all my presents. I got ready and was out the door by 7:45am [haven’t seen that time in a little while]. I have to commute now, it’s about 45 mins, an hour in traffic.

I walked into my new office and I immediately felt like home. They had my workstation all set up and I was welcomed in as a part of the team immediately. This is the beauty of a small company. Everyone knows everyone and there is a very familial atmosphere.

The day was very much like syllabus day in college. There’s a lot of paperwork that can get tedious and boring, but I had all kinds of adrenaline and excitement to keep me going strong without ever feeling like the day got long. I played around on my new computer to get it all setup and then spent the rest of the day inculcating myself with everything GrowthWeaver.

It was a fantastic day, and I can’t wait to get back tomorrow morning!
