I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, because sweet it is.
I’ve been interviewing for a position at a nonprofit for the past couple of weeks and as of this past Monday they offered me the position and I accepted it. And was thrilled to learn it pays 29% more than what I’m making now, has more benefits and after my first two days, I’ll be flying to New York for a retreat of theirs.
This is great news especially having received it on the eve of my birthday. Best birthday gift to myself… ever!!!
But… that doesn’t mean my side hustling days are through. Not by a long shot. It just means I’ll be able to better fund the dream. And the dream is to still be self employed. That’s the prize and my eyes are still on it. But this new job at this new company means I’ll get the opportunity to learn from a real business how to run a business, how to treat employees and because it’s a nonprofit, how to work with what you’ve got. Which I think I got that a handle on that so far.
Yes, it feels like I’m moving closer to the goal and that feels great. One step at a time.
