A Step Into The Future

I began my new job this week.

This Maneki-Neko sits on my desk; it has brought me luck!
A gift from Boss #1 from Japan.

The story:

Boss #1: Hired me in 2011 as executive administrative assistant, then he took another position in the company.

Boss #2: Great boss; he also took another position with another division.

Boss #3: During pandemic, my job title was eliminated, however Boss #4 offered me a position on the sales team.  I took it.

Boss #2, as a Corporate Global President now: "I need you, will you come work for me again?"

To Boss #4: "I must go!"

Being back in the swing of the executive team is delightful, and I've just begun to dip my toe into those waters.

I may drive to the office once a week for awhile, and The Eastside Cats will NOT have me for their human cat bed every single day.

But, keeping them in cat food is most impawtant, no?

Let's hop!

Congrats on your new job! Clearly you are very valued--it's always nice to feel appreciated! Though not sure the cats will be happy about your once weekly trips into the office!
