God, I’m exhausted. I’ve been thinking 5 full days a week for 4 full weeks. I cannot believe that I actually signed up for this. But I did, so I’m going to stick it out. Here are the things I love:
- The People. They are awesome. I’ve still not met a not-nice or politically motivated person. Everyone seems sincerely interested in the best interest of the company.
- The Supporting Technology. The new company has the best supporting software… for example, they use WebEx and not LiveMeeting. I cannot tell you how much easier this makes remote meetings. From creating a meeting, joining a meeting, giving and taking presenter mode, and most of all, performance. It truly is remarkable how much easier this makes my job.
- Internal Systems. Wow, what a difference. They use Fidelity for 401k, SalesForce.com for managing opportunities (customers, prospects, etc)… honestly, this makes taking care of business, personal and business so much easier.
These are just the little things that make a huge difference in my day to day life. And it matters to me because I want to spend my time making money, not doing house-keeping…
I’m exhausted and I’m heading to bed soon. Tonight is the first night that I’ve not worked… .I’m having a cocktail and watching recorded TV shows from the last 4 weeks (who doesn’t love 30 Rock, the Office, and Family Guy?). I’m heading to bed in a few minutes…. exhausted but smiling. And tomorrow I KNOW I have a full day of work… I have meetings until 5pm.. who would have thunk that this Paula would work a full Friday???
