New-ish Chapter?

So at the push of a friend and the Mrs. I’m submitting my application for a job in the morning. Something I haven’t done since I was let go when the local company I worked for was purchased by a BIG company, and at the time they did offer me a position in Reno but wasn’t a fit that I felt right for me, thus after an extra week or two, I was fully let go.

Fast forward nearly 6 years of consulting, hosting, touch of graphic design and a lot of working for a meal later 😀 times once again are changing and while I have a few things on the docket, this is one that I once again would enter the IT Director position but at a much larger scale – sure one could say when you work on servers which power sites on the internet you work for a WORLDWIDE set of people, let’s be honest, it’s much different than desktop support.

I’m honestly interested to see what it could be. If I get the position I’d be making the largest salary I’ve ever had in my life, even working for myself, it’d mean some big changes, and honestly, I’m not sure it’s a good fit, but I’m up for a challenge.

So if you think of it, I’d appreciate a prayer or three. Final formatting adjustments on the resume in the AM, making sure the app looks good, then submitting it and saying a prayer. Could be a good thing, may say:

Woah! You’re exactly what we wanted, let’s go for the higher end of the pay scale!

At which point:

I’d of gone car, but I don’t want to set any false expectations. Plus everyone loves tacos. So tomorrow we’ll give it a go and see how things turn out, might have a new IT Directorship here soon, it starts in July if I get it, so likely a lot of legwork between now and then but one step at a time, meetings galore this week, T-Ball, Swimming, Music, etc. going to be a busy one so wrapping it all up!

Night!

PS:307 – The PS Project

While the idea was to PS (Post Something) for 365 days in a row, I obviously failed. Some might be able to balance all of life, six companies, 2.5yr old, bills, cooking, driving, trips, etc. – Sadly in that wild-life timeline, Posting to a blog didn’t fit in the top priority listing. Which has given me pause to writing as a side job, maybe it isn’t the right time.

I need a lot more scheduling and planning if I hope to launch a site in which the primary content is my writing. Long ago with HappyPalm and others, it was easy, I was passionate about what came on my phone, what news was a trend, it was in my face, and my responsibilities were fewer.

I want to get to the point where I can write, where I can do what I’m doing right now – typing, getting my thoughts out there, or the steady improvement of recording a vLog style video to produce and handle monthly for customers, but maybe find a way to do it nightly. I need a stronger schedule. Soon.

Taxes are coming. I am dreading them on the one hand, however this next week I’m going to sit down, crunch the numbers, get it all lined up so all I need to do? Plugin numbers, add all of it into Turbo Tax, see the good or the bad, get it sorted out and got it done. I don’t want to dread till the 18th; I need to find an accountant, likely need to re-structure how I do business – anyone knows anyone trustworthy and reliable?

Work has been a tad nuts, really working to get things ironed out smoother and smoother, just been one of those things where just when you think it’s going to get easier? Monkeywrench. Last week got one of those, and this week still sadly sitting waiting on one contract I have to pay out 3, going on four invoices – all of which I had hoped would be in the bank already, one is 60 days overdue today. Oi. Not the first time a customer’s done that – again I need to find a better way to handle these sorts of things.

I want to get back into the swing of the PS project; I want to get back into the swing of trying to write something every-day. I have pondered the start of the day and the end of the day, at the moment? Leaning towards the start, but imagining it’ll stick to the end. For now? Wrapping it up.
