I’m not sure where to start or even what heading to post this under.

I will be changing jobs in another week. I am super excited about the new opportunity but also sad about the old......

I have always had my resume posted on Monster or Indeed. It was not so much that I was looking for a job but more to see what was out there being offered to my employees. Occasionally along the way I have been offered jobs. I have always turned them down. I am NOT a job hopper. I have had 2 meaningful jobs in my life. One for 17 years and the other for 7. Then that time off for moving south. And then going back to work for the past year for my old boss in a new company.
I won’t go into the good bad or uglies about this company I am finishing up with. Why bother with any of that right? I will just say that their business practice does not line up with mine.  

So I will be finishing up in the next week or so and will be handling their dirty work in that time.  

On the 19th I will begin working with the womens clothing  retailer Coldwater Creek. I have decided to manage one of their locations (and lucky for me they wanted me!)which is less than 5 minutes from my home.

The positives: Close to home, no travel other than training, new challenge (I’ve never done clothes), better pay and very positive people! I like that!

The negatives: It’s not in the beauty product biz, I will know nothing other than my common sense, The challenge of retraining myself to be in ONE location, having to say good bye to the people I liked.

Now the dirty work that remains for me to complete will not be fun and it will be altering the lives (short term I hope)of some of the people that currently work for me. I could have just waited it out and let it be handled after I left. But that is no way to treat people that worked hard for me.  

So I will be busy over the next few weeks wrapping up and saying good bye. And then training after that.....

Wish me luck!
