        Hiya all,

        I have been very fortunate to start and build a company over the years that was very successful and allowed my husband to retire at 42.

        The ecomony hit and forced buyouts made me go from (lets say very wealthy) to (OMG, do I need to apply part time at McDonalds) to keep our home and some sort of normal lifestyle.

        Anyway..... Since I work from home, I wanted to find something where I could continue to do so. 

        A perfect opportunity fell in my lap.  I've know the new company owner since I was 16.  I am totally 'green' at what he does and he gave me the title of um.....'operations manager and director of sales'... ah...um... ok..... is that something I can 'wing it' or 'fake my way through'?!?!? 

        I made  a first call today (someone who worked next door to me in 1996) and he remembered me.  Said timing was perfect and I think I just landed the biggest account in the new companies 25 year history.

        Lunch meeting on Monday.. 

        Would dearly appreciate fingers crossed for me.

        Awww,Gabby,our darling friend who always has good things to say and kind to others...

        First, let me say this...


        Things are very tough for many people right now so you re not alone,sweetie!

        I am soooo sooo excited for your new adventure and don't you worry about anything cause you will do just fine.

        I remember how nervous I was when I first started working in here due to the lack of knowledge and the language barrier but I always know one thing...
        You can do anything if you set your mind to...

        just like this quote,

        The important thing is to strive towards a goal which is not immediately visible.  That goal is not the concern of the mind, but of the spirit.  ~Antoine de Saint-

        Monday will be a big day for me too...mine is going to the doctor...heh but I have been scared and worried so please wish me a good luck as well! <3

        Hi Gabby,

        In this life we sometimes need a bit of luck and I think your time for a bit of luck is now.

        Sounds as though you may already have it in the bag but I do wish you good luck and I have my fingers crossed for you.

        Let us know how it goes.

        Awww Nan - I hope it goes well for you on Monday.  I wish you luck too  - I got my fingers crossed for you and hope all is well  xxx.

        Gabby, it definitely sounds like God set this one up for you! Wing it, fake it, shake it and bake it
        With God all in the mix, you can't go wrong!

        Congratulations! Fingers and toes crossed

        Thank You.... Thank You... Thank You.....!!

        I landed the deal. 

        Better yet, maybe, the guy who is a real estate developer and doesn't purchase property under 100 million (yikes), is considering me taking over all of his accounts for billing/finance. 

        Hmmmm.
