They Asked, I Said Yes…Today, I Begin a New Chapter

I've been lucky. Opportunities don't Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my book of life. Well actually, it solidifies all of the hard work I’ve been putting into this current chapter, so you could either consider it a new beginning or a great ending. Your call!

If I could choose the perfect company to work for, I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I’d choose Collective Bias.

If I could build the perfect website to uplift, help, and promote others, I’d build SoFabConnect.

If I could choose my own job and title, I’d choose to be SoFabConnect Manager.

If I could write my own job description, it would go something like this: UPLIFT OTHERS. Share fabulous content. Support and promote brands I love and trust. Feature fellow Social Fabric members that I want to promote, and uplift. Share the workings of the best company on the planet by highlighting team members and what they do to promote all of the above. Work with an amazing team to UPLIFT OTHERS. Inspire people, in their everyday lives, to craft, create amazing family meals, spend time with their family through amazing content created by the most creative people I know. And…UPLIFT OTHERS.

If I could choose two of the most supportive people I know, Brad Lawless and Sandy Jenney, to report to, I would.

If I could choose a team of coordinators to assist me in the growth of this site that will uplift others and brands, I’d choose three of the nicest and hardest working women I know, Mimi Baker, Heather Brummett, and April Decheine.

BUT, I didn’t have to choose. They chose me. How lucky am I? OK, maybe not totally luck. I’ve worked, and I’ve worked hard. I’ve contracted on many levels for over 2 years now. And you know what? They like me. They really, really like me. And today, I’m a full time employee for Collective Bias. You know what I’m doing? The job that I wrote for myself! How cool is that? Seriously, I feel like I’m living the dream.

Excited? You bet ya! Anxious and nervous? Yes, just a bit. But I’m ready to take this on and UPLIFT OTHERS. This is what I do. This is who I am. This is why I’m so PROUD to be associated with, and employed by, a company that truly “gets” me and knows that being a “cheerleader” is what I was meant to be.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to work. I’m about to do some UPLIFTING and it feels awesome.

  2. This uplifts me to pieces. We have traveled this road together and look at us now! Did we ever want this…yes indeed. Did we believe it would happen…perhaps in a tiny part of our heart we gave voice to the dream. You will find many times that you actually stop for a moment and squeal…”I have a JOB!!!” I am still doing it! Happy dancing for all the dreams that CB fulfills each day. Go uplift…I am going to call you underwire from now on!!! 🙂
