Who Moved My Cheese?
Monday -- January 30, 2012
CheesecakeI must say it's been quite a month! I was laid off from my job on January 4th unexpectedly. Despite the sudden loss I knew deep down I was ready for change... so off I went on a hunt for some new cheese :)

My New JOB!
www.USSearch.com
Amazingly I was only unemployed for two and a half weeks :) Trust me it felt like a lifetime! I couldn't sleep, I had no appetite... I couldn't rest till the gap was filled. Luckily I found the perfect opportunity at US Search. They offer great benefits and have an excellent team. My first day was January 23rd and so far it's been smooth sailing.

Print ON THE FLY
www.SmartPress.com
I have a client doing a special mailing that requires variable data printing. It's pretty neat. You provide a spreadsheet with a list of customers then each print gets unique information. I looked around at several print companies to find the best deal and ended up going with SmartPress.com. They have a lot to offer at affordable prices. Be sure to check them out!

Who Moved My Cheese?

Ironically just a few weeks before I lost my job I had read the book Who Moved My Cheese? I've always been an advocate for change but just like everyone else I get comfortable with routine and like having a sense of security. Reading this book prepared me for the new obstacle I was about to face... when my cheese was moved I moved forward excited for the new opportunities awaiting my arrival.
