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!
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.

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 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.
