New Developments! YEAH!
On June 14th, I said “SEE YA!” to my desk job and “HELLOOOOO!” to working full time for Matador Network. Spending time with the Matador crew really helped me get closer to the company. We had a lot of great conversations and made some serious developments. When I left, I was super excited about the programs to come, and find out where I fit in those plans.
That realization came quite quickly. After a swift trial period, I was offered the role of social media manager at Matador Network. Playing around on Facebook and RTing people is no joke – I quickly realized this was a definite full-time gig. When I was offered a salary that was more than double what I made at my desk job, I pounced on the opportunity. Here was a way I could live my dream of working from home, for a company that I cared about, and an easy out to an old job I had grown to hate.
It’s been an exciting couple of weeks. I’m all set up in my home office, with my maps and healthy snacks for inspiration, but there is still a lot to learn and a lot to adjust to. I have a feeling however, that I am going to like this lifestyle more than I bargained for…
But for now, when you see an update on one of our social media platforms, feel free to say “Hi!”
