Despite all my complaining, it is a good job. There have been times when I have been seconds away from quitting, and then something will happen that makes it worth it to me again. I'm learning to be more assertive and I feel like this job has been and will continue to be great training for whatever I choose to do next.
Another great thing about this job is that Brady is working for the same company! He is the head of the sales department and has been able to focus on school and do this on the side. He just makes calls from home in his free time and he is such a good sales man!! It has been a great blessing to us to be able to have that extra income here and there!
During conference weekend we (Mill Harvest) were invited by Deseret Book to join their Conference Saturday Event! My boss left everything up to me, seeing as how I am in charge of all the advertising, but I didn't know it until he told me right then. I spent the week getting banners made, aprons made, buying the table decorations, as well as figuring out the set up of the table, getting all the order forms and handouts made, and trying to figure out how in the world we would be able to make samples without a kitchen. Luckily, with Brady's help, we got it all done and carted everything off to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building at 8am on Saturday morning. We set it all up and it looked GREAT! We had a prime spot with a window behind us and a really pretty view of the Salt Lake Temple. I was so sad when I realized that we forgot our camera. Luckily I have this cool MAC laptop that has a built in webcam/camera, so as a last resort I broke out the computer and took some pics to document the occasion.
Apparently the computer flips the images, so don't worry, the signs were not backwards!
It was a lot harder to take pictures from a laptop than you'd think!
We were there from 8am to about 4pm! We were definitely ready to go when the time came!
We talked to tons of people who were extremely interested and we received the contact info for about 400 people! It was a fun experience and definitely worth it!
