I try not to blog about my job, but Friday was a good day. I graduated from training and am now moving into the transition stage! This is exciting because it means that in two weeks time, when I become a full fledged Trusted Advisor (what a crock!) I will be paid a dollar more when I work after 6pm and on weekends, I will be allowed to work overtime and get paid for it and I get paid a percentage (a very, very small percentage) on any sales I might make. I don’t usually care that much about money, but I need every cent I can get for this trip. The truth is that isn’t just a trip for me. If I’m successful I will have a new career and a new life!
