From clerk to store manager in six months...I gotta say I'm pretty excited about it. Scared as hell, too- but the only thing I'm not totally sure of is how well I'll do at delegating. And I've been taking lots and lots and lots of notes on it.
It's true! I've got a notebook. Okay, more of it has just been paying attention.
I will have to be very, VERY careful if I don't want to stomp all over my health.
But I'll be able to afford things again- an apartment, I can get my car fixed, my own health insurance and my own furniture and my own internet connection, and after all of that's taken care of- games and cell phones and anime and maybe a nice notebook computer. Things that I've been going on about for several years at this point, how I need to take a look at that, not knowing when or if I'll ever have money of my own to even rent it with.
It's going to be stressful. In fact, the first couple of months are probably going to suck. The people there are hardly trained, and I'm going to be trying to break habits and get into new ones.
But it will be my store, and I'll do what it takes to make it good. And once it's good, I'll transfer down to Florida and make that store good. And then I'll convince them to convert the Movie Gallery in Daytona into a Hollywood Video and make that store good. And that will be my store.
That's the plan. We'll see if I'm smart enough to accomplish it.
