Well, today was Day One of what I’m calling my Nutra Adventure. It was really fun. I could hardly sleep last night for I was so excited to get up and get to work. I felt just like a child on the night before the first day of school.
I really enjoyed meeting my fellow co-workers. Nick from HR was great and we had a lot of fun going over my benefits. I have to say that the CEO is very generous and has created a killer benefits package. He explained to me how the new benefits package cost the company an additional 2 million but that he felt it was worth it and important for them as a “health and wellness company” to walk their talk.
My office needs some work. It’s a nice location and I can see out a lovely window across the hall. I don’t yet have my treadmill desk nor do I have much else of anything. Nick and I were laughing as I couldn’t find a pen. He snuck away and returned with a stash of post-it notes, pens, highlighters, paper pads, and a box of Kleenex. It felt like Christmas! And those were just stocking stuffers because next we headed down to the IT Department where I was given a new iPhone 6 Plus S and a new MacBook. The IT Department isn’t too keen on Apple products so I spent a good 3 hours at the AT&T store getting everything ported over. In fact, I didn’t get home till 6:30 pm.
Oh, this was funny. I was able to introduce myself at the executive meeting at 9am. The equity group had flown in to go over budgets and such. I was invited to come join and introduce myself and then I was excused. It was funny cuz I thought I was an executive haha. My ego needs a good check every now and then so it was good for me. And after seeing how long everyone was tied up in those budget meetings, I was grateful I was dismissed as it enabled me to make a dent in my “to-do list.”
Then, while I was busy working away, Dave stopped in my office at noon to see if I could accompany him and Chad on a last minute business trip to Tampa. We are on a confidential acquisition mission. I’m really excited about the opportunity and what I’ll learn. I’m also pumped to be able to share my expertise. I had a couple of opportunities already today as Stan and Nic stopped in to get some help and Amazon advice for the international expansion.
I have several items still undone tonight that will require a late night. I’m trying to finalize the transfer of KickFire Classics, Svêlo, and KickFire Marketing. I’ve got a few clients that still need some hand-holding during the hand-off as well. It will be nice when everything is all tied up. I’m feeling super grateful for all my many blessings. I’m excited to get to know everyone at NutraCorp. My mission each day will be to serve the company and my co-workers with all my heart, might, mind, strength, and soul. Here’s to the beginning of another wonderful chapter in my epic life. Day One, such fun!
