A Day in the Life of ... Jaime? :P
How's your coffee this mornin'? :) Mine's yummy. Grabbed some in my office and I'm on the road headed out for some visits with employees.
What do I do? Yeah, I actually have a JOB! LOL I wish I spent all day at the coffee shop writing my little heart out. But I can't.
I am, wait for it, the longest titled person in the world: Director of Sales, Development, & Associate Relations. Yep yep. We acronym it to DOSDAR but if you tell anyone else that, their eye brows raise in complete confusion.
My day sort of breaks down with coffee first thing, then it's a hodge podge of projects and employee management throughout the day. I oversee our Ops and Sales Managers, help direct motivational programs for the employees, hire, fire, guide staff training, steer my admin in employee/HR management issues that involve insurances, FMLA, and the like, vision plan for leadership training for our management, assist the CEO in company vision and development, and try to have a pulse on the overall direction of the company as it relates to our people and sales. I really love my job. I love our people!! We have some phenomenal employees. The technology field of the cellular industry is something I never thought I'd build a career in, and yet, here I am. The good thing is, I only need to know people and understand sales, I don't need to know the insides of an actual cell phone, tablet, or hotspot.
So I'm visiting District West today. It'll be fun. I'll brainstorm more on my next book on the way there in the car. I might grab a few moments to write another scene on my novella which is quickly coming to a The End, and then I'll meet with staff and management. Onward to home, a few more minutes at the office to wrap up for the day and then home.
Home usually brings an element of familiar chaos. Two kiddos yelling "mommy" the instant I enter the door. Thank goodness my youth pastor husband gets home before me or we'd be eating dinner at 8 pm and it'd be burnt. I will admit that cooking and baking are quite low on my short list of talents. In fact, my husband claimed that household duty for the very survival of our family.
Then it's either family night or youth group night, with Cocomo Jo's AWANA Cubbies, and Peter Pan's snuggle butt time with Mommy reading Mator books. Bedtime by 8 pm and then at least an hour hammering out some word count before I work out (Ugh - when I'm motivated), and then bed. Sweet, blissful, bed.
Yep Yep. That's my day. How does your day break down? What are your favorite parts and most hated?
