As I arrived at work, I had a funny feeling inside. A feeling that was following me around as I walked around my office, the showroom, from one corner to another of my work building. I didn’t remember. I cannot believe I didn’t remember.
I’m normally already so busy by five minutes into work that I don’t really even have time to check Twitter or any other social network… but today, I checked Twitter and Sully tweeted about it being three years since our buddy Billy Mays Jr passed away.
What an interesting and odd three years it has been.
This day in 2009? Dan and I were back in Kentucky tying up loose ends after our move to North Carolina.
This day today? We live in FLORIDA. The home of Pitchmen. The home of where our wonderful Florida family lives (even though we haven’t seen anyone but one or two members since last October, boo!)! Not to mention, Dan and I are working together with our boss and other co-workers building a company from bottom up. It’s amazing.
I am the marketing director (photographer, graphic designer, social media) and eBay sales person. I am a very, very, very busy lady all day every day that I’m working. Let me tell you something – TODAY – I hit $8,000 of eBay sales in 30 days and $18,000 in 120 days. Depending on where you come from, this may or may not be a big deal but for our company to have just really truly started up in March, yep. That’s a big deal to me.
My love for the business world is crazy. I think my dedication is partially for Billy and for Elaine (the teacher I always talked about that passed away) who taught business. I feel like I have to rise above the standards for them, to prove to the world that I can do it and do more than just the best that I can do.
Honoring Billy by watching Pitchmen tonight. I haven’t watched it in months.
One day, I truly hope that my dedication to my work and enthusiasm will bring me to be a part of the middle wo(man) in the DR industry or something close to it. I’m already thinking of my next steps of what’s going to happen after I’m done with my work here (which won’t be for a very long time I think).
Here’s to Billy – of which, along with millions of other people, I miss very, very much.
