Full Circle

In March 2007, during my senior year of high school, I was interviewed at school by a manager of a local country club. Several of my friends also applied and we were all interviewed for a variety of open positions, ranging from maintenance to golf attendants to banquet work. Truth is, we all thought it sounded fun and we all needed summer jobs. So when the opportunity came, we could not pass it up.

I had a great conversation with the manager and felt pretty good about it afterwards. Fast forward to immediately after school that day (like an hour after I interviewed) when I got a phone call letting me know I was being offered a job within the banquets staff and should come by that day to fill out my paperwork. It was an opportunity I could not say no to, and I started working.

This job ended up being one of the best jobs I have ever had, I absolutely loved getting to work a variety of events for people and working along side amazing people. I worked at the country club until december 2010, and left due only because I was getting more involved in college and could not get home to work.

Working at the country club was the start of what appears to be a career of hospitality-related work. I learned so much from this job, from F&B skills to customer service and critical thinking and problem solving. Two of the best bosses I have worked for were here too, along with several other banquet staff.

Now, six years after being initially hired, I am once again returning to work at the country club. I will still be working on banquets, but this time I will be leading events. I have worked in a variety of roles over the years, roles that I now know have been preparing me for this position and potentially more. I am excited to return to a place I love, doing work I enjoy and am good at too. I start again this week, and am excited to see where this leads.

So there’s a little update on where I am right now in life. I’ll be sure to post more in the future, but for now know I am happy to be returning to the place where my professional career and personal development truly began, many years ago. I know this is where I am supposed to be, we will have to see what happens!


Pen to Paper…The process begins!

So I have mentioned before, on my bucket list, that I want to someday write a book. I am not sure if it will end up being published, but I want to write for sure. I have tossed around several ideas in my mind, and I have settled on what I will begin to write about. I know it is going to be a lengthy process, but I figure, I am not in must of a hurry so why not. I am working on establishing a timeline to keep me on track. The first step will be creating the outline for my writings, followed shortly thereafter by research, research, and even a little more research.

I am sure you are wondering what I will be writing about. Well….guess you will just have to wait a little bit longer šŸ˜‰ It is not that I do not want to share what it is about, because I really do! However, I am keeping this a secret for now. That being said, there are some of you that I will be reaching out to for help at various points…most likely I will be posting here too to ask for help from my readers. That being said, if you would like to help (know of good resources to look into, proof reading, sound board for me to bounce ideas off of, etc…) let me know!

What I can tell you is that it will be theological in nature. I will be going in depth with aĀ theologicalĀ idea and attempting to provide real life examples related to the idea as well as practical ways for people to integrate the idea into their everyday lives.

It should be a bit of an adventure as I set forth to do something I never really have before! We shall see where it may lead, but I am hoping for the best. Your prayers and support would be greatly appreciated as I dive on in. I will post here when the time is right!
