So, as many of you know (or don't know, can't remember who I've told), I work as a personal assistant to Patty Burling. She is the owner of Simply Elegant events and Mountain Avenue Bridal. I have hit my six week mark working with her and I must say, I love my job...and I'm great at it!
Let's start with Saturday. Saturday I sold a dress. An expensive one. It was our giveaway weekend (we were giving away a Vegas trip, limo service for their wedding and a hair/makeup for the bride) and we were booked solid. I worked five hours and sold one dress. Not bad for someone that doesn't really work the boutique!
So typically my duties are do to personal and professional duties for the owner. They generally include anything from cleaning her house to arranging a flight...anything...think Devil Wears Prada. That's the kind of duties I have.
Well, I own my own company and it's just not going anywhere. So, I told Patty that I'd work for her for longer than my initial thought was. That's when she started throwing good news to me!
First piece: I have two titles now: Personal Assistant and Wedding Planner!! Woo hoo!! I could shit a brick...literally. The other girl, Megan, is great at what she does and as a team we are going to rock!
Second piece: I am the "go to" girl for our new branch that just opened in Glenrock, WY. I will be in charge of appointments/scheduling and also questions. I can't wait!
Thirdly: I'm going to do a majority of the writing for our NEW magazine...She Said Yes! I can't wait. When I really try (aka putting effort in) I can write like nobodies business. I can't wait.
Overall, today was a good day. I love my job. My job makes me happy. My life is getting happier and happier.
Hope y'all had a great day! God bless!
