I was let go from my awesome part-time job today.
It was a wonderful opportunity while it lasted. About 4 months ago, the President of the company (who hired me) was unexpectedly fired by the owners. With him gone, I did everything I could to make the best of the job...the GM did her best to keep me around.
Well, this week SHE left the company to go work for previously fired president at his new, start-up company.
Let me quote the owner: "I'm throwing the baby out with the bath water." So, basically I was let go for knowing the ex-President.
Unfortunately, the new company is too new to afford a marketing/PR/salesperson at the moment.
I can't help but be sad. It was a good job that I liked. But, working directly for the owner would have been difficult at best...(Since this is a public blog, I'll leave it at that) Plus, I hate putting more pressure on Matt to provide our entire income. What a switch. At one point, I made 3-4x his income...and was miserable, traveling around in a high-pressure job.
So, I'm filing for unemployment and Matt's given me his OK to sell the BMW.
Do you know anyone who's desperate for a 1997 M3 with 140,000 miles on it? With all the racing extras, Matt's pretty sure we should ask $11,000.
We'll figure it out. We always do.
I think we'll start planning for a very scaled down Christmas:)
