Work has been really trying. Challenging. Not in a good way.
Working for a start up is not easy. I knew that coming in. I basically helped to start two churches. I worked with my friend when she started her salon. The Korean company I worked for was a start up here in the US. Building something from the ground up means losing sleep, penetrating a market, building a customer base, creating processes.
I know what it takes to start something, and to be successful.
What I am not used to is beating my head against a brick wall, working with people who like to tell me what it takes to be successful but who are not out there pounding the pavement.
When I worked for the implant company, the managers of the offices were out peddling the implants. They learned the product, the visited doctors’ offices and they sold stuff. I did what it took in the office to make sure that my manager could be out selling.
This time, something is different. There’s a spirit of focusing on past successes rather than building a new thing that is successful.
I’m frustrated. I want benefits. I want pay. I want a modicum of security. I’m at the end of my rope.
