Intern, Interview, & Internet

August 13th, 2014 at 07:13 am

Things are going great here. Big Grin

Interview went well, my internship is in full go!

It is a little intimidating right now, I am worried that I wont be able to keep up, or do the expected jobs. But I am going to try my hardest! Hoping he will be patient with me, and teach me.

The opportunity is even better than I thought. My new employer is on the beginning stages of starting up a Wordpress company, and he has big plans. He was offered $70 an hour to work on Wordpress websites for someone, and he decided if they are making enough money to pay him that much, why don't he just start his own and cut out the middle man. He has the knowledge, and connections to make it a reality. I am the first to be hired, so that means I am on the front end. Who knows, in a couple years we could be the new facebook! lol.

I am really keeping my fingers crossed that by the end of the internship that we will have enough business that I can do that full time and make enough to live off of.

He has already hand picked another person to work with us. Another student that I have taken classes with before. He was another overachiever like me, we were both top of the class. I think it is kind of funny that the teacher was scoping out potential employees from his classes.

I can tell it is going to be a large learning curve, and hard work for a while until I get confident in my abilities. I hope I can keep up at my normal job. I am already trying to figure out ways I could quit and find a less labor intensive job. But in the mean time I will just hang on for the ride.

Employer is paying $50 of my monthly internet. Which is great since it is going to be between $75 - $85 a month. I felt bad making him pay the entire amount, so I just suggested the $50. That is still a large help. I sent the application off today. They said it should take about a week and I will have internet!! *happy dance*

Trim is going up in the house. Smile Just have to put the poly on and we will have door trim in our livingroom.

    Wow! You'll have a full plate with the heavy demands of your current employer plus the internship, learning and time demands as well as goats and family obligations. I hope DH is onboard, patient and understands how much he'll need to pitch in and help out.

    Wishing you well, so excited about your future

    Make sure you keep track of the internet cost-it may be an un-recouped business expense you can write off for your taxes. There may be other things you can write off-especially if you own your home. Talk to an accountant and make sure you have the record keeping in place.
