AnnouncementI have a shop! I have a shop! I have a shop!
About a month before Christmas I moved my whole life to a new city at the other end of the country to manage a store. Unfortunately Mother Nature had ideas that didn't correspond with the plans I had when I took the position - the shop is now a certified Danger Zone and we have no idea when/if ever it will be opened again. Thankfully Lady Luck intervened and another store is opening not too far away - I have been offered and accepted the management of this store - on whatever basis I like in regards to the future of my original shop.
I am totally thrilled. FINALLY some stability, some routine, some order after the constant (excuse my pun) shake ups.
For a month I have been a manager in name only - after I lost my shop, I started losing my team. I have been piggybacking on other managers and living in a limbo which wasn't getting me anywhere personally or professionally.
Its going to be amazing to have my own shop to run my way again.
