Musings of a Career Consultant

SoCal Texan in Bmore Leading Rock Stars

I Love my Family (my KWRI one, too)! May 21, 2012

Last night I got back from a 10-day trip to Texas. It was all family, all the time and 5 days of it was work… how’s that make sense? Stick with me, now.

The 1st weekend was my cousin’s graduation from Texas State. She’s actually my 2nd cousin but since we’re closer in age than her dad and I, we’ve never called each other anything other than ‘cousin’. I’m so stinkin’ proud of her and can’t wait to go to her next graduation since she’s not done impressing us yet!

The 2nd weekend I stayed with my uncle who lost his home in the Texas wildfires last year. They finished his home in January but he had the Housewarming Party this weekend. After that awful experience, they’re finally getting settled into their new life. I can’t imagine losing my whole life… I guess it’s a good thing so much of mine’s on facebook!

Now onto my KW family! They were the reason for the trip and I loved every second of my training in Austin. They say learning anything in our company is like drinking from a fire-hose and after walking out of 5 days of training with almost 1000 pages in material, I’d say “yea,” that’s pretty accurate. I’m so grateful that this company is all about Culture and making sure you’re acclimated before throwing you out into the world. I felt like my 1st 90 days in this position were almost nothing but training… I was VERY nervous walking into my 90-day Review. Good thing it was all positive 🙂

I’m blessed and fortunate that I’ve found a company that takes such good care of me. I can’t go to Texas everyday to see my family but every single day I get to feel at home. That is more of a blessing than I could’ve ever imagined for myself. I’m one lucky little lady.
