So we are all curious…what the heck do you do?!? A secretary and an assistant, hmmm – whoo hoo! You go girl! We think that you gotta be a lawyer in a rocking law firm, I think that it also could be sales or marketing . Maybe running a medium size business? It’s gotta be something that you have to dress up for and have working lunches at nice restaurants. It seems like a lifetime ago that I thought I’d have a secretary and an assistant, but it turns out that I’m not well suited for any of the jobs that I listed above. I tend to be a quieter worker, I like to do behind-the-scenes work and I hate meetings and convincing people of anything, that they should adopt my plan, accept my offer, invest in my company, or listen to a plea bargain. I love work which a lot of people disdain – it has taken me a long time to admit that because many, many people have taken my school aptitude and translated it into potential which I’m always trying to live up to (go to law school!) and I think in order for me to be happy, I just have to realize that those high-visibility jobs are just not for me. I’m such the little worker bee. I love being part of a collective hive and doing my little part competently. I love to find hidden bugs in programming code, to be part of a team of engineers fixing a manufacturing problem together, to have a charismatic leader to follow – I’m great at follow-though, not so good at initiation. Right now, I’m not even so good at finding paid work, but I intend to go back someday, dammit.
So secret pal, did we get anywhere close to what you do for a living? Or are we totally in left field?
