It’s officially official…

I officially resigned my position as Vice President of Better For Babies, Inc. this morning. I have not worked much if any since May of this year. My employer is having a very hard time economically and needed to free up funds so offered for me to have the summer off with the boys. I gladly accepted. I have missed them tremendously the last 2 1/2 years since I began working for BFB. I was hired to work only about 20 hours a week as a virtual office manager of sorts but after barely six months was promoted to VP and rarely worked less than 30 hours a week. This isn’t easy to do with three boys who are all home schooled. As a long time cloth diaper and natural parenting advocate I was thrilled upon taking this job. However, I quickly realized many things about it that I did not like and things I would indeed do very differently should I choose to start my own little crunchy store. I strongly believe that the core policy for any business should be honesty. Without it, failure is an absolute. I had fun doing what I did but I do have regrets most of which are based upon the fact that I gave so, so much for so very little (non-monetarily speaking) and I was the one who lost in the end. I lost a great deal of time with my family which I had available to sacrifice or I would not have applied for the job. However, the cause was not what I had hoped for. I will not fret. You live and learn through living and learning. One can only become better. I am always in search of what I can do and how I can give an ounce of my self toward the greater good and I am happy I have the freedom to move on once again and find that opportunity.
