Taste of the Real World

Well, the first 3 days of my new job have officially given me a taste of the "real world", and I think I've decided that I'd like to go back to the fantasy world I was living in. Never in my life have I been so glad that it's Wednesday...and I still have 2 more days to go! UGH. No, I think once I get the hang of things I'll enjoy my work more, but right now I'm feeling very overwhelmed and helpless. There's so much to grasp so quickly that I feel lost most of the time. I guess that's normal??? Next week, I'll go to Austin for a 4 day company orientation, so hopefully things will start "clicking" more by then. Maybe I'll start recruiting some more piano students soon. I liked my perfect little world from the past 3 years where I was my own boss and I could make my own schedule. Ahhh...those were the days.

I know what you mean, after a break it's always hard to get back in the groove. But you will be great at your job! I hope you are enjoying H town!

Yay! Thanks for the note, Sarah! I feel like I know you, through BP, too! I'm sure we will actually meet because of Quinn soon!

So about recruiting more piano students... I wanted to tell you about a website that Matt has used to pick up piano students--you only pay for leads who actually contact you (like $5/lead). It's really the cheapest & most effective advertising he's found yet. The website is www.clickforlessons.com.

I was going to post something about it the other day when I read your blog, but I didn't want to be a crazy blog stalker. :)
