Very recently I have had an amazing new opportunity fall into my lap. All semester I have been working long hours between two jobs on top of my final semesters at Iowa State, and trying to find somewhat of a work life balance. A few months ago I had dinner with a friend whom I had not seen in quite a long time. She had told me all about this new job that she had gotten and how they were looking to hire more team members. She talked it up quite a bit and at the time I was not interested and thought it seemed way too good to be true. In August I had just got hired at my second job to pick up hours on the weekend as a server. I had high hopes for this job and thought it would bring in a lot of extra spending cash. I met a lot of amazing people, but I quickly discovered working as a server was not for me, but I had committed already and did not want to let anyone down. Also I was skeptical I would not be able to find another second job that would be flexible with my school schedule and my job at the daycare. I also didn’t want to have to give up every weekend and never have time to see Reggie. After a few months I found myself growing increasingly more unhappy. I was working double shifts, not getting breaks, and going entire days without eating and constantly being on my feet. I was miserable. I dreaded going to work every weekend, so much it would make me feel sick, but I did not want to quit. I didn’t want to be a quitter. Eventually after having a conversation with my mom I realized it wasn’t worth it and to at least give this new opportunity a chance and figure out more about it. So I took a leap of faith and I applied. I quickly heard back and they wanted to interview me. After a few days of waiting I heard back and was offered an amazing offer that was too great to pass up. This job was Everly Rings, an amazing ring company that offers engagement rings, wedding bands, and stackable rings. The owner is a successful blogger that gets to travel full-time. Also after flying back for a weekend I got to work very close with her and she is the sweetest most down to Earth person. I just started this week and have already put in a lot of hours. One of my favorite parts about this job is the flexibility. No set schedule. I get to just come and go when I want, and I get to work as many hours as I want. I am so self motivated to come in and get as many things accomplished as I can. Another plus is getting to put in hours where ever I am at. A portion of the work can be done online so I get to work at home, in between class, or even on weekend visits seeing Reggie. This business has an amazing team and they offer several promotions rewarding teammates for their hard work. I am so excited to begin this new venture in my life, and am so incredibly blessed to have been given this experience. Just wanted to share my excitement with all of you! Also if you are interested about the company go check them out on Instagram.
