While it is the day that my countdown ends, it also is the day that a new one begins.
I have finished my stint with CorpCom. I was selling advertising on Real Estate folders, traveling across North America. While l enjoyed it, as l have said before, l didn't completely enjoy some of the people l worked with, and being at the mercy of a Boss. Also, the company didn't mind their employees stretching the truth (read Lie) in order to get the sale. I just don't agree with it. It's not the kind of place that l want to work. There are enough things that can happen to disappoint your customers, but to condone and reward lying, not a place l choose to continue working.
I have been a wee bit secretive about where l am moving onto, but now, no more. I am happy to say that l will be moving over to South East Publications. It is a great company that has been around for 26 years printing campground maps. So l will still be travelling around, in my camper-van, selling advertising spots to be on the campground maps.
It is work, and will require hard work at times. A definite benefit will be that l will be staying in campgrounds while l do this work. From my experience, campgrounds are close to nature, a relaxed atmosphere and WAY BETTER then a hotel!!! I will have control over where l work and for which campgrounds and which projects. If they are crappy and are not working out, l am not at the mercy of a prepaid plane ticket where l can't leave until the set date.
So follow me, l'm sure there will be some things to write about as l travel. :-)
