Thoughts for a Thursday

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I need to blog more! I find it cathartic to write my thoughts and emotions.

I'm feeling a tad freaked out by the purchase of the company I work for. It was a ton of work to get to the end of the deal and that was exciting to see it come to fruition. Now, we integrate the companies together and we implement a new accounting system. It sounds like there's work for me for about a year or so. After that it's very unclear. I know nothing in life is certain, but the stress has been coming over in waves of first excitement then freaking out that I'll never find another job that pays as much as I make now. So then I go on Monster.com for five whole minutes and search and find a few positions that would require a 25% or more pay cut. Then I freak out more!!!!

I guess I need to work to take it one day at a time, but sometimes that's harder than it sounds. Meditate, drink water, exercise, work hard, talk it out. Sounds like good advice, right?

Sometimes it's hard to take your own advice.

I have great experience, I interview well, I'm very confident and there are jobs in my field. The problem is honestly I am overpaid for my position. I'm not a CFO, I don't have that experience, so I will have some issues getting a job at that level. But, I'm overpaid as a Controller. And so I freak out again!! Time to make a plan.....get training, get classes, maybe get more CFO level work and see if I can work that into a different job when I need it. I have at least a year, I hope, so it's time to stop freaking out and get it in gear. Make a plan Heather. I can do this!!!

    You do have a plan! And with a year to make it happen, I'm thinking you will make something great happen.

    Maybe it's time to go into business for yourself? If you have a few big corporate clients, or even a bunch of smaller ones who don't want to have a CFO on staff but need those types of services, I bet you could do really well at that.
