Just fine...

Whew! I am through with that moment I was having. I had to press forward and basically get an entire new staff. Interviewing all these people and reading all these writing samples took me through something. I knew it was time to grow and my little family was growing and I was resisting. I had to get myself in check so I could effectively manage all of the personalities and philosophies and opinions that come with the new people.

I hired 2 new sales people; a project editor; an on air personality and brought on two new freelance writers (and hopefully one more Omi :).

It would seem like I'd be saying, "Whew! More help!" but it means a lot of work in an area with which I struggle, MANAGEMENT. I had to free my mind and my plate so I would manage my new staff well. They are a great team and if managed properly, we'll see some real progress around here.

This time reminds me of the beginning of my company. The energy and excitement of the people I have around me is contagious. I know that they would not have applied for these positions if they did not see a place that was on the move and something they would be proud to associate with. I am proud of my company. Proud of my and my husbands accomplishments.

I have a new reminder on my desk that reads, "wdUt?" It's code for "what do YOU think?"

Because in the end, that's all that really matters.
