More Changes- Feeling Lucky


This is just a quick, short post. I have been at my new job for 1 month and I am now getting a promotion. I'm happy and overwhelmed at the same time. I'll find out all the details on Friday. Everything is confidential for now.

Long story short, last week I got a call. I figured it was a spam call.  I was busy working.  About 10 minutes later, I saw a linkedin invite from the "big boss".  I thought to myself, "how cute, his assistant is linking all the new people". I kept working and responding to emails in order.  I then thought maybe I should accept the invite now.  I did and I had a message from him asking me to call him.  I was a little freaked out. I picked up my cell phone and I had a text from him. I also had a text from my immediate supervisor telling me that the "big boss" was gonna call. I got super freaked out. I called him immediately and was extremely stressed.  He was super chill and asked me if I would be interested in the promotion.  Whew!

Ya'll I was about to have a literal heart attack. I was trying to figure out how I could get fired in 1 month of employment. 

I have no other details but have a call with him on Friday to discuss the details and the salary.  He said my new salary will be "much more" than my current salary. 


  1. Yay!!! This is my first time commenting but I have been following you for a little bit. I, too, am struggling to be debt free and just can't seem to get out of my own way. I've been following you and Double Debt Single Woman and you ladies give me hope! Congrats on the new promotion! It's hard not to expect negative every time the phone rings when that is what you've known. Been there! I hope this promotion is everything you need and want!

  2. Dang girl! You sure stepped into something wonderful! Shows that it pays to take risks. 8-)))

  3. Congrats!! That is so exciting. Woohoo!
