Part time at Kohls!

It's official - I am now working for Mel Rapton Honda, I start 10am tomorrow morning :D


kiwifruitbat: (Anakin message)

I still have to pass a drug test and a background check (and get the US drivers licence), but I have a job! It's with Mel Rapton Honda - a family dealership that's been around for 48 years as of today.... and they are still going strong.

Out of 70+ applicants, 10 of us remain.

THAT was the easy part - now comes the hard part - proving that  I am indeed a good investment.

As some people know, I'm keen to build a business in health care. I've looked at a few, even enrolled in a couple. Here is the latest one... and the last at present.

I've yet to try the products, but a good friend has recommended it to me. So... I'm having a nosey and trying them out.

I'll let people know what I think of them once I get them.

It's the end of the week and it;s 2:30a, Monday morning. I'm exhausted, but I'm not stopping. Work has shifted into high gear, both council and bar.

Both are short staffed. The difference? the bar is trying to fill the gaps. The council just doesn't care.

Net result, I'm more snippy in general. So if you catch the wrong end, it's not at you, you just caught me at a bad time and additional apologies along with this one will follow.

Take care everyone.

Work n fun

kiwifruitbat: (Bats different view)
So it hits me - I'm called Fruitbat and yet none of my pics are of bats. So, I took a different view point. Voila.

As for work - last night was rushed and tiring, but all good fun. Tonight - it's a Gay Trash night.

I just work there folks, I don't come up with these ideas! *Grins*

And it's going to be full bore too!

Well, it's been a while since I last put a post up here.

hugs to all.

My business is giving me headaches. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but you'd think after 2 weeks, I'd have had at least one decent bite.


And so... I need to look at what I'm doing incorrectly. Note - I'm doing everything that needs to be done, but parts are not as good as they should be.

And so I did... increased the numbers talked to and found that even then, there was a critical error being made.

Error corrected and suddenly 3 bites.

Why the title you ask?


An urban legend (possibly true) tells of british engineers asking NASA why a dead chicken gun that the Americans designed kept shattering the best shatter proff glass. After a few days, the responce came back.

"Gentlemen, Please thaw your chickens."

In short - what obvious detail was being overlooked.

In my case, there were a few.

1/ Numbers game. I simply was not speaking to enough people.
2/ Getting numbers. Giving out cards is all well and good. It also means said card will be thrown away within 12 hours. Getting their number allows for them to be contacted later.
3/ Hours. Similar to 1 - work the hours to get the numbers. And working the graveyard shift effectively kills that one.
4/ Dedication. The why I was doing it kept getting lost amidst distractions.

There are more. I'll deal with them as I uncover them.

The gun is loaded and ready.

and I'm not going to gve up.
