A Great Half-Day!

Hey all...I'm happy to report that my day's been going really well so far!

First, I actually went to bed at midnight last night. (I know that's only barely today, but give me some room on this one.) So, I'm more rested than I've been in a while.

Second, I had requests for two proposals that our sales reps needed by next week and I've already finished one of them and sent it back to the rep.

Third, a proposal of my own that I'm drafting for one of my own leftover clients got a positive review from my boss, so I sent that out to my client this morning.

Fourth, the big boss of our sales team pulled me aside to tell me that my position is being morphed into a more defined Product Sales Specialist role rather than just the generic support role that it is today. This means more opportunity for incentive income, more true sales opportunities for me and I'll still be able to visit clients on-site on occasion. With the exception of getting my old job back, this is about the best news I could have received today. My mood about work is greatly improved! :)

Fifth, I'm only hear for another 45 minutes before I go to the gym for a quick workout (read: play basketball) and head home to get ready to drive to Arkansas to the in-laws. We're not coming back until Monday, so no work for me until Tuesday!

So, with that being said, I won't be posting over the weekend, so go Jayhawks in the Big 12 tournament and I'm only hoping they will be carrying the games on TV down there.

Have a great weekend all!
