Fruition Update: Part Five

Remember that writing job I applied for on a whim?


About a minute after settling on my New Year’s word, my boss called me up and asked me if I would be interested in going part-time for an hourly wage instead of working as an independent contractor. We’ve discussed this before, and it’s fallen through twice already. This time there’s an official starting date: February 1.

Probably 16 hours a week to start, he said.

A few months later, I’m averaging 25 hours a week instead.

It’s fruition for him, too. I’m his first employee. With the time I’m saving him by taking on extra work, he has more resources to devote toward building up our clientele. More work comes in every week.

He’s updating his website. He wants me to give him a bio and include my photo; somehow I became integral.

When people ask me what I do, I tell them I’m a writer.

Oh hey there, struggling stepparent!

Listen, I put together a new website just for high-conflict blended families: Blended Family Frappé. Come on over and join the hundreds of other stepparents who are reclaiming their sanity one Sunday newsletter at a time.

I'll never ever share your information. Powered by ConvertKit
