The helpful people in my life and career keep coming back to me in sometimes fond memories.
Having had a military career, an accounting career, a home making career as wife and mother and a writing career; this allows for a bit of story telling.
With a steaming cup of coffee at my desk I sometimes look back on my previous accounting career and the best part I recall is the helpful people with whom I worked.
From a part time job with my granddaughter in my retirement years, (a granddaughter who started as a receptionist in a fairly large company to become accounting manager and later general manager of the company), all the way back to my first office job right out of high school.
Of course every aspect of business, large or small, has evolved with almost unbelievable leaps and bounds since the advent of the electronic age.
In my first bookkeeping position, the helpful person I remember was the business owner’s wife. Although she was rather strict (maybe I needed that at the time) she did teach me the basics and kept me interested in the work for some time.
I can recall each office position in the accounting area of the companies I worked for and the people involved.
In one job I learned to tune out all the nonsense conversations going on around me and was able to concentrate only on my accounting work. My husband sometimes said that I became so proficient at this that I tuned him out as well. I don’t think that was the case but I gave him the benefit of the doubt.
Over the years I came in contact with many helpful people, although my most important interest in life was my family. A husband, four daughters and a son were the focal point. Although I cannot say that they were helpful with my career in the early years, I loved them immensely and later I became more interested in their careers.
After my husband passed away, I must say that now, in my later years, my children and grandchildren are the most helpful people in my life and in my career.
A new career as a blogger working from home has become very fulfilling and I have met many talented, helpful, creative people in the past few years. The internet marketers that I have met recently are so giving and helpful with their advice and kindness toward the daughter and granddaughter that I am working with that I cannot praise them enough.
Each day becomes more fulfilling in this blogging career and all I have to remember to do is get away from my computer periodically and get some exercise.
My best to you,
