Whirlwind Promotion on the 15th

Wow! Its been a busy 30 hours. I got a PROMOTION in DECEMBER! Yeah!
Yesterday, I was in Tallahassee, FL when I got a call from my Director at 10:30am asking me, "Carmella, where are you at? Are you on the road? Can you come to McKinney, Tx today. I'm so sorry it's such a short notice." My response was, "sure"! What's up? Her response was something along the lines that she had just gotten approval to have me come to the First Public Relations Leadership Development School in Texas at Torchmark. That I was being promoted to Manager in Training (Asst. Manager) for Florida. Wow! What a great surprise to be given in December! So, by 3:15pm yesterday I was in a plane on my way to Texas and by 8:00pm I was in my hotel room getting ready for training that started today.

So, I'm here and loving it! It brings back memories of my Institute of Organizational Management training, CAE training and all the different courses that I played for FSAE Members for the Annual Conference and Educational Sessions. I have been yearning for more and now I have the opportunity to help others. My time is now here!

Since I arrived, I found out that I am responsible for the top half of Florida starting around the Orlando/Tampa and up. Looking forward to working with the Public Relations Representatives in these areas!

So, I close with a quote from Thomas Jefferson, "I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have." NOW, I see what my work has gotten me! ;)

Hi Carmella! Jason and I were just telling Cami about the giant chocolate chip cookie you gave us when she was born. And then I found your blog off your facebook page.

You & Syd look great! I can't believe how gorgeous you continue to be -- and Sydney's hair is a lot tamer than I remember. Wow, she's so grown up.

Congratulations on your promotion! That's so exciting for you!

Hugs from all of us,
Starr Turner
