a decade ago I got hired to work at my favorite fruit company and in the immortal words of the Grateful Dead, what a long strange trip it’s been. No one works anywhere for 10 years, well no one works for someone else for 10 years. That’s the thing about this job, I enjoy what I do. It’s not been perfect but that’s true even if you’re self-employed.
I’ve grown and I have surprised myself. Me, a self-described misanthrope, working in retail for a decade, oh the stories I could tell. I have seen so much change in technology and not only on the customer facing side. Through all the shiny new products, changes of shirts, changes of management from the top down, one simple truth has remained – the best of us are here to change people’s lives.
It’s the thing that kept me going in everyday for the last 10 years and will keep me going in. I’m may not like everyone but every day there is at least one person whose life I can make better with what I do.
