Yay! We are starting off the new year with something fun for everyone.
We are giving away 3 $75 gift certificates over where I used to work! Click the photo below to enter!
Last year I was quite busy and was working several web consulting gigs while building this little store. One of my projects that I took on was a job over at YummyMummyClub.ca . If you grew up in the 80s like I did you might recognize the face behind Yummy Mummy — Erica Ehm. She was the first female VJ on Much Music.
I met Erica for the first time in early 2009 and was hired a few days after she interviewed me. Let it be known, when I met her in person I was a little star struck. I mean, here is a woman whom I admired and aspired to be (she probably met NKOTB several times and maybe even Tiffany and Boyz II Men — no making fun of my musical preferences please!) sitting across from me at a local coffee shop talking to me like a friend would.
I had no clue what she was saying to me (I was more than a little tongue tied) and was thinking “OH MY! What do I say to Erica Ehm? I hope I don’t look like a fool drinking this cup of coffe in front of her”. And then I think I spilled my coffee all over my jacket — the details of our first meeting escape me now — I’ve tried to erase it from my memory! HAHA
Anyhow, things got a bit too busy here so I had to end my job over there in September. It was one of the saddest days of my life — to leave a job and friends I loved.
Even though it has been 4 months since my last day over there, I still miss them but know that the decision to leave and focus on this store was the right one. I got to meet all of you and am doing something I truly love (besides web work).
Ok enough about my previous job. Here’s the link for the contest in case you missed it:
Good luck! Contest ends Feb 13, 2010
