This week in the land of workdom....
The CFO came to visit for a day. I loved meeting her. a HER. I've never met a female CFO before. Sure, they're out there by plenty. But I went to lunch with her and had her tell me her entire career pathway. She and I shared a lot of the same desires for the accounting pathway. And then I observed her demeanor in our 4 hour meeting. She was direct, but calm. Smart, but approachable. I didn't take my eyes of her and watched her every move. and noted every question she asked. It was the quickest 4-hour meeting I've ever sat through.
I also had to drive us to lunch, and as she was getting in my car, I quickly grabbed a paper off the ground. My urine custody form that I had to take for background checks. Here, lady. That right there says I own my pee.
By way of other non-secreting news, this was probably one of the most fulfilling weeks of my career. I built SO many reports, showing our gross profit on every home sold, and then they were all put into a three inch binder, and then the CFO, President, Vice Presidents, Controller, and other important people, and myself sat around a table for 4 hours and talked about them. And after this final review, they go on to the Board and our investors. And I produced them. Isn't that cool?
And, listened to lots of podcasts while I work. LOVED this one. Realize I've been doing the morning miracle all on my own, as I've been getting up as early as 5 am to workout, meditate, and set my intentions for the day.
Also been walking the streets of Sugarhouse and talking with Rachel a lot. I LOVE getting to know her and becoming a part of her family. We've also discussed some really deep principles like order and focus.
A good week! Below, a tour of my work, including the CRAZY back hallway. I seriously feel like I'm tripping each morning I walk up the stairs to my desk....
Upward and onward,
