1st Donny 1:1 reads, “God helps those who help themselves. He doesn’t want to just DO something for you simply because you ask. He opens doors but requires that you take action to walk through said doors. This is why some Christians are more ‘blessed’ than others. It’s because they get out there and grab what they want.”
I took a trip to Seattle to check things out. The company who offered the job is nearby and, while I was amazed at the offer received, I felt it seemed almost TOO easy. I know God’s opening a lot of doors for me lately. I’m amazed by that. I’m very excited to say the least.
The job is legitimate and, according friends who live in the area, the company is well established and respected. There’s one major downside that I can summarize in 4 words: Seven Days A Week. I’d be the only finance manager and would be expected to be in the office 7 days a week. That’s rather rough, but perhaps some long hours will be just what I need.
While up there I also spoke with another dealership who has an opening for the same position. The pay is actually a bit higher and days off would be a reality. Unlike the first place, this one didn’t offer a position on the spot. The man who interviewed me is a Christian and I was honest with him about my porn-producing past. We’ll see if that hurts me.
A decision must be made soon about the first job offer.
I am of the belief that the phone call I received yesterday was a gift. While in Seattle I met up with some friends from the adult industry for dinner, and spent the night as a guest in one of their homes. Admittedly, thoughts were running through my mind that there are some very good people in the business and I would miss dealing with them. Then came the reminder that I’ve been selfish in many ways in the form of that phone call. I was reminded of just one of the many reasons I need to leave.
I should’ve taken photos. Seattle’s beautiful. Alas, I left all of my cameras at home.
