Bye Bye old Job...Hello new Job.


I just turned in my 2 weeks notice.  I am shaking so bad right now. Ha!

I sat in on the weekly sales meeting call this morning for the new job; and let me tell you- I am so excited.  The new boss has gone above and beyond to help me feel welcome and comfortable.  He mentioned on the call that he recently hired 4 new reps and is in the process of hiring 5 new reps; he is slammed right now, because not only does he hire them- but then he has to train them as well.  In other words- the growth of the company is blowing up right now.  It's true; I had a facial on Saturday from him and when I went out Saturday night with my friends- I probably got about 6 compliments on "how good my skin looks" at the party we went to.  Almost everyone asked me where they could get this new facial and how much it would cost them.  I don't sell the facials themselves- I sell the machine that gives the facial.  So you know microderm?  This is a machine- like microderm- but different.  I will be selling the machine to plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and medical spas.  It made me feel so good that so many people were asking about it (I wasn't bringing it up I SWEAR!) and one of my friends who is studying to become a dermatologist in LA wanted to know all about the machine.  While I haven't gone through training yet, I told him all that I could remember/think of- and he told me that when he is done with school and he opens his new office- he will buy a machine from me.  Before I even got half way through the benefits of these facials- he said, "Done!  I'll buy one! I want one!  Can I get a facial from you with this machine?  I'll trade you botox for it!!!" made me feel good that someone in the industry was enthusiastic about it and said they would buy a machine from me (eventually).  It gives me hope that I can be successful in selling this thing. :)

So that's the new job.  Workouts/eating/all of that jazz- meh.  It's going.  I didn't work out at all last week and I'm a little disappointed in myself.  But today is a new day and I am back on the wagon.  Believe it or not I was really seeing results that first week and it has motivated me to get back on it.  PLUS I am a little intimidated with some of the reps working at the new job.  They aren't skanky girls by any means- but they are all beautiful and they all look fabulous; their skin, their hair, their size.  (There are guys too that are reps but of course I'm only concerned about what the other women look like).  I know that going into plastics and derms offices- I will be judged by my appearance.  So I am also motivated by that to get my ars into shape.

I did it!  I turned in my 2 weeks!  Yay me!




  1. Congrats on the new job, Dizzy. I know you will do well. I'm an Avon rep and though I don't really make a lot of money at what I do, it pleases me to to sell something that helps women to feel better about themselves. For so many years that I was obese, I didn't bother to fix my hair or wear make-up. It is amazing what little things like that can do for your self-esteem.

  2. Yippie! I'm so excited for you. You're going to knock em dead and make money doing it!

  3. That is so awesome I know the internal conflict that it brought you but you are going to be amazing! And that's awesome that you have motivation! But remember there is only one Dizzy! So don't sell your self short comparing yourself to other people:)

  4. Congrats on both the two week notice and on how excited you are about this new venture! As for the looks thing... I think you've got it already or they wouldn't have hired you ;)

    You rock!

  5. I am so happy for you doll! You deserve this so much!
