The first 90 days of any employment is the grace period. So they say. It’s an opportunity for an employee to say, “this place is crackers” or for an employer to say, “you’re an idiot”.
The first 90 days of the journey with Stitched Smile Publications, my brand new company, has been a complete dream. Yes, there have been snags and hiccups along the way, but the team I’ve found and put together is first class.
We have, since January, put out 8 books. We’ve hit top 100 with two of those. And each book has a great rating and set of reviews on Amazon.
The only drawback I can see is that there’s less time for me to write but that’s OK. I write in my own time and way. So this is actually…perfect.
I’ve learned that people want to associate themselves with me or my company’s name, now. Not a bad thing. Just weird. I’m trying to get accustomed to people knowing me by reputation and name. I’m more of a behind-the-scenes kind of gal. I like to sit and observe from the corner but this position pushes me right into the spotlight… kicking and screaming.
I love this, though. I’ve never felt more right or accomplished as I do right now.
Because this is the house that Stitch made….and it’s a fine house, at that.
