Rise and Grind

I decided to get a job to help with expenses of London and Bermuda. I answered a makeup artist listing on Craigslist. Went on the interview...the girl loved me. Its a makeup cart position in a mall in NJ. She was only offering $8 an hour. I said yes although makeup artists make $15-$26/hr. I figured it would be good on my resume. Its a start-up and one person is financing it.

I went home and started thinking...the money I would be making would hardly cover the cost of transportation/food/my time.

I emailed her that I couldn't do it. She raised the hourly wage. She would also be paying me in cash. I accepted. This means...I'll be working on my feet every day from 10-6. I can work 7 days a week if I want. Then, I will go home to work on my business, the magazine, and blog for all the other people I guest-blog/contribute to. I don't mind as long as this takes me where I need to get to. Pray for me ya'll. No rest in my future.

You'll do fine. It will be hard, and some days you might not want to but the end result will be worth it.

I like the new background. Cool that you negotiated for a better salary, I wish I had done that when I started here. Nina is going to London! Nina is going to London!!
