Welcome to the Working World

Brett started an internship this week with 8 Pillars, a financial coaching company, in Highland, Utah. Matt Bauman (Brett's teammate), recommended Brett to his aunt, who is the VP of the Coaching sector of the company. Brett's first day was Thursday. He'll work about 5 hours a day, but after 7:ooam workouts, then going to work until 3 or 4pm, it's a full-day of work for him. The first thing Brett said to me after his first day was, "Thanks for working all-day, everyday and not complaining about it." He's finally getting a taste of what I've been doing for 3 years!! But he's really excited about the work he's doing and the people he works with. Hopefully, if everything goes as planned, he will be trained and certified as the first, 8 Pillars Financial Coach! He's working hard and I'm so excited for the opportunity and experience he's getting. Plus, it's a paid internship so that's always a perk! Welcome to the working world babe!!!

Good for Brett! I was the breadwinner for a while and I am grateful for that experience because I will always appreciate John for working. I complained the whole time I worked so you are a better woman than I.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOooh you lucky girl! I can't wait til my hubby is out doing some sort of work. School is a long haul! You're right, it is hard to put 8 hours in every day. That's so sweet of Brett to notice right off.

I'm ready for another girl's night, you?
