Promotion
...yeah, I finally got it! 

I had been working on a speech for my annual review coming up in May.  Just in case I hadn't received a promotion by then, I was going to 'present my case'!  Wouldn't you know, they bombarded me with a speech of their own yesterday.  I got it...my anticipated promotion.  To not sound like a brat about all of this, let me explain.  They moved me in my very own office back in November.  I've been doing this job and assuming more and more responsibilities that come with it since last summer.  We have doubled our clients since then and are on the brink of some really big things. 

For such a small company this is all so very exciting.  For me starting here as simply a job and really creating a place for myself within the company...I'm psyched!!  It's taken a lot of hard work and even understanding from my husband.  He's been so supportive!

So...not to boast or anything, but I just wanted to share.  I'm now an Account Manager!  Since technically my title has been Administrative Assistant all of this time, it made me feel better for them to acknowledge the change was deserved :)

Happy days, friends!

Leah how wonderful! Congrats! I have been in your exact same place, but unfortunately at my old company, they let me do the job for over a year, but didn't give me a promotion or compensation for running their HR department!! Argh. So I moved on to another company who appreciated me! (This was years ago BTW, pre-kids.) So, I'm so happy the did give you the recognition you deserve!! Celebrate!
