I got an opportunity to work for one of the best companies in the world. It’s an opportunity that I can’t pass up.
Challenging myself is a big part of my work happiness.
So when a headhunter emailed me in LinkedIn and asked if I was interested in working at USAA. I said YES!
The position is to help with with User Experience on their website. They found me because I’ve worked hard to build up my resume over at Domino Connection.
It’s my other business that pays the bills.
Always Have Fun
Work Happy Now is fun, but I haven’t earned much money from trying to help people become better leaders at work. I think I’ve earned about $200 in the last 6 months from this site.
I thought when I started Work Happy Now that once I build a reputation in the industry that all kinds of business owners would contact me to help them create a great place to work.
Happy employees equates to higher retention of employees, higher earnings, and better results.
I do get contacted every 6 months or so, but most of the time these companies just inquire and don’t hire me to help them.
So about 5 years ago I stared helping companies improve their websites with a separate business. I use a lot of the techniques I’ve learned at Work Happy Now to help them improve their company, so all my research and writing has paid off.
I’ve come to appreciate that Work Happy Now is just a passion project. I hope to continue to keep delivering great content, but I can’t promise how much I’ll be able to research and write.
I’m going to try my best, but I could use your help.
Everything happened so fast that I haven’t had much time to process everything. From the time I found out that there was a job opening I was offered and job and given a start date, it only took 3 weeks.
We moved up the family vacation, so we could see my family in Pennsylvania and my wife’s family in Missouri.
Help the Cause
Now I have to make my new job a top priority, but I refuse to let Work Happy Now just fade away.
If you are interested in helping me keep Work Happy Now going over the next year please contact me. I’m in need of an editor and two writers.
Would you be willing to help me continue to help people work happier.
I would also be interested in bringing in a partner if I can find the right fit. I would be willing to split a portion of the revenue if you can help me continue to grow this passion project. So if you have a similar passion for work happiness please contact me, so we can talk about your ideas of growing.
