This happened a few months ago. And what’s interesting about it is that many times over the last few years, as I lived my life being the owner and managing all the day-to-day operations of a clothing and accessory boutique, I regularly shopped at Natural Grocers. A store I loved shopping at with good energy and a great selection of healthy foods and numerous other products. I would think, in a dreamy way, what would it be like to have a job there where I simply worked for a certain amount of time and then went home. Went home with none of the normal owner issues of endless thoughts and worries, sleepless nights, and always having additional work to accomplish.
So… After closing my boutique last year, taking some much needed time off, creating a new lifestyle and business, working at Natural Grocers is now part of me creating my best lifestyle while building my lifestyle business and providing consistent income for day-to-day expenses. I’m also learning more about eating and preparing healthy foods, natural ways of healing, the grocery business, and many new skill sets associated with all. I’ve also created an opportunity to connect with and develop relationships with an entirely new community of people.
Keeping my dreamy way of thinking in mind… What is it like having a job where I work a certain amount of time and then go home? It’s wonderful! It has also been fun meeting new people (employees, store support, and customers). A learning curve of new products, procedures, and policies. The job has also felt physically and mentally energizing as well as exhausting depending on the task I’m performing. One part I’ve most enjoyed is getting praise from management acknowledging a job well done or a new idea offered. Although I acknowledged many accomplishments working for myself over 18 plus years, I’ll admit there was a lot more talk about accomplishing more better and faster. All things considered, my job at Natural Grocers is a wonderful opportunity for learning and growing.
