I already have a job, lol!

I'm going to start Monday working with my friend Heather who has her own business, Piedmont Provisions, just like I did the moment Dan got laid off last year. Plus, she's offered me a partnership, which I'm wowed at considering. Williams-Sonoma is wanting to carry her products and have her do pop-ups, also several snack subscription boxes, and she is moving into a bigger space with Lindsay's Culinary Market and 1000 Faces Coffee which is my favorite coffee roaster. She will have a fermentation room (65 degrees!) and we will make jam and baked goods both for local markets and now national distributors!

I have six job applications outstanding for work in my field. I told her my first priority is figuring out what I can do to support Nic and me, but I'm thinking that considering this partnership may be a turning point in my life.

But growing herbs and veg and fruit for use in our own homemade products? Producing something I can be proud of? Getting out of healthcare for a while or indefinitely?

I think it's a good plan.

WOW!!! I looked at her website and it looks fantastic! I hope you do consider a partnership. Or maybe part time health care work, part time with this? You deserve to be a valued colleague in your work. xxoo

Oh my gosh, how fun! I know it's not in your usual field, but give it some time - if it's a success, it could be a really nice change. :) You could be livin' the dream - doing something ridiculously fun and also making money at it.
