Woke up this morning with my head feeling like a cement slab. That was bad. Then I tried to make noise. I couldn’t … just a miserable squeek escaped by battered throat. So, I have almost no voice today. I have a rough, grating, no-high-pitches voice that cracks every other word. What a way to start the day eh?
Got to HPI today, and first thing Jef does when he gets in is sit me down and tell me they are looking at finances and that they considering ditching Henry. [I know all this]. He says that they will offer Henry’s Pay + My Pay for me to do the billing + network admin. Billing is hella easy. But, they want a guaranteed 40 hours a week, which I can’t do if I’m working at Gateway. So … the offer is on the table, and they want to know what I think. Thought it out [thanks Tony!] and have figured that: If HPI pays me $2,000 after taxes, I’ll quit Gateway and work here. That’s right around $2,500/mo, which is $15/hr. However, I’ll tell them first that I want 30k a year, and then accept the 2k/mo after taxes as a bottom end. Soo … that’s the plan. Thoughts? Questions? Opinions? Advice? Thanks 🙂
** Update ** Wow. Get this. 1:05pm, and I get this call from one of our clients, Matt Carpenter, from SkyRunner.com. He calls up just to tell me “Thank you for being so on the ball and ready to help at the drop of a hat.” He says that every other host he’s ever worked with has always at least a 6 hour turn around time, and he’s really glad that I am always ready, willing, and able to fix his problems extremely quickly. Wow, I feel special. He didn’t call to bitch, just called to say thanks. Wow. [warm fuzzies all around]
