My New...

Okay I have never had anyone give me something like this before. And it's not even Christmas or close to my birthday! While at work we talk about a lot of different things. One day I was talking about how I was teaching a friend to play the piano & he in return was going to teach me how to play the guitar. I was so excited I've been wanting to learn for awhile now. A co-worker Nic, showed me a website I could look at to find cords for songs that I wanted to learn. I got even more excited. Then a couple days later when I got to work Nic told me he had something for me. I was like 'really that's cool' not thinking to much about it. As the day went on he said he brought his guitar in so others said he should bring it in during break & play something for us. At break I saw it... the guitar was gorgeous!! Nic played 'With Or Without' by U2, one of our favorite bands! Then he played a song that he had made up, which was good too. At the end of work I got an appointment for the next day. I'm notorious for getting appointments right before we go on break or leave for the day. Because it was for the next day I had to stay and fill out some paperwork first. Nic said he still had that thing to give me, I had completely forgot about it. He said he would wait for me to finish. As we were walking to our cars Nic had a lot of things in his hands so I asked to carry something, he gave me his guitar to hold. As he was putting the things in his car he was telling me about his guitar & how good it was, how he had broke it but fixed it. How he has had it for a long time but has another guitar and that the strings were new. The whole time Nic was telling me this I was holding it & amazed. Then Nic told me he was giving it to me... I was shocked!! I asked if he was serious... he smiled and said yes! I'm pretty sure my mouth was wide open. I didn't know what to say, I said thanks & couldn't stop smiling. I even asked if I could give him a hug & asked if it wouldn't be weird because he was married. He said it was okay, he said I could use this to learn on until I got something better. I'm still shocked that someone would think of me and give me a GUITAR! As we left I had to tell someone... so I called Nick Smith the guy that's supposed to teach me to play and I just couldn't stop smiling. He said he was excited for me & wanting to see a picture. As a thank you to Nic I made him a card that looked just like the guitar.

Going Private

I've been reading a lot of my friends' blogs & they are all going private now which got me thinking. Why didn't I do this in the beginning when I first started my blog. Well, for different reasons like me posting a lot of pictures of the work I do, I'm going to go private in the next couple weeks. If you want to be able to see my blog just give me your email address & i'll invite you so we all can still keep in touch. Hope you are having a good day!

Appointments!

So at work today... Remember I work for America's Solar doing cold calling to notify people of the Federal & State funded energy program for homeowners. Right now I am calling the Tucson area. This has been my second day & it's been good I made an appt yesterday. Today as I'm calling people I got this one guy that was kind of pestering me and talking to me about why it is good for him. I had told him how it's good for the environment & all the tax incentives and how it will help to permanetly lower your monthly utility bills. At one point in the conversation I told him to hold for a second because I couldn't think of anything else to say to him. I asked a couple co-workers and they suggested a couple things. When I got back on I repeated the things I told him, and I even told him he was making me nervous. He then said he liked my honesty and would check out the website & if he was more interested then he would give me a buzz. I was a little flustered after that. One co-worker said that I should pray that he calls be back. But within the next 10 phone calls I got 2 good appointments! I was so excited I think that guy helped me to further appriciate what we are doing with this company and how much it could help people. I know that you need to truely believe in the product that you are selling & be sincere that people will know that you are trying to help them. Anyways I have to get back to work. Oh if anyone wants to know more about my company the website is www.americassolarllc.com

Wicked Pixie!

My friend, Courtney, owns her own salon in Oregon and she comes down every month or so to do hair for her clients here in Arizona. I always get to pick her up from the airport which is fun! Yeah the airport fun... I know my way around there very well! Anyways I would go down to her little salon down here & help her in any way I can. One day I ended up bringing my camera & talking some pictures of girls she had done and they are now on her salon website. I'm so excited it makes me feel like a professional! Here is the website www.wickedpixiesalon.com if you click on hair & policies you will see the pictures I took. One of the girls I was talking pictures of reminded me of my cousin, Kelsey Smith. What do you guys think?
