I honestly get ideas of what to write on my Blog as I walk to work a few mornings a week to the golf course. This morning I was trying not to think about how cold is was and that it was snowing again and that my hands were cold because I forgot to wear mitts and my ears were cold because I never wear a hat! :) Long sentence....but this is when I started to think about working at the golf course.
I moved to Turner Valley in the February 2013. At the time I was still teaching downtown and commuting. Those days were long. I continued to commute and then in the winter of 2014 my mother was very sick and I travelled back and forth to Toronto to help take care of her. My mother died in May of 2014 and I just wanted to stay close to home. I did not want to commute to the city.
Here is where the title of this Blog begins! In June 2014 I walked over to the golf course and asked if they might be hiring. I just wanted to be outside. Can you believe that they said YES, but we only have a "Starter" position they said. A Starter (for non golfers) is the person that makes sure each foursome tees off at the correct time and keeps the flow of the day going. Secretly that is what I wanted to do. I was actually famous...the 1st Lady Starter of the Turner Valley Golf Course! I had a few shifts a week, met new people and got over my fear of the microphone by having to announce foursomes to the Tee Box. It was a wonderful summer. I had been in the right place at the right time.
And the plot thickens....at our year end pizza staff party I heard someone in Marketing was leaving. I turned to the GM and said I would like to apply for that position. I was in the right place at the right time. This position turned into a Marketing and Tournament Coordinator position. I am delighted that I can walk to work a few days a week, play golf in the summer and still have time for my home business. I'm living the healthy lifestyle I love and sharing that with everyone I meet!
Do you have a similar story of being in the right place at the right time? Leave a comment tell me about how it happened to you. You just never know what will come into your life. You just have to ASK! You are meant to meet the people that make a difference in your life!!
Spring is coming!
