6 Months Ago… I was happy. Happy that someone had finally given me a chance. Happy that I had a home. I was Over the moon. My mother was proud.
5 Months Ago… I was clueless. There was just so much to learn. I was scrambling against the curve. Making juvenile mistakes at every bend. And my colleague was being a pain in the ass about it.
4 Months Ago… I was insecure. Doubting where I had put myself. Would I enjoy this? How did I end up here? Where would I go? Who would I become?
3 Months Ago… I was depressed. I couldn’t even lie to myself anymore. I had no passion here. It had become a job. Not a career. But where would I go?
2 Months Ago… I stuck my head out. People around the office were talking about something I had an interest in. And I made it known that I wanted to be a part of it.
1 Month Ago… I helped convince our risk-loving CEO that we drastically needed to hedge our FX exposure. He gave me permission to purchase $160,000,000 in call options. The largest single hedge ever taken out in the company’s 20-year history.
2 Weeks Ago… I could have saved the company $450,000 if they had taken my advice. Instead they paid someone else for theirs, and lost it.
Today our CFO told me that I’d go far.
A lot can happen in six months.
