Enjoyable jobs do exist...

I started my job as the "Assistant Director in the Rollins Center of Entrepreneurship & Technology in the Marriott School of Business at Brigham Young University" (whew...) on August 15. I could not have gotten a more perfect job (finally) for my personality (semi type A.... semi red... oops). I am over 5 students, I plan activities for the Founders (big time donors), Associate Founders (up and coming big time donors), plan the Business Plan Competition (think Cold Stone, 1-800-CONTACTS, Kalood), also have my hand in about 5 other competitions, I plan events like the one below, we took the Associate Founders to the Energy Solutions Arena to eat yummy food, listen to a speaker (lady who started Utah Valley Magazine and who has interview a million awesome people) and tour the place!
It was weird to be in the empty arena... it seemed so much smaller.
Here is the basketball floor.. worth 5 million approx., a huge jigsaw puzzle and they replace it every 5 years.. crazy! But all bundled up like this... it is kinda anti- climactic.
Here is the locker room, it is new and so rad! Too bad they can't use it because of the lock-out. It is way nice in there and just cool because not many people get to go down there ( I guess.. .they probably tell everyone that)
Game Schedule (hopefully!!!)
View from the bottom, don't see that too often!
Here was the gorgeous view from our conference room. It is amazing and inspiration to be around these men and women who have started their own businesses, they are really motivating people who are so friendly and charismatic.

Soo.... that is one example of a perk... it took some work to get it put together(I just showed up this year... but next year.... yikes!) But in February I am planning a retreat with the Founders, they are going on this ship....
to the Carribbean....

and I get to go... so does Trent! I have already started planning and it is intense, but it is awesome!

Sorry for the bragging post, but I have put in my time of crazy jobs and well... this is my blog :)
