I got the local Job!!

Post  Richard on Mon Apr 02, 2012 10:14 pm

I'm not allowed to give the details yet, but I got the local job I was after. I'm winding up my business this month, and start May 1st. It will be nice to not be living on the road (my last project was 11 weeks in Illinois) and to get steady paychecks.

It's going to be a fun job, though really challenging. Fact is, the challenge is where the fun is.

So, you guys will see me around the local campgrounds for years to come. I'll be able to start seriously saving to buy Dave and Darlene's camper. I just need them to keep going to RV shows.

It hasn't been announced yet, but the core of it is that the newspaper here designed a job around my skills. Im not allowed to go into details yet, but I should be able to tell you more by the camping trip.

Now Chuck, I'm a Sales Pro. It's more like, "Where you like me to unload this pile of manure?"

Congrats Richard. I know you'll like staying in the area for work. We will keep attending RV shows, but only for the ideas we can get from them. Keep us updated and we'll see you camping soon.

Thanks for all the good wishes. I'm spending the last half of this month wrapping up most of the obligations from my business, so I'm ready to concentrate on the task at hand starting May 1st.

It's Official, I am now the VP of Sales (for Inside Sales and Small Business Initiatives) at the Kingsport Times, Johnson City Press, plus the 3 weekly newspapers in Sandusky Newspapers' "North East Tennessee Multimedia Group".

Shorter version, I got a great job right here where I live.

I'm completely stoked up about it!

I'm in charge of migrating the classified staff into an inside sales staff. I also will be working on "long tail" projects aimed at creating marketing solutions for small businesses.

Hey, if you have another job opening, Butch will be looking for some type of employment in the fall. You know, one of those jobs that pays in the 6 figures, but you only show up for work 3 days a week from 10 am - 2 or 3 pm. Don't have to do too much, have little responsibility, but has health insurance. That's what he's looking for. Let us know if you have one of those.

Hope it's all you expect it to be. Good Luck.

Save one of those days off for the Friday before Labor Day and we'lll plan on Grayson Highlands Thurs evening until Monday evening.

Donna, I didn't think Butch wanted that many hours!

I am Vice President of Sales for the Northeast TN Multimedia Group, with primary responsibility for Inside Sales and Small Business Initiatives. In other words, I run the classified departments of 5 newspapers, including the Johnson City Press and the Kingsport Times News. My primary task is to design and implement the program that will take us from a classified department that takes orders, to a true sales team that handles all of the newspaper's print, online and other products.

So far, it's been a lot of analysis, structuring and projecting fuiture results, but the actual sales coaching will start soon.
